After Surveillance Missions, Military Jets Bombard Terrorists
Troops of the Air Task Force (ATF) of Operation Lafiya Dole have neutralized several terrorists, and destroyed structures belonging to Boko Haram fighters.
A statement by Maj. Gen. John Enenche, said the troops have recorded more successes in their air campaign against BH insurgents in the North East.
Enenche, Coordinator of the Defence Media Operations (DMO), said: “The latest of these 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, he said, 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,” Gen. Enenche added.
