I HIGHLIGHTS/KEY PRIORITIES

  • Increased attacks on civilian and police targets have been reported in Kenya this week, as the Kenya military incursion in southern Somalia continues.

  • Humanitarian operations at Dadaab refugee camps and drought-affected areas of northeastern Kenya have been increasingly restricted, and in some cases halted, due to insecurity and damaged roads resulting from the ongoing heavy rains.

  • In Somalia, civilians have started moving out of their homes following declarations that Al-Shabaab strongholds in southern Somalia will face attacks.

  • A cholera outbreak has been confirmed in Djibouti.
