On Sunday, 27th Dec 2020, Kenyan Special Forces KDF Soldiers stormed an al-Shabaab camp inside the Boni forest and killed the militants, destroying their hideouts in the aftermath of the operation.
The special forces soldiers recovered an assortment of items such as solar panels, radios, hand grenades, and several rounds of ammunition which were in the custody of the terrorists before the operation.
This comes after a week when al Shabaab militants staged an attack at the border patrol unit officers who were escorting passengers along the Gamba-Lamu road.
The militants were successfully repelled leading to the beefing up of security in the region. Kenya has been a victim of attacks by the al Shabaab militants for quite a long time now.
The previous deadly attacks by the terrorists involved the West Gate Shopping Mall, Garissa University College, and the latest Riverside attack. Kenya has been on the alert to curb such terrorist attacks.
During this festive season, people have been urged to prioritize their security and give any information about persons they suspect of mischievous activities to the relevant authorities.
