|Casualties and losses|
|1 wounded||2 killed|
The 2010 Kenya–Al-Shabaab border clash occurred on July 20, 2010, when gunmen from the Al-Shabaab group attacked a Kenyan border patrol along the border area in Liboi, Lagdera. There was a subsequent fierce exchange of fire between the two sides leading to the deaths of 2 militia and the wounding of one Kenyan officer. Hundreds of security personnel were later deployed to the border following the clash and because of continued fighting between two militia groups in the neighboring town of Dobley, Somalia. The Islamist outfit had previously claimed responsibility for a deadly suicide bombing in Uganda in July.
