▪︎Intensifies air strikes on terrorist targets

The Air Task Force of “Operation LAFIYA DOLE” has eliminated some Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP) terrorists and destroyed compounds housing them at Kaza along the Gulumba Gana – Kumshe axis of Borno State.

Confirming the report, Coordinator, Defence Media Operations, Defence Headquarters, Major General John Enenche, said the air strike was executed on September 1, following credible human intelligence reports as well as confirmatory Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions indicating a resurgence of terrorists’ activities in the settlement.

Enenche added that the identified locations within the settlement were therefore attacked by fighter jets and helicopter gunship dispatched by the Air Task Force, resulting in the destruction of the structures and the neutralization of some of the ISWAP fighters.
