Garissa residents have been trying to resist the military operation, compelling the troops to fire at the protesters.

The KRCS team says it set up a blood donation area for the public to donate blood for the casualties who have different injuries including gunshot injuries.

“This morning, KRCS rescued four males, four females and two children, eight of them being gunshot casualties,” Kenya Red Cross in a statement on Tuesday.

The attack was carried out at around 12:30pm.

5 soldiers, who were part of a KDF contingent on transit to Sector II in Somalia for AMISOM duties, were aboard a truck which later developed a puncture.

In the process of unbolting the punctured tire, a group of gunmen attacked three KDF personnel, shooting them at pointblank range.

The Kenya army confirmed that three of the soldiers succumbed to the injuries.

“It was impossible for the other two to return fire immediately without causing collateral damage.”

The incident came just a day after an explosive was hurled at minibus in Eastleigh, killing ten.

Kenya’s interior security has since been under scrutiny, with observers saying it could be the “sick man” of the East African region.

The army also said investigations to flush out the criminals are underway by the Kenya Police and KDF.
