Prime Minister Raila Odinga at his office met with TFG officials led by Somalia'> Somalia Prime Minister Abdiweli Mohamed Ali, who said Al Shabaab must be destroyed all the way to the strategic port of Kismayu. This came just a week after President Sheikh Sharif Ahmed of Somalia'> Somalia termed as "inappropriate" the ongoing offensive by the Kenya Defence Force, and accused Nairobi of violating his countryâs sovereignty.
Mondayâs public mending of fences in the full glare of the media was strengthened by the presence of Somalia'> Somaliaâs Defence Minister Hussein Arab Isse, Interior Minister Abdisamad Moalin Mohamud and General Abdulkarim Dini, commander of TFG forces.
As the Somali and Kenyan delegates were meeting, military spokesperson Major Emmanuel Chirchir said a Kenya Air Force jet attacked an Al Shabaab camp in the village of Jilib on Saturday, killing 10 insurgents and wounding 47.
He dismissed claims by humanitarian agency, Medecins Sans Frontieres (Doctors Without Borders or MSF), in Marere, Lower Juba, of an attack on an Internally Displaced Persons camp that allegedly killed three civilians and injuring 52.
"We wish to clarify that the incident at the IDP camp developed following enemy actions in the area," said Major Chirchir.
But Major Chirchir blamed the deaths and injuries in the camp on Al Shabaab who fled into the IDP camp aboard a burning "technical battle wagon mounted with a ZSU 2-3 anti-aircraft gun".
