Al-Shabaab operatives in Nairobi are making headway in their efforts to stymie Kenya’s efforts to stablize Somalia through a military incursion deep inside Somalia.
Intelligence gathered by Strategic confirms presence of terrorist agents in Nairobi Kenya where they planned and carried out the Monday bombing on the Moi Avenue Assanads buildings.
After successfully setting up the improvised explosive device using petrol and fertilizers and its control system, the terrorists set off the bomb and the Amniyatt Mukhabarat agents were present to evaluate and audit the success of the explosion.
Intelligence confirmed by our analysts, Intel-Center and Associated Press show that the Al-Shabaab agents posed as journalists and interviewed the bomb survivors.
The objective was to audit the views of these victims and identify gray areas in the operation with a view to sharpen/refine the next attack to meet objective successfully.
Al-Shabaab wants to identify what they can do to achieve their objectives and talking to people is one way of identifying the effectiveness of an operation.
The agents posed as journalist further camouflaging their identity and ensuring they are not suspicious to any level that can prompt police or intelligence operatives detection.
Strategic identifies the strategy deployed by Al-Shabaab as using low profile operations hence achieving deterrent capability and camouflaging their activities with normalcy in public routines
These operations can be easily detected by government agents and subverted using effective counter intelligence activity.
