Nigerian Air Force, NAF, has confirmed that its ongoing bombardment operation in the notorious Boko Haram haven, Sambisa forest, has claimed the lives of many terrorists in the last one week.
The operation, code-named ‘Forest Storm’, involving fighter aircraft such as the F-7 Supersonic attack jets, surveillance aircraft and Mi-35 helicopter gunships, took the terrorists unaware as they never believed that their locations were unknown to the air force.
Director of Air Force Public Relations, Group Captain Ayodele Famuyiwa, who confirmed the ‘round the clock’ bombardment, disclosed in a statement yesterday that the strike would continue until the terrorists locations in the forest are sufficiently degraded.
The NAF spokesman said “We will leave no stone unturned until we accomplish our mission to flush out bad elements. The Nigerian Air Force in the last one week has successfully struck a number of Boko Haram terrorist locations including their logistics bases within Sambisa Forest.
“The air interdiction missions were conducted day and night using a combination of combat platforms comprising F-7Ni fighter aircraft, alpha jets and Mi-24V helicopter gunship.
“The latest air strikes against the terrorists are fall-outs of ‘Operation Forest Storm’ launched by NAF on October 2 to further degrade their capability within the Sambisa general area in order to create an enabling environment for ground forces to continue their operation.’’
