Cameroon’s Military Killed 41 Boko Haram Militants

KABUL: (Middle East Press) According to officials, the Cameroon armed forces have killed at least 41 Boko Haram militants a day after the Nigerian militants invaded the Far North Region of neighboring Cameroon.

Cameroon’s Communications Minister Issa Tchiroma Bakary said on Monday, “Fending off a Boko Haram attack in the locality of Shogori village, our defense forces killed 34 members of the insurgents group and destroyed two fighter jeeps belonging to Boko Haram.”

Cameroon troops killed seven militants in a separate trap.

Cameroon launched airstrikes against Boko Haram on Sunday, after nearly 1,000 Boko Haram militants assaulted a military camp located near the northern border. The Cameroon forces were forced to flee. The base was retaken by Cameroon military later.

In May, Cameroon’s President Paul Biya declared war on Boko Haram. Since then thousands of Cameroonian troops have been deployed to defend the Far North Region.
