The Nigerian Air Force (NAF), through the Air Task Force (ATF) of Operation LAFIYA DOLE, has destroyed some Boko Haram Terrorists (BHT) structures and logistics facilities at Garin Maloma and Parisu in the Sambisa Forest general area of Borno State.
The NAF spokesman, Air Commodore Ibukunle 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.
He said: “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.
“The NAF, operating in concert with surface forces, will sustain its air campaign to shape the battle space in the Northeast for the effective conduct of further ground and air operations.”
