Dozens Killed In Borno Rivalry Between ISWAP And Boko Haram
The Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP) and the late Abubakar Shekau Boko Haram branch engaged in an intense rivalry war on Thursday that resulted in the deaths of a commander only known as "Kundu" and other militants.

The conflict took place between the local governments of Dikwa and Bama.

According to a security source, the ISWAP caught up with Kundu and his team while they were on a robbery mission. They were travelling on six motorcycles, each carrying three fighters.

The altercation was corroborated by Zagazola Makama, a security analyst and counterinsurgency in Lake Chad.

He stated, "A fierce battle broke out between the terrorists, leaving hundreds of Boko Haram terrorists dead while only a few ISWAP militants were hurt.

The militants from Boko Haram turned around and fled, handing the ISWAP terrorists their motorcycles.

In a separate incident, Nigerian military attacked the ISWAP strongholds in the Lake Chad Basin in a series of operations, killing dozens of militants, including three commanders.

It was discovered that three camps in the northern region of Borno State were destroyed by military jets Super Tucano that were expertly coordinated by the air component of Operations Hadin Kai.

It was learned that the Air Task Force (ATF), Operation Hadin Kai, launched its coordinated attacks on the terrorist hideouts in Rino, Jibularam, and Kangarwa in the Marte and Kukawa local government districts in the early morning hours of September 14.

Numerous fighters were killed between Tuesday and Thursday during numerous airstrikes in Lake Chad, a senior military officer told our correspondent.

The first destructive air interdiction, according to Makama, who also confirmed the operations, was directed at a terrorist hideout and a training facility near Rinu, where it resulted in the deaths of an undetermined number of fighters.

According to sources, the ATF carried out another bombing raid in Jibularam, which led to the deaths of numerous combatants, including three ISWAP commanders.

The chief prosecutor Muhammed Balge, his deputy Malam Chiroma, and the terrorists' marksman Amir Bashir, also known as Iblis, were identified as the commanders by a source.

"In another accomplishment, the troops in Kukawa LGA's Kangarwa axis neutralised numerous terrorists travelling in two cars, all in response to credible and actionable intelligence obtained by the air component of Operation Hadin Kai.

"As soon as NAF aircraft heard the distress call, they hurried to the scene and engaged numerous terrorists in combat. The military source claimed that the massive deaths caused by the airstrikes on the terrorists were exposed by the deployment of troops around the location.
