    Fighter jets of Nigeria's Air Force have destroyed artillery of the Boko Haram terrorist group in the country's Sambisa forest, local media reported Monday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — According to the Africa Independent Television broadcaster, one Alpha Jet and one F-7Ni fighter aircraft hit the positions of the terrorist group after a surveillance plane detected them in the forest.

    The news outlet added that further surveillance showed that the airstrikes were successful and the positions of the militants had been destroyed.
