Kenya Defense Forces (KDF) operating under African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) on Wednesday killed three Al-Qaeda linked Al-Shabaab terrorists and captured one in a gunfight in Somali border town of Bura Hache.
According to the Defense ministry, KDF troops, who are part of the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM), confiscated two AK 47 rifles, one SLR rifle and assorted ammunition.
The incident took place at about 2.00 p.m. as the Kenya Defense Forces (KDF) soldiers were patrolling the area in the northern sector.
KDF soldiers remain vigilant and relentlessly continue to pursue the terrorists to their hideouts, to ensure peace and security in Kenya and Somalia is restored.
Early in January, KDF reported killing seven Al-Shabaab militants and wounding an unknown number in an operation in southern Somalia. The military seized 9 AK-47 rifles, 10 magazines, two rocket-propelled grenade launchers and three grenades from the militants.
