Residents living in Dhoblay town in Lower Jubba region say that many Kenyan helicopters were seen on Thursday deploying troops into an area called Har-Haar, just 7 Km away the border between Somalia and Kenya to join African Union forces known as AMISOM that are currently propping up a Transitional Government in Mogadishu.

Some reports said Kenya plans these new forces to boost and join prior army who are struggling to liberate all Al-shabab-held regions in southwestern Somalia, especially Badade and Afmadow, frontline towns.

Kenyan soldiers illegally entered into the neighboring conflict-ravaged Somalia on 16 October last year 2011, in pretext to combat Al-Shabaab, the Al-Qaeda-linked rebel group, whom Nairobi blames for kidnapping and killings tourists and aid workers in its soil. U.S. Keeps Wary Eye on Kenya
