Somali Militants Claim Kenya Attack Retaliation For Trump's Jerusalem Policy

According to a report by Reuters, on Wednesday, the Somali militant group al Shabaab said that they had launched a deadly attack on an upscale Kenyan hotel and business complex in retaliation for US President Donald Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as the Israeli capital.

Reuters reports that a two page statement from Al Shabaab reads, "The Mujahideen (holy warriors) carried out this operation ... (as) a response to the witless remarks of U.S. president, Donald Trump, and his declaration of Al-Quds (Jerusalem) as the capital of Israel.”
