Kano, Nigeria, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 14th Jul, 2020 ) :Jihadists shot dead 10 Nigerian soldiers in two incidents in the country's restive northeast on Monday, security sources said.
Both sources spoke on anonymity because they were not authorised to pass on information to the media.
The latest losses for the Nigerian military come after at least 35 troops were killed last week in an attack by fighters loyal to the so-called Islamist State group near Kumulla.
ISWAP has focused most of its attacks on military targets but has increasingly carried out deadly attacks on civilians in recent months.
