The Kenya Defence Forces on Wednesday evening said it has killed 49 al Shabaab fighters.
In a statement, the KDF said, its troops under AMISOM carried out an air strike on al shabaab camps at Hargeisayere and Minyonta in Jilib at 12.15pm on Tuesday.
Among those killed were five senior commanders, while 27 others were injured. KDF said two technical vehicles were also destroyed during the air strike.
“The two camps are important Al Shabaab logistics and operational bases which have been key transit points for militia movement to other areas.” KDF said in the statement.
This comes after the KDF on Monday released photos on an alleged rain on the militias in which it said more than 100 militiants in Somalia were killed following a bus attack in Mandera that claimed 28 lives.
