ISIS terrorists inflicted heavy losses on Nigerian government forces in two recent attacks in the northeastern state of Borno.
The first attack, which took place on July 13, saw the terrorists targeting several posts of local pro-government forces near the town of Lambwa.
Four fighters and a civilian, allegedly a spy for the government, were killed by the terrorists. During the attack, the ISIS members also captured a pickup truck and set several houses on fire.
The second, larger attack took place on July 15. ISIS terrorists stormed a base of the Nigerian Armed Forces in the town of Kawri. At least one service member was killed.
During the attack, the terrorists set a Swiss-made Mowag Piranha I armored personnel carrier, a French-made Panhard AML armored car and a pickup truck on fire. The terrorists also captured four pickup trucks as well as quantities of weapons and ammunition.
ISIS cells have stepped up their attacks on Nigerian government forces and civilians in the last few weeks. The terrorists carried out attacks in Borno, Yobe and Adamawa.
The terrorist group has established a strong presence in Nigeria over the last year. Despite government efforts, the threat posed by the group continues to grow.
