Gambian troops have been activated after Senegalese troops illegally entered The Gambia through the Jarra border.

Videos showing Senegalese troops clashing with Gambian civilians in the border village of Sare Omar near Badumeh, Jarra emerged on social media on Wednesday.

The act has sparked outrage among members of the public.

The Fatu Network understands the commander of Farafenni Barracks Lieutenant Colonel Timoty Sanyang has sent a patrol team to Jarra.

In March, Senegalese gendarmerie stormed into The Gambia and kidnapped a Gambian after shooting him in the hand.

In December last year, a scuffle erupted between Gambian and Senegalese troops in Darsilami after the latter attempted to enter The Gambia.
