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.
This is contained in a statement by the Coordinator Defence Media Operations, Defence Headquarters Major General John Enenche in Abuja.
The statement explains that the air strike was executed on 1 September 2020 following credible Human Intelligence reports as well as confirmatory Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions indicating a resurgence of terrorists’ activities in the settlement.
It states that the identified locations within the settlement were therefore attacked by fighter jets and helicopter gunships dispatched by the Air Task Force, resulting in the destruction of the structures and the neutralization of some of the ISWAP fighters.
