Israeli special forces - Sayerat ends Nairobi Westgate siege by storming....

Recommended Posts

nuune   

THE Israeli special forces, the Sayeret, have gone into the Nairobi shopping mall under siege by a terror group,

 

The shopping centre is owned by Israelis and renowned as a place where many Israelis hang out.

 

The Sayeret is an elite secret Israeli commando unit responsible for counter-terrorist and top secret intelligence gathering and hostage rescue missions

 

It is considered the most effective counterterrorism force in the world and is a highly secretive special-operations brigade.

 

It has famously been involved in operations in Egypt, Lebanon, Jordan, and, perhaps most famously, Uganda, where its commandos freed 103 Jewish hostages after a 1976 hijacking.

 

In the last hour, a loud explosion sent thick smoke billowing from the mall. The blast was followed by other smaller detonations and volleys of gunfire but there was no indication of the fate of people whom the authorities say are being held by 10 to 15 Islamist gunmen who took the complex by storm on Saturday.

- Kenya's Interior Minister Joseph Ole Lenku said two Islamic extremists were killed on Monday. Meanwhile, Kenya Chief of Defense forces General Julius Karangi said he believes the attackers are "a multinational collection from all over the world".

 

- A former US General has said that America was considering to hit al Shabab militants' in Kenya by "refining target lists". Former Army Vice Chief of Staff Gen. Peter Chiarelli said, "They're developing targets . . . and refining target lists, trying to fill in any gaps that we possibly have" on potential locations of al Shabaab strongholds in Kenya".

 

- An al Shabab military commander named Abu Omar, who claims to be in contact with the gunmen inside the mall, claimed that no women or Westerners were involved in the attack. Speaking to the BBC radio, he said the reports of Britons or Americans being involved were "baseless rumours". "To verify, we do not employ our sisters to carry out military attacks of this type," he added.

If the news of some of them being Somali diaspora kids is true, then it will make it harder for those qurbojoog with western passports to visit or live in Kenya. I hope some of them will be caught alive.

^ this info is new to me. balse, i'm now getting new info based on your info, relating to the toilets being blocked. apparently, the ''attackers'' were taking turns (max 10mins) to discharge the digested food they stole from the mall. water supply was also cut at the insistence of the Kenyan Interior Ministry for unspecified reasons.

 

fadlan hadii aad heysid war cusub so daa, ma garatay?

@ Gheele,Nakumatt is a supermarket.

 

@nuune: the siege has yet to end unfortunately. Sources tell me some of the heaviest frontline action was seen by Somali members of the GSU, Paras and regular KDF infantry.

being watching the Kenyan channels to get a better perspective.

 

couple of things to report.

 

1. Vice-President William Ruto, who was on trial for crimes against humanity at the ICC has been given bail. he addressed the nation. y'all should've seen his attempts to appear larger-than-life. in the most excellent ''Obamian'' of ways, he conveyed his message, sharing the podium but shadowed by many Kenyans of all types in show of solidarity, to the people of Kenya. he said ''we fill fight these terrorist and will go to their doorstep''. interesting, maha? (K24). this man is no stranger to hutu inspired interhamwe hate speech.

 

2. 45,863,887 KES has been raised via Safariacom's M-PESA for the victims of the attacks. (citizens TV)

 

3. AJE reported that Kenyan-Somalis have also pledged something. they ought to pledge to the 10,000+ fellow Somalis killed by the KDF, maimed by KDF and whose livelihood, the KDF has destroyed without remunerations.

fight fire with fire miyaa sheekadu ? one hopes the somali members of the security forces distinguish themselves and salvage what little good reputation we have left. the bad press AS has given us will take generations to get rid off
