Flavia Byekwaso, the UPDF spokesperson has confirmed that a UPDF soldier sustained injuries in a deadly gun battle with Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) insurgents in North Kivu, Eastern DRC.

According to a joint statement by DRC armed forces and UPDF, the incident occurred on Monday as the forces attacked an ADF splinter force South West of Kambi Ya Yua, killing two terrorists and capturing one PK machine gun with 300 rounds of live ammunition.

“Unfortunately, one UPDF soldier got injured, has stabilized, and is out of danger,” read a statement in part. The soldier is the first reported UPDF casualty since DRC and Uganda launched military strikes against the IS-linked fighters on November 30.

Also, UPDF announced that the construction and rehabilitation of security roads to facilitate Operation Shujaa was completed last week.
