The Nigerian air force conducted several airstrikes at suspected boko haram target locations on the outskirts of Tumbin Gini and Tumbin Kayewa in Borno state.
The airstrikes were informed by ground based intelligence and successive intelligence surveillance reconnaissance reports obtained from mission flown by NAF platforms.
In a video released by Nigerian Air Force, some of the terrorists could be seen at one of the terrorist’s rendezvous where they were believed to be holding a high level meeting when NAF Jets were scrambled to hit the locations.
A post-strike battle damage assessment of strikes revealed that the rendezvous was badly damaged with many causalities while those far from the vicinity could be seen scrambling for safety.
NAF f-7ni and the alpha jets were involved in the air strikes.
The air offensive has continued to deny the terrorists any hiding place and room for maneuver and enabled unhindered advance by the surface forces as part of the on-going Operation Gama Aiki.
