Several militants escaped with serious injuries.
"One Rocket Propelled Grenade (RPG) launcher, several assault weapons, assorted ammunitions as well as personal effects were recovered during the operations," reads the report.
KDF has vowed to intensify their operations along Kenya-Somali border in a bid to weed out Alshabab militants.
The militants have been giving residebrs residing along the border a hard time while going about their businesses.
From killing innocent people to bringing down communication mast, insecurity has been a major cause of concern in the region for over the past years.
KDF soldiers have been fighting with every fibre of their being to ensure that there is tranquillity in the region.
The government on the other hand has been playing a crucial role by deploying troops to the region in an effort to put an end to this insecurity issue.
