In what ISIS dubbed the “Invasion of Niger”, ISIS published a video detailing its capture of a military base in the province of Bosso in the west African country of Niger. Corpses of several Nigerian military personnel were featured in the video that also portrayed the fleeing of many other Nigerian soldiers from the barrage of mortar shells and heavy machine gun targeting of their positions.

Following its successful attack on the Nigerian military base, ISIS was able to seize cache-loads of ammunition, heavy equipment, advanced artillery cannons, rocket launchers, hundreds of machine guns and automated weapons, military grade vehicles and a functioning MLRS.

As ISIS struggles to maintain control over its territories in Iraq and Syria, it attempts to expand in sub-saharan Africa, central and south-eastern Asia.
