The enemy has been repulsed!
Suspected Al-Shabaab militants have attacked a Kenyan military camp in Kulbiyow, Lower Jubba, Somalia, some 18 kilometres from the Kenyan border.
The KDF base was attacked at 5am on Friday and the number of casualties remains unconfirmed.
“We are under massive attack and there is massive exchange of fire,” military spokesman Lt-Col Paul Njuguna told Nation.co.ke
Although the military spokesman did not offer finer details on the exchange, he said the Kenyan troops had been pinned down.
Al-Shabaab fighters, the Voice of America reports, drove a truck filled with explosives and detonated them inside the base, followed by heavy gunfire and an infantry attack.READ MORE
