On July 2, ISIS news agency, Amaq, shared photos from a recent attack that targeted a military camp in the town of Bula Yobe in the northeastern Nigerian state of Borno.
The terrorists stormed the camp on June 27 following heavy clashes with the Nigerian Armed Forces (NAF). According to Amaq, eight soldiers were killed during the attack. A 4×4 vehicle was also destroyed by ISIS fighters.
