The panel, which monitors sanctions on Somalia, said it received reports of KDF attacks on twelve towers operated by Hormuud Telecom, a Mogadishu-based provider, since 2017, almost all in Gedo along Kenya's northernmost border with Somalia. A security guard and his relative died in July 2018 in an alleged KDF shelling on a Hormuud station, the report added. The KDF denied any involvement in the attacks during a meeting with the UN experts, the report noted.
