The Defence Headquarters, DHQ, said Operation Lafiya Dole’s Air Task Force had killed some Boko Haram residents in the Sambisa forest and Yale areas of Borno State.
DHQ revealed that during Monday’s separate air strikes, many terrorists were killed.
Enenche said the air raids were carried out after credible intelligence and a series of aerial surveillance missions.
According to him, this indicated that some terrorists that carried out recent attacks against innocent civilians were harboured in makeshift structures in the areas.
He said that the military dispatched Nigerian Air Force fighter jets and helicopter gunships to attack the two locations.
“The attack aircraft, while taking turns to engage the targets, delivered lethal bomb and rocket strikes, resulting in the destruction of some of the structures and the killing of several terrorists,” he said.
