Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) repulsed an attack by Al-Shabaab terrorists at a Special Forces Camp in Kutulo, Wajir County commander has confirmed.
The attackers reportedly attempted to breach into the Army camp at around 8 pm Thursday but were met with resistance from the Special Forces who had intelligence of a possible attack.
The encounter resulted in a one and a half hours gun battle that ended with the assailants retreating.
“We are waiting for confirmation of the extent of the damage and also if there were any casualties.”
Early last month, the Al-Qaeda linked Al-Shabaab destroyed a mast belonging to telecommunications firm Safaricom, paralyzing communication in the area.
