attack, 3 x fighter jets and a
reconnaissance aircraft were immediately
deployed for the operation. While the
fighter aircraft were scrambled to repel
the attack, the Intelligence, Surveillance
and Reconnaissance (ISR) aircraft was
deployed to give guidance to ground
troops on the position equipment and
strength of the BHTs. The operation
which started at about 1700 hours (5pm)
continued till late evening at about 1915
hours (7:15pm) before the attack was
successfully repelled.
Before repelling the attack at Kangarwa,
the NAF also conducted a number of day
and night operations yesterday. The air
interdiction missions were aimed at
decimating the operational capability of
the insurgents. The operations were
carried out at Kashimeri, Tumbu Gini,
chukugudu and other BHT strongholds

on Bama and neighbouring settlements.
