Al Qaeda affiliate al-Shabaab has claimed the attack on a US base in Kenya on Sunday morning local time.
The US base known as Camp Simba is located in Lamu county, near Kenya’s border with Somalia.
Al-Shabaab said the base was used by both American and Kenyan military personnel, and that US military equipment was “destroyed,” according to a statement released by the terror group Sunday.
Al-Shabaab provided no evidence to support the claims. It wasn’t immediately clear if there were any casualties.
The Somali government, in coordination with US Africa Command, has conducted several retaliatory airstrikes on al-Shabaab targets.
