Operation Unity (OPHK) forces have successfully killed a large number of Boko Haram and ISWAP militants and raided 25 of their bases in a massive week-long operation against the terrorists in the state of Borno.
Intelligence sources reportedly informed an expert on insurgents and a security analyst in the Lake Chad region, Zagazola Makama, yesterday that the ground and air strikes, which began on January 7, 2024, as part of Operation Desert Sanity III, also led to a victory on the battlefield in Sambisa Forest and the Timbuktu Triangle.
The source stated that in a fierce attack carried out by the soldiers of Brigade 21 in Bama town, they clashed with terrorists in Ukuba in Sambisa, where they engaged in combat. As a result of the clash, they were said to have killed a number of ISWAP fighters, causing the other terrorists to escape.
The soldiers have also recovered various weapons and equipment to continue their efforts.
