US AIRSTRIKES KILL 62 PEOPLE IN COASTAL SOMALI TOWN

SOURCE: ANTI MEDIA

(ANTIWAR.COM— Over the weekend, US warplanes carried out at least six airstrikes against the coastal town of Gandarsh, Somalia. US African Command (Africom)says 62 people were killed in the strikes, and all were “terrorists” from al-Shabaab.
 

34 people were killed on Saturday, and 28 more on Sunday. The identities of the slain are not clear, and there is no way to verify Africom’s claims. This is, however, standard operating procedure for them, to both label all slain as militants, and to say they don’t think any civilians were killed or wounded.

This often doesn’t remain the case, however. When the US is striking a large number of people inside a populated area, it’s very unusual not to have some civilians killed along the way. Yet in remote places like Somalia, it often takes days to find that out.

 

In the meantime, the Pentagon has virtually total control over the narrative, and sticks to formulaic releases meant to spin the strikes as legal, claiming they preempted a plot, without providing any evidence of such a plot.

In coordination with the Federal Government of Somalia, the US conducted an air strike against Al-Shabaab obliterating a vehicle, US Africa Command (AFRICOM) said in a press release.

On Sunday, the U.S. military carried out an airstrike in Somalia against al-Qaeda-linked terror group al-Shabaab, U.S. officials said on Monday, as reported by Reuters. Officials did not specify whether it was a drone strike, and the Pentagon has not disclosed any additional information about the strike. The U.S. has been drone-striking Somalia for some time now, a policy Barack Obama escalated.

Well we know where the survivors will go, straight into the migration pact. coming soon to a neighbourhood near you. They will kill innocent citizens and run amok in your streets like they did in my city. Be ready for them !! ( - fortunately on the shore we got a dumping of Ethiopians, and all those ones did was put on hats and went to church, not so lucky on the other side of town though )
