Balad Hawo Residence Clash With KDF Over “Annexation”

Residents of the border town of Beledhawo in Gedo region clashed withe Kenya Defence Forces troops in protests against alle'ged annexation of Somalia land. The KDF had reportedly moved from the Kenyan town of Mandera to demarcate a fence which Beledhawo residents claim it's way inside Somalia land. "KDF were putting up a fence beyond Kenya border and the residents moved in throwing stones and protesting" Hashim Mahmoud a Mandera resident told Radio Dalsan. KDF tanks moved in deeper into Beledhawo to contain the rowdy protesting residents. Kenya has recently been demarcating a fence along the border with neighbouring Somalia as one of the measures to deal with the menace of AlShabaab.
