Since the beginning of 2019, al-Shabaab has been active with several high-profile attacks, chief among them the DusitD2 attack. In January, three al-Shabaab members detonated a VBIED in front of the business complex and hotel in an affluent Nairobi neighborhood before entering the facility and killing over 20 people.
In the first part of this video, a series of mid-day assassinations are highlighted, followed by multiple IED attacks. Several AMISON and KDF vehicles are hit with IEDs equipped with pressure plate triggers.
At the end of the video, the al-Shabaab leader warns Somalis not to work with the “unbelievers” or face severe punishment.
