NAF jets kills “several” Boko Haram Terrorists, destroys their structures in Sambisa forest, Northeast Nigeria

The Armed Forces of Nigeria on Thursday said the Air Task Force (ATF) of Operation LAFIYA DOLE killed “several” Boko Haram Terrorists (BHTs) and destroyed their structures in Sambisa forest, North East of the country.

Coordinator, Defence Media Operations, Major General John Enenche, said in a statement that “the latest of these campaigns was achieved through air strikes executed on 10 November 2020 at Njimia and Dure in the Sambisa Forest area of Borno State.

“The attacks, which resulted in massive damage to the BHTs’ structures as well as the neutralization of several of their fighters, were conducted after series of aerial surveillance missions showed resurgence of activities in the 2 locations.

“Consequently, the ATF dispatched appropriate force packages of Nigerian Air Force (NAF) attack aircraft to engage the locations.

“The NAF jets scored devastating hits in their successive bomb and rocket runs resulting in the destruction of the terrorists’ structures and neutralization of several BHTs.

“The Armed Forces of Nigeria will not relent until all enemies of the Nation are neutralised and normalcy is restored to all troubled zones.”
