‘Dozens’ of ISWAP terrorists killed by NAF airstrikes at Doron Naira, on the fringes of Lake Chad, says Defence Spokesperson

The Armed Forces of Nigeria said that dozens of Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP) terrorists killed by the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) airstrikes at Doron Naira, on the fringes of Lake Chad in Borno State.

Coordinator, Defence Media Operations, Major General John Enenche, said in a statement on Thursday that “this was achieved through air strikes executed on 24 November 2020 after series of Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions indicated that the location was used as the staging area from where the terrorists launched recent attacks against friendly locations in and around Baga.

“The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) fighter jets and helicopter gunships, dispatched by the Air Task Force to the location, took turns in engaging the target area, hitting the terrorists in their hiding places under the dense vegetation and neutralizing dozens of them. Some of the ISWAP elements, who were attempting to flee the location, were taken out in follow-on attacks.”
