Somalia Islamic militantsThe Islamic terrorist group Al-Shabaab is waging jihad again as three Christian teachers have been killed in Kenya.

The deadly ambush by the Somali-based terror group – one of Al-Qaeda's allies – took place on February 16, and William Stark of International Christian Concern (ICC) says that the jihadists are setting their sights on Christians.

"Three teachers were killed in Wajir, Kenya, which is right along the border of Kenya and Somalia,” Stark announced. “It's presumed to have been perpetrated by Al-Shabaab because it is very similar to numerous attacks that Al-Shabaab has claimed responsibility for – going back, I think, three or four years now. It's just part of this pattern of violence that's affecting Christians in Kenya's eastern border."

Stark told OneNewsNow that it is troubling that the terrorist group constantly crosses the Kenyan border in order to persecute and kill Christians.

"Unfortunately, as I said, this isn't the first time this has happened,” Stark stressed. “It's actually become more of a trend in Eastern Kenya – so it's actually quite disturbing."

ICC is asking for prayer for the families of the deceased and for peace to come to a region that has seen increased violence toward Christians who are just trying to survive. 

The Persecution watchdog group is also urging the government to take effective action to stop the senseless killing of so many Christians in Kenya at the hands of Islamic militants.
