Kenyan police thwart terror attack in border region
Wednesday May 24, 2023
Kenya has foiled a terrorist attack in its east border region with Somalia, police said Tuesday.
A security team seized six AK47 rifles, two Rocket Propelled Grenades, two grenades and other items during an operation on Monday in Garissa County, police spokesperson Resila Onyango said.
Police raided an al-Shabaab camp in the wake of reports that the terrorist group has been sending their members to Kenya over the past month to launch attacks.
The victory "is coming at a time when we are facing threats by the terrorists. The operation is ongoing," Onyango said.
The Somalia-based al-Shabaab terrorists have been attacking places in the region, especially in Mandera, Wajir and Garissa counties in eastern Kenya, after breaching security zones, which has left dozens of civilians and security officials dead and wounded.
