A convoy of the Nigerian military was ambushed on September 10 by ISIS near Lake Chad in country’s northeastern region.

The convoy was reportedly heading towards the town of Gudumbali in Borno state, when the terrorist group’s fighters targeted it with heavy machine guns and rocket-propelled grenades.

“The terrorists surprised troops with an ambush as they were heading to Gudumbali … We lost several soldiers, vehicles and weapons to the terrorists in the attack,” a Nigerian security source told the France-Press Agency (AFP).

ISIS’ news agency, Amaq, said that “dozens” of Nigerian service members were killed or injured in the ambush. The AFP’s source confirmed that the number of casualties was “huge.”

According to Amaq, the terrorists captured nine 4×4 trucks during the ambush. Photos of the ambush show that the terrorist group also captured a Panhard AML armored scout car and a Igirigi armored personnel carrier (APC).

In the last few months, ISIS fighters stepped up their operations near Lake Chad in what appears to be an attempt to strengthen their influence in the region. The Gudumbali ambush was one of the terrorist group’s biggest attacks in 2019.

    And of course, once again, absolutely no Deash soldiers were killed because they’re all completely indestructible. Gee how’s this for an idea Nigeria; how about ACTUALLY FUCKING FIGHTING BACK!!! You can’t all be so totally fucking useless can you?

      This was a planned abush meaning the vermin had information of their position; now how unlikely is that with the likes of Nato and the US in there ?……NOT.

    Daesh like clockwork spring up wherever the U.S. armed forces get stationed such as with AFRICOM. It,s clear these ISIS Muslim phonies are nothing more then drugged out on the payroll mercenaries for hire, that U.S. to have their make believe war on terror. Always noticed these phony Muslims such as ISIS or Al-Queda never do any terrorist hit on Western nations or their interest, and most importantly Israel. That’s the real litmus test of real resistance group like Hezbollah, Hamas, PMU, Houthis, or even the Taliban as opposed to phonies like ISIS or Al-Queda.

    The Nigerian military can slaughter innocent peaceful protesters and those who stand for righteousness. Those cowards can’t even destroy ISIS who’s a true treat to peace and all of humanity.
