Nigerian Air Force airstrikes inflicts “heavy casualties” on Boko Haram terrorists in Sambisa Forest, Northeast region – Defence Spokesperson

The Armed Forces of Nigeria on Monday said the Air Task Force (ATF) of Operation LAFIYA DOLE “inflicted heavy casualties” on Boko Haram Terrorists (BHTs) in the Sambisa Forest area of Borno State.

But the military was not specific on the number of terrorists killed or their facilities destroyed in the airstrikes.

But Coordinator, Defence Media Operations, Major General John Enenche, said in a statement that “this was achieved through multiple air strikes executed on 14 November 2020 at two locations – Gobara and the Sambisa ‘S’ Region – in the vicinity of the Forest that were being used by the BHTs as logistics bases as well as staging areas to launch attacks.

“Consequently, the ATF dispatched appropriate force packages of Nigerian Air Force (NAF) attack aircraft to engage the target areas. Several BHTs were spotted under the dense vegetation of the locations as the NAF jets took turns in attacking the targets, neutralizing some of them.

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