The Somali terrorist group, Al-Shabaab, said on Thursday, June 10, 2015 that it will stage attacks on neighbouring Kenya during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, which begins on June 17 reports the Guardian.
An anonymous senior al-Shabaab commander told newsmen that the group was planning to give Kenyan non-Muslims a true taste of Jihad ( holy war) in the next few days and weeks.
“We will keep targeting and destroying Kenya’s education sector and business sector,’’ the al-Shabaab commander said.
According to the commander, the terrorists are also threatening to attack Kenyan troops stationed in southern Somalia in coming weeks.
Al-Shabaab has carried out several violent attacks on both civilians and armed forces in Kenya since 2011, when Kenyan troops entered Somalia to help the Somali government fight the group.
Al-Shabaab killed 152 students at a university campus in Garissa in April and no fewer than 67 people at a Nairobi shopping mall in September 2013.
