Terrorists kill 7 soldiers in Nigeria's Borno State

TEHRAN, Dec. 04 (MNA) – Elements of the ISIL terrorist group killed seven Nigerian soldiers, including a commanding officer and a lieutenant, in northern Nigeria's Borno state, a military source said on Friday.

The militants attacked a military outpost in Rann, in Kala Balge local government area of Borno state, in three trucks at roughly 1:30 am, firing sporadically for an hour. When the shooting stopped, the soldiers went into the town and were killed in an ambush, the sources said, US news reported.

"Those that had hidden inside the town ambushed and killed the captain, lieutenant and five other soldiers," the military source said.

A military spokesperson did not reply to calls or text messages seeking comment.
