An airstrike by a Kenyan warplane on two towns in Somalia reportedly killed a mother and her child, reports said on Monday.

According to Reuters, Thursday’s strike on the Gedo area in Somalia’s semi-autonomous state of Jubbaland also left at least six people with injuries.

The Somali government, in a statement on Friday, condemned what it called “indiscriminate airstrikes” in El Ade and Hisa-u-Gur towns carried out by Kenyan forces.

It added that the airstrikes had resulted in the death and injury of civilians including women and children but gave no specific details about the victims.


Reuters reported that the deceased husband, Ali Ahmed Sheikh, said Reuters on Monday that he had been out of the house when the warplane struck his family home in El Ade and that of a neighbour on Thursday night.

“I found my house destroyed, my wife Sahra Aden and the baby she suckled dead,” Sheikh told Reuters from Erdogan Hospital in the Somali capital Mogadishu.

He was there attending to his children – two boys and two girls – who were injured in the attack.
