U.S. Strongly Condemns Attack Against Kenyan Troops
The United States strongly condemns the al-Shabaab terrorist attack today against Kenyan troops that were operating under the African Union Mission in Somalia – AMISOM as you guys know it – and Somali national army troops that were stationed in el-Ade, the Gedo region of Somalia. We extend our deepest condolences to the families of all the soldiers killed. And of course, we wish a speedy and quick recovery to those who were injured.
The United States remains fully committed to providing assistance to the Government of Kenya, the Government of Somalia, and our AMISOM – and AMISOM partners to combat terrorism, violent extremism, and to enhance security within Somalia, Kenya, and the region.
