Operation Rattle Snake: NAF Fighter Jets Obliterate Terrorists’ Meeting Venue


In continuation of Operation Rattle Snake by Nigerian armed forces, the Air Task Force (ATF) of Operation Lafiya Dole has neutralised some Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP) fighters as they assembled for a meeting at their hideout in Kollaram on the fringes of Lake Chad in the Northern part of Borno State.

Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola, Director of Public Relations and Information, Nigerian Air Force, said the operation was executed on December 14, 2019 following credible intelligence reports indicating that some of the ISWAP leaders had assembled for a meeting in one of two buildings at the centre of the settlement.

The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) jets dispatched by the ATF to attack the location scored accurate hits on the target building completely obliterating it and killing its terrorists’ occupants.

The NAF, operating in concert with surface forces, will sustain its efforts to completely destroy all remnants of the terrorists in the Northeast.
