After Nigerian Airforce fighter jets successfully liquidated numerous Islamic State Est Africa Province (ISWAP) terrorists over the weekend, the terrorist group conducted a mass burial in Marte, Borno State.
The ISWAP terrorists had gathered in the Jibularam and Kwalara areas to plan attacks against the Nigerian military when they were targeted and struck multiple times by the NAF jets.
Zagazola Makama, a Counter-Insurgency Analyst specializing in the Lake Chad region, confirmed the operation and reported that the ISWAP held the mass funeral on Sunday, July 30, 2023, to honor the jihadists neutralized in the North East of Marte.
According to him, “The terrorists were killed in a series of airstrikes executed by the Air Component of Operation Hadin kai on July 29, 2023, at Jibularam and Kwalaram between 0830hrs – 0900hrs.
“Both air strikes were positive with casualties and destruction of ISWAP members and properties.
“The mass burial of the vanquished terrorists was carried out in the outskirts of Kwalaram by the surviving fighters.”
