According to defense intelligence sources, Ali Kachalla attacked security operatives in Mangoro Community. In response, NAF aircraft from Operation Whirl Punch swiftly supported the distressed troops. The air strikes, authorized when Kachalla and his group were traced to their hideout near Kopa Hills, were decisive and inflicted maximum damage on the terrorists.
More than 50 terrorists, including Ali Kachalla, were reportedly eliminated during the airstrikes. The fate of another terrorist leader, Dogo Gidei, remains uncertain as he was recently sighted in the area.
Despite attempts to gather information, the NAF spokesperson, Air Commodore Edward Gabkwet, refrained from making any official statements regarding the strike, stating that he had yet to receive a briefing.
This strike follows closely on the heels of the NAF confirming the elimination of another terrorist kingpin, Yellow Jambros, just 24 hours prior. If this momentum persists, it could signal the imminent downfall of these terrorists and their cohorts.
