Somalia based insurgents al-Shabaab Friday launched an attack on Uganda national army base in Barawe.
Army spokesperson Brig Richard Karemire said the UPDF in Barawe this morning foiled an attempted Al Shabab attack on its position.
He said the forces in ambush successfully blew two enemy vehicles loaded with dangerous explosives.
“No soldier was injured in the fight and high alert is being maintained,” Karemire noted.
UPDF was part of the mission that liberated Jannale from the terrorists in March.
