Joint Task Force Operation Hadin Kai in the North East air component, in Borno State, have reportedly killed in airstrikes, over 100 suspected members of the Islamic State of the West African Province (ISWAP).
According to Zagazola Makama, a counter-insurgency publication that focuses on the Lake Chad region, the airstrikes were conducted when the terrorists were meeting in the forest at Bukar Mairam in Marte Local Government Area of Borno.
Makama said the airstrikes followed surveillance that detected a large gathering of terrorists at the enclave.
“The ISR platform sighted a massive movement of the insurgents moving toward a location suspected to be a meeting point of the terrorists.
“The strikes were successful, scoring devastating hits in the terrorists’ position.
“The terrorists converged in the area to plan night attacks against our troops’ locations,” Makama quoted a military source as saying.
Recall that last week, airstrikes by the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) killed over 100 bandits in Kebbi state.
