06 Janvier, 2020, 15:57 | Auteur: Anatole Charbonneau

L'armée kényane et les forces de l'Africom ont repoussé l'attaque des Shebab, qui s'est déroulée dimanche à l'aube sur une base militaire américano-kényane à Lamu, dans le sud-est du Kenya.

Le porte-parole de l'armée kényane, le colonel Paul Njuguna, a déclaré dans un communiqué qu'"il y a eu une tentative à 05H30 pour briser la sécurité sur la piste aérienne de Manda".

" La tentative de (faire une) brèche a été repoussée avec succès".

"La police a fait savoir que la piste d'atterrissage utilisée par la marine américaine avait été détruite et que des avions avaient été brûlés". "Après cette tentative infructueuse, un incendie s'est déclaré touchant des réservoirs de carburant situés sur la piste d'atterrissage". "L'incendie a été maîtrisé", a-t-il dit, sans préciser si cette attaque avait fait des victimes.

Le Commandement des États-Unis pour l'Afrique a dressé le bilan de l'attaque des islamistes chebabs contre une base militaire où stationnent des forces américaines et kenyanes à Lamu, dans le nord du Kenya. L'AFRICOM a également mentionné des dégâts matériels.

En outre, deux membres du Pentagone ont été blessés. "Certains avions et véhicules appartenant aux Etats-Unis ont été brûlés", a déclaré un responsable de la police sous couvert d'anonymat. Durant l'attaque, il y a eu des "tirs indirects et à l'arme légère", selon le communiqué. "La base abrite des centaines de militaires américains et de soldats kenyans et constitue l'une des nombreuses rampes de lancement de la croisade américaine contre l'islam dans la région", ajoute le communiqué.

This is the shocking moment that the landing gear of a plane sparked with flames before completely falling off during take-off. The passengers on board draw a sharp intake of breath as it shoots past the window and the video ends shortly after.

Le groupe a ajouté que cette attaque s'inscrit dans le cadre de sa campagne intitulée "Al-Quds (Jérusalem) ne sera jamais judaïsée" - un terme qu'il a utilisé pour la première fois lors d'une attaque contre le complexe hôtelier haut de gamme Dusit à Nairobi en janvier 2019, qui a fait 21 morts.

L'AFRICOM a accusé les shebab de donner de fausses informations dans les médias. "C'est une pratique courante pour cette organisation terroriste ". Al-Shaabab a revendiqué la responsabilité de l'incident.

Malgré les coûteux efforts internationaux pour les vaincre, les shebab ont mené le 28 décembre dernier l'une des attaques les plus meurtrières de la décennie en Somalie, causant 81 morts dans l'explosion d'un véhicule piégé à Mogadiscio.

Les attaques des shebab montrent leur capacité à infliger des dommages importants en Somalie et dans la région, malgré la perte de contrôle des principales zones urbaines de la Somalie.

Chassés de Mogadiscio en 2011, ils ont perdu l'essentiel de leurs bastions.
