Terrorists in Somalia are resorting to using improvised explosive devices (IEDS) since they lack resources and ability to engage in conventional military warfare, these militants can’t face our forces in battle, David James.
An improvised explosive device targeting a Kenyan military convoy exploded and destroyed one KDF vehicle and killed an officer, intelligence sources report.
The IED attack took place along the Kenya Somali border at Gadondhawe which a strategic border transit point
IEDS will be the weapon of choice for terrorists since we have destroyed their supplies and supply chain routes, besides IEDs are cheap and readily available, Adds David James.
6 Military officers were injured in the incident, intelligence sources report.
Terrorism is a global vice, a challenge that is spiraling to new limits today.
Kenya’s National Intelligence Service NIS and the Kenya Defense Forces have a coordinated strategy is targeting and eliminating the terrorists and their bomb makers.
During the onset of KDF operations in Somalia KDF Military Intelligence spearheaded and operation that led to capturing and killing the Al-Shabaab terrorists bomb makers before they made IEDS.
A program between the agencies aims at uncovering and disarming Al-Shabaab terrorists weapons before they go off and rooting out and destroying bomb-making cells so they can’t produce more weapons.
