The UPDF Mountain Division Commander, Maj. Gen Kayanja Muhanga has met with his DRC counterpart, the Commander of Operation Sukola Grand- Nord, Maj. Gen Camille Bombele, for a review of the ongoing joint UPDF and FARDC operations against the ADF in an operation code-named Shujaa.
The meeting was held at the joint tactical headquarters near River Semliki in the North Kivu province of DRC.
The two commanders observed that since the launch of the joint operations on November, 30 when four ADF camps were attacked by UPDF air and artillery, the ADF activities have been disrupted.
The commanders agreed on a joint operational plan to step up the operations in different sectors now that the terrorists are no longer encamped, having been dislodged from their former strongholds.
It was also noted during the review meeting that the attack on ADF has restored relative calm in the area, allowing civilians to resume socio-economic activities. END
