On June 14, ISIS news agency, Amaq, released photos from a recent attack by the group’s fighters on Nigerian government forces in the northeastern Nigerian state of Borno.
During the attack, which took place on June 13, ISIS terrorists stormed a position of the Nigerian Armed Forces near the town of Katavila. The terrorists entered the position after heavy clashes with government troops, who eventually withdrew.
According to Amaq claims, a number of Nigerian service members were killed or wounded during the daring attack. The entire position was also set on fire.
ISIS terrorists seized loads of weapons which were left behind by Nigerian troops, including two British-made Vickers Mk. 3N “Eagle” battel tanks. The terrorists set at least one of the tanks on fire.
ISIS terrorists attacked another Nigerian military base near the town of Gumbi in Borno on June 15. Three soldiers were reportedly killed in the attack. The terrorists also captured and burned a battle tank.
Borno is slowly turning into a stronghold of ISIS. The terrorist group has been working to expand its influence around Lake Chad for a few years now.
