KDF troops retreat (again) in Somalia


The al-Qaeda media branch GIMF (Global Islamic Media Front) has reported that Kenya forces are preparing to withdraw from the military base in Somalia’s Bula-Gudud town, and are demolishing the camp.

The move comes two days after the Kenyan troops were forced to retreat toward its borders, due to attacks by Harakat Al-Shabaab Al-Mujahideen (al-Qaeda off-shot in Somalia), which retook the towns of El-Add and Badhadhe from KDF.

This was the second debacle of the peacekeeping contingent, just a few days after the 15 January massacre at KDF’s base in Gedo, which killed hundreds of African Union soldiers.
