A day that will forever be etched in Al Shabaab history as their day of reckoning. What Al Shabaab had expected to be an easy overrunning of the KDF camp in Hosingow turned out to be their Waterloo. There were between 800 and 1,000 Al Shabaab fighters. Many more bodies had been dragged away by the retreating Al Shabaab fighters, who rarely abandon their dead. After the Hosingow attack, it took the Al Shabaab a very long time to attempt a prodding attack on any KDF camp.
