An excerpt from DeWelt:
In the tweet it goes on to say: “Some youngsters oppose the death, even if they were told not to be captured alive, it will be a long ordeal in # Westgate..” In another Tweet called al-Shabab name of the assassin, there should be eight.

Israeli security experts have intervened in the fight against Somali terrorists who have continued being entrenched in the Westgate Shopping Center in Nairobi with several hostages. The rebels of the radical Islamist militia al-Shabab had stormed the building armed with machine guns and hand grenades on Saturday afternoon.
According to the Red Cross, at least 68 people were killed and 175 were injured. So far, the death of an attacker was confirmed. According to information of the “world” the Israeli security forces, however, were not actively involved in a deployment of the Kenyan armed forces to rescue the hostages.
The Israelis should play a strategic advisory capacity based on their experience behind the scenes, said security sources. Many shops owners in the mall are Israeli. If there is an active intervention by the Israelis, it would be the first combat mission abroad by Israeli special forces against a militia with Al Qaeda ties.

Even FBI specialists were available locally. They wore protective vests and rubber gloves. Without foreign specialists the Kenyan forces do not seem to be able to Lord. In 2011, Kenya and Israel had signed a cooperation agreement for the anti-terrorist struggle.
The agreement includes cooperation at technical level. It was related to “a new thrust” of the cooperation between Israel and African countries that were threatened by radical Islam, the Israeli newspaper “Haaretz” commented at the time.
