The Kenya Defence Forces have banned any aircrafts from landing at Baidoa in Somalia.
The ban comes after it emerged that the Al Shaabab militants had received three consignments of weapons to boost their defence as the Kenyan troops intensify their pursuit for the militia.
In a statement Military Spokesman Major Emmanuel Chirchir said that owners of any unauthorized aircraft flying over the region will be considered a threat.
Major Chirchir further warned that any large movement of loaded donkeys will be considered as Al Shabaab activity.
Meanwhile, the Kenya Navy on Wednesday evening intercepted and sunk a vessel carrying 18 Al Shaabab fighters killing all on board.
The vessel is said to have been transporting fuel to Kuday area.
