Kenya has been an al-Shabaab target for years. It seems like that will continue, even with US-backed military efforts to defeat the terrorists.

A bloody, day-long terrorist attack on a hotel complex in Kenya’s capital has ended, leaving at least 14 people dead and others severely injured.

On Tuesday, four militants from al-Shabaab — a Somalia-based terrorist organization with ties to al-Qaeda — struck the luxury DusitD2 hotel in Nairobi in what police described as a coordinated attack. What followed was a 20-hour siege that left 11 Kenyans and several foreigners, including at least one American, dead. Early Wednesday morning, Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta told reporters that “all the terrorists [have been] eliminated” and that 700 people escaped to safety.

The group says it launched the assault in response to President Donald Trump’s declaration last year of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

  1. If they have a problem with Trump and his policies, why attack Kenya? What is the connection with it and Trump and Israel?!

    This murderous group needs to be taught Geography among many other subjects – Islam, which they claim to be following, but are NOT!!!
