The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has said that the Air Task Force of
Operation LAFIYA DOLE, has destroyed some Boko Haram terrorist structures and logistics facilities at Garin Maloma and Parisu in the Sambisa Forest.
NAF spokesperson, Air Commodore Ibikunke Daramola said in a statement that the air strikes were executed on 23 and 24 February 2020 “as part of the ongoing Operation Rattle Snake 3 based on credible intelligence reports indicating that elements of the BHTs that carried out the attack on Garkida in Adamawa State originated from camps within the Sambisa Forest.”
“Consequently, the ATF dispatched its attack aircraft to engage both locations, destroying several structures housing the terrorists as well as some of their logistics stores, which were seen engulfed in flames.” He said.
“The NAF, operating in concert with surface forces, will sustain its air campaign to shape the battlespace in the Northeast for the effective conduct of further ground and air operations.”No tags for this post.
