Somalia's Harakat al-Shabab Insurgents Claim Kenya Planning Full-scale Invasion

Somalia's Harakat al-Shabab al-Mujahideen (Movement of the Mujahideen/Warrior-Youth, Al-Shabab, Al-Shabaab) released a statement Friday (Nov. 4) claiming that Kenya, which made a major military incursion into Somalia, is planning a full-scale invasion of the country.

Kenya Planning a Full-Scale Invasion of Somalia


Mogadishu (3/11/2011) – The statement by the Kenyan government that two planes carrying weapons for Al-Shabaab have landed in Baidoa is a mere propaganda that is intended to sanction the mass murder of innocent civilians in Somalia .


At a time when the people of Somalia are recuperating from the severe droughts that have hit the regions of Southern Somalia and began sowing the seeds of their future, the Kenyan government declared war against them, conducting well-coordinated disinformation campaigns and disseminating propaganda in an attempt to legitimize the invasion of their country.


Kenyan fighter jets have already bombed several Somali cities and killed dozens of innocent civilians in the process. The latest strafing of Khaybar Refugee camp in Jilib by the Kenyan military claimed the lives of more than 10 innocent refugees and injured 53 all of them women and children. The systematic killing of innocent civilians and the plan to arbitrarily bomb 10 cities in Southern Somalia not only highlights the barbarity of the Kenyan invasion but also further illustrates the vicious nature of the Kenyan war against the entire people of Somalia .


And as the much-hyped ‘Operation Linda Nchi’ gains momentum, it becomes apparent that the operation is not simply an attempt to defend Kenya’s territorial boundary as they claimed but rather a clever camouflage for the full-scale invasion of Somalia. This is a war not against Al-Shabaab, but against the people of Somalia .


Harakat Al-Shabaab Al Mujahideen has already warned both the Kenyan government as well as its public against the aggressive incursion into Somali territory and hereby emphasizes, once more, that the continued Kenyan invasion and the callous disregard for civilian lives will have some cataclysmic consequences.
