(RoyalPatriot.com )- For information that results in the capture of individuals involved in the 2020 terrorist assault in Kenya’s Manda Bay Airfield, which claimed the lives of three Americans, the U.S. Department of State is offering a $10 million reward.
The attack on the airstrip, a part of a Kenyan Defense Forces military base used by American forces to train and support their East African allies in counterterrorism, was carried out on January 5 by the al-Qaeda-affiliated terror group al-Shabaab.
The attack claimed the lives of two American Department of Defense (DoD) contractors, Bruce Triplett and Dustin Harrison, and U.S. Army Specialist Henry Mayfield Jr. Additionally hurt were a Kenyan soldier, a third DoD contractor, and two more U.S. service members.
Six American aircraft, one Kenyan aircraft, and some vehicles were also destroyed in the attack.
Following the attack, Al-Shabaab issued a video in which they claimed credit.
The leader of an al-Shabaab unit that has carried out terrorist attacks in Kenya and Somalia, Maalim Ayman, or anyone else connected to the 2020 attack, is wanted by the state department, which announced in a press release on Jan. 5 that it is offering a reward for information that results in his capture or conviction in any nation.
According to the state department, Ayman was in charge of organizing the 2020 attack. As a result, in November of that same year, he was named a Specially Designated Global Terrorist (SDGT).
Since March 2008, al-Shabaab has been listed as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist (SDGT) and a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO).
Al-Shabaab, which has its headquarters in East Africa, is one of al-Qaida’s most deadly affiliates, according to the department. It has carried out multiple terrorist assaults in Kenya, Somalia, and surrounding nations, killing thousands of people, including Americans.
The terrorist organization is still preparing to carry out terrorist attacks against the United States, American interests abroad, and international allies.
