Somali, Kenyan officials discuss security in Gedo region

Somali and Kenyan officials held a meeting in El Wak town on Sunday night discussing the security situation of Gedo region following series of Al Shabaab cross-border attacks.

The two sides talked about the worsening security situation in the region and on ways to prevent Al Shabaab raids during the hour-long meeting, according to the sources.

The Kenyan officials participated in the conference recommended establishing a joint approach to enforce the security and fight against the Al Qaeda-linked Al Shabaab militants.

In the past few days, Al Shabaab has intensified ambush attacks against the military convoys of Somali military and the Kenyan Defense Force [KDF] in Gedo province.

Kenya has suffered deadly attacks since it sent troops to neighboring Somalia in mid-2011, to pursue Al Shabaab fighters after a string of kidnappings and raids in its soil.
