Islamist terrorists claim that two Cuban slave doctors kidnapped by them in 2019 have been killed in a bombing raid. The pair have been working as doctors for their captors in Kenya ever since they were kidnapped. In all this time Castro, Inc. did nothing to ransom or rescue them. Now, according to unconfirmed reports, these doubly-enslaved Cubans have probably lost their lives.

Islamist militia Al Shabab assured this Saturday in a communication on Telegram that the Cuban doctors Landy Rodríguez Hernández and the general medicine specialist Assel Herrera Correa, kidnapped in Kenya in 2019, died in an attack that American drones carried out on February 15, a report that the Cuban authorities do not confirm.

The group affiliated with the Al Qaeda network since 2012 claimed that the Cubans died after an air attack in Middle Jubba, where doctors were performing “community services.”

Throughout their years of captivity, little or nothing was known about the whereabouts or fate of the Cuban doctors, except for sporadic statements from the governments of Cuba and Kenya.

The most recent statement published by the United States Africa Command (AFRICOM) is dated earlier than the one reported by the terrorist militia. The note released on February 14 by the US force intended to counter security threats and respond to humanitarian crises in African countries, states that they carried out a collective self-defense air attack with five clashes against the terrorist group Al Shabaab on February 9. February.

At the request of the Federal Government of Somalia, U.S. Africa Command conducted a collective self-defense airstrike with five engagements against the al Shabaab terrorist group on Feb. 9. “The collective self-defense airstrike occurred in a remote area in the vicinity of Yaq Dabel, Somalia. Initial post-strike assessment indicates that the US airstrike killed two Al Shabaab terrorists and that no civilians were injured,” it added. .

In Cuba, a relative of the doctors who preferred not to be identified because it was an extremely delicate matter, confirmed to Martí Noticias that they had been contacted by senior officials.

“We are desperate. The Minister of Health called us to tell us that there was a bombing and that it is possible that they were dead, but nothing has been confirmed,” the source said.

The Cuban government issued a statement in which they assured that “unofficial” sources reported the deaths of the doctors.

“So far, this information has not been confirmed. In this regard, the Cuban authorities remain in permanent communication with their Kenyan and Somali counterparts,” indicates the c

  1. Relevant US sources need to confirm or deny what the terrorists claim, since the idea is obviously to blame the deaths on a US attack–which would benefit both the terrorists and Cuba.

    While all sides are dubious, this whole affair never made much sense. I suspect the terrorists misjudged what they could get for the hostages, which in reality was nothing. The $1.5M ransom they asked for was rejected by Kenya, which was already paying a pretty penny for the rent-a-docs, and the Castronoids were never going to fork over that money, since their goal was strictly to profit, not take a loss.

    It’s curious that, given Cuba’s excellent relations with the Muslim world and anti-Western elements in general, it never managed to get the hostages released despite several years to do it. Of course, we don’t know what went on behind the scenes, or even if Havana really tried to resolve this beyond going through the motions. After all, what’s two slaves more or less in the grand scheme of multinational slave trafficking?

  2. What’s very striking is the difference between Havana’s massive campaign to recover its 5 convicted spies from the US (thanks, Obama) and its FAR more low-key, not to say pro forma efforts to free these doctors.
