Kenya troops on Monday launched manhunt operations in their border along Somalia after dozens of Al-shabaab fighters reportedly crossed over border to Kenya.
Kenyan military helicopters and border patrol troops have jointly undertaken the operation which is aimed to crack down Al-shabaab militants.
A police spokesman has said that Kenyan intelligence community has received alerts after Al-shabaab sneaked into Somali region to plan attacks against the gov’t.
He said several Al-shabab suspects have been nabbed in the early hours of the crackdown which is also targeting residents in Dhobley , Gaarisa and Wajeer.
Reports say that Kenyans bombarded in areas near the Somali borders as part of their search.
Al-shabaab militants have set up bases in Kenya and slaughtered dozens of Kenyans in their recent attacks on the coastal town of Lamu.
Kenya believes that some politicians are supporting the group to at least terrorize in forthcoming presidential election which is set to occur on August this year.
