By the time the Shabab were done, portions of the airfield were burning and three Americans were dead.Hery RAJAONARIMAMPIANINA : "Vive Madagascar francophone !"
Surprised by the attack, American commandos took around an hour to respond. Many of the local Kenyan forces, assigned to defend the base, hid in the grass while other American troops and support staff were corralled into tents, with little protection, to wait out the battle.
It would require hours to evacuate one of the wounded to a military hospital in Djibouti, roughly 1, miles away. The brazen assault at Manda Baya sleepy seaside base near the Somali border, on Jan.
But the storming of an airfield used by the American military so alarmed the Pentagon that it immediately sent about troops from the st Airborne Division to establish security at the base. But the deaths of the three Americans — one Army soldier and two Pentagon contractors — marked the largest number of United States military-related fatalities in Africa since four soldiers were killed in an ambush in Niger in October The deaths also signify a grim expansion of the campaign waged by the United States against the Shabab — often confined to Somalia, but in this case spilling over into Kenya despite an escalating American air campaign in the region.
Kenya is a new addition to the list of countries where Americans have been killed in combat since the attacks of Sept. The attack is raising new and complex questions about the enduring American military mission on the continent, where more than 5, troops now serve, especially as the Pentagon weighs the potential withdrawal of hundreds of forces from West Africa to better counter threats from Russia and China.
A Pentagon proposal to reduce the American military footprint in Africa drew sharp criticism last week from senior lawmakers of both parties, including Senator Lindsey Graham, a South Carolina Republican who is a close adviser to President Trump.
This article is based on interviews with a dozen American military officials or other people who have been briefed on the attack. Several spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss aspects of a security failure that is now under investigation. Early on the morning of Jan. They throttled down their engines, according to one person familiar with the attack.
The two men reported that they saw animals darting across the runway. They were wrong.
As the twin-propeller Beechcraft, loaded with sensors and video equipment for surveillance, began to taxi, the Shabab fighters fired a rocket-propelled grenade into the plane, killing Mr. Harrison and Mr.
With the plane on fire, a third contractor, badly burned in the rear of the aircraft, crawled out to safety. The Shabab fighters were not done. In the ensuing chaos, they made quick work of a significant portion of the American fleet of aircraft — a mix of six surveillance aircraft and medical evacuation helicopters on the ground at the time.
The Shabab fighters also destroyed a fuel storage area, rendering the airfield next to useless. The attack most likely cost the Pentagon millions of dollars in damages. Specialist Henry Mayfield Jr. His colleague inside the truck, another American, escaped and hid in the grass to avoid the insurgents. He was found hours later. Manda Bay is at the southern edge of an archipelago of American outposts used in the fight against the Shabab in East Africa. It took about eight hours to fly the burned contractor to Djibouti for hospital-level care, according to the person familiar with the attack, underscoring a recurring vulnerability for American personnel spread across the continent.
Two American service members were also wounded in the attack. While parts of the airfield burned and some Americans who were there returned fire, roughly a dozen members of a Marine Special Operations team from Third Marine Raider Battalion based at Camp Lejeune, N. But since the team was at Camp Simba, an American enclave roughly a mile from the airfield, the insurgents had ample time to disperse.
At the center of the hourslong gun battle is the risky dependence of American forces on their local counterparts, especially when it comes to base security.
The battle bore striking similarity to an attack in Afghanistan in March when Taliban fighters managed to slip onto a sprawling base in southern Helmand Province with help from Afghan troops, and quickly threatened a small American Marine base inside the perimeter of the larger Afghan facility. At Manda Bay, where American forces have a smaller presence, the troops rely largely on the Kenyans to protect the airfield. The performance of the Kenyan security forces during and after the battle frustrated American officials.
At one point, the Kenyans announced that they had captured six of the attackers, but they all turned out to be bystanders and were released. There are about American soldiers, airmen, sailors and Marines, as well as about Pentagon civilian employees and contractors, in Kenya helping train and assist local forces. A large majority of them work at Manda Bay, according to military officials.Previously he served as Minister of Finance under President Andry Rajoelinaand he was the Rajoelina political movement's candidate in the presidential election.
