Kenyan Muslims Risk Their Lives to Warn 20 Christians of Attack by al-Shabaab Jihadists

In a show of solidarity, a group of Muslims warned a group of 20 construction workers – mostly Christians – about an impending attack by a jihadist fundamentalist group in Kutulo, Kenya.

According to Premier UK, a group of local Muslims were informed that a jihadist terror group – al-Shabaab – was planning an attack on “non-local Christian workers” building a government hospital in Kutulo. The attack was scheduled for July 21, and when the locals were made aware of the possible assault, they quickly informed the workers to leave the building site.

The Muslim locals helped the Christian workers evacuate the area before confronting the gunmen when they arrived.

“They confronted the gunmen who proceeded to the site and failed to get what they wanted. [The attackers] opened fire but no one was injured before they escaped,” north-eastern regional commissioner Mohamed Birik told media, according to Premier UK.

According to persecution watchdog Open Doors, the failed attack took place in Mandera County which is near the Kenya-Somalia border. Reportedly, in Somalia, most Christians conceal their faith out of fear of persecution.
