A day after an Alshabaab terrorist was killed, the terror group has launched a mega attack on a military base in the volatile region. The incident is said to have been followed up by sightings of terrorist elements around the military base who were spying the surrounding area.

According to a post by 'Modern Kenyan Corps' reported that the Astu Elram military base had been surrounded by Alshabaab gunmen. They stated that the base was under heavy artillery fire from outside the base. The military base is in the Southern part of Somalia region where the terrorists still maintain a heavy presence.
