Shabaab Claims Nairobi Attack Retaliation for Trump Jerusalem Move

W460

The al-Shabaab jihadist group said Wednesday it carried out the deadly attack on a Nairobi hotel and office complex in retaliation for U.S. President Donald Trump's declaration of Jerusalem as Israel's capital, the SITE monitoring group said.

The group said in a statement picked up by SITE that its fighters stormed the DusitD2 complex on instructions by al-Qaida leader Ayman al-Zawahiri.

"It is a response to the witless remarks of the U.S. president, Donald Trump, and his declaration of Al-Quds (Jerusalem) as the capital of Israel."
