Dedicated fighter jets belonging to the Nigerian Air Force have attacked Boko Haram locations in Northern Borno, killing several insurgents. An Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) aircraft, on November 16, 2016, reported a gathering of the terrorists under a tree at Kadari.
An Alpha Jet on armed reconnaissance was called in to strafe the location thus killing a number of the insurgents and causing survivors to flee in different directions.
On 18 November 2016, NAF fighter jets again carried out a series of coordinated air strikes against Boko Haram Terrorist (BHT) locations at Ngoshe. The strike, carried out by a 3-ship formation of Alpha Jets against 5 carefully selected BHT targets, was part of OPERATION RESCUE FINALE by the Nigerian Army.
A similar air strike was conducted on another BHT location near Kangarwa on 19 November 2016. So far, our gallant troops are dealing with what’s left of the terrorists.
