A United States of America engineered airstrike on Monday left yet another Al-Shabaab commander dead, barely 20 hours after a similar strike.
The strike was waged within Jilib town in Southern Somalia, not far from where two other commanders were killed on Sunday morning, reports have emerged.
"United States strike kills Al-Shabaab militant in Jilib area, southern Somalia on Monday - @USAfricaCommand," tweeted VOA journalist Harun Maruf.
The news about the significant progress were communicated on Tuesday. Jilib town has been under Al-Shabaab militants for years now.
On Sunday, a similar strike in the region killed two commanders but the US, a key partner of KDF, did not immediately release details of the affected terrorists.
"US military conducted two new airstrikes in Jilib town area, Middle Jubba region on June 16 killing two Al-Shabaab militants - @USAfricaCommand. Local sources say one of the individuals targetted was a senior militant official," reported Harun Maruf, VOA journalist.
Closer at home, KDF soldiers on Saturday managed to repulse an attack waged by the Al-Shabaab at a border patrol base in Garissa.
"Our officers effectively engaged [the suspected Al-Shabaab militants] and with quick reinforcement from Special Forces, [they] were repulsed," said NPS communications director Charles Wahong'o.
Mr Wahong'o said all police officers were safe and that a multi-agency team was pursuing the attackers.
"Security agencies remain on high alert to suppress and counter Al-Shabaab's heightened activity along the border with Somalia," he said.
