KDF strike leaves 15 Shabaab militants dead

Fifteen Al Shabaab militants were killed on Monday when Kenyan soldiers raided their camp deep inside Somalia.

They were felled at an area known as Catamaa, about 100 kilometres from the Kenyan border town of Elwak.

Colonel Joseph Owuoth, who issued a statement from the Kenyan Military headquarters in Nairobi, said the soldiers used artillery and mortar fire to destroy the camp.

“The Kenya Defence Forces wishes to assure the public that operations against the Al Shabaab will continue until all the terrorists are eliminated to ensure that the locals continue to enjoy peace and security,” Owuoth said.

Many more militants are believed to have escaped with injuries but there were no casualties on the Kenyan side.

Al Shabaab has fought to overthrow the internationally-backed government in Mogadishu since 2007, but turned its sights on Kenya when the army was sent into Somalia in 2011 to fight the Islamic insurgents.

Since then, the militants have targeted civilians in different parts of Kenya, including a dramatic assault on Nairobi’s Westgate shopping mall in 2013 in which at least 67 people were killed.
