The Islamic State of the West African Province (ISWAP) on Sunday organized a mass funeral to honor its members who were eliminated by Nigerian Air Force (NAF) jets in Marte community, Borno State.
The airstrikes, carried out by the Air Component of Operation Hadin kai on July 29, 2023, at Jibularam and Kwalaram between 0830hrs – 0900hrs, successfully targeted and neutralized the terrorists who were planning coordinated attacks against the Nigerian military.
The prompt deployment of NAF jets led to confirmed casualties and destruction of ISWAP members and properties.
Surviving ISWAP fighters conducted the burial on the outskirts of Kwalaram as they regrouped after the airstrikes. This operation dealt a significant blow to the extremist group, disrupting their planned attacks in the region.”
