Kenya's January 2016 Battle with Al-Shabaab

The International Peace Institute published in July 2016 an account titled "The Battle at El Adde: The Kenya Defense Forces, al-Shabaab, and Unanswered Questions" by Paul Williams, George Washington University.

In January 2016, al-Shabaab fighters attacked and overran an AMISOM forward operating base garrisoned by Kenya Defense Force troops from the 9th Rifle Battalion. The battle at El Adde probably represented the largest loss of life that AMISOM has suffered in a single battle. This account details the battle.
