Ugandan military fighter jets hit three ADF targets in Congo

08 Oct 2023

KAMPALA: Uganda’s president Yoweri Museveni has said the country’s military fighter jets hit three targets of the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) terrorists in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

A press statement from State House on Thursday said the air ride by the Uganda People’s Defence Forces (UPDF) bombers was carried out on Wednesday.

“Our fighter- bombers paid another visit to the terrorists, quite some distance inside Congo, in the Mambasa territory area. They attacked three targets, 180km, 184km and 200km, respectively, from the border on the Ntoroko side,” Museveni said in the statement.

The president congratulated the joint forces of UPDF and the Congolese army for protecting the population against the terrorists.

They [terrorists] have been inviting us to pay attention to them by killing Ugandans and we are now responding to the invitation. The attacks are invariably precise, and we shall find out, after some time, who and how many terrorists died,” the president said.

“It is futile and very dangerous to the individuals involved, to think that they can kill Ugandans and be safe themselves,” he added.

The attack comes barely a month after the joint forces rescued 30 abductees from the terrorists.

The ADF, a branch of the Islamic State in Central Africa, is a Ugandan rebel group that is holed up in the jungles of eastern DRC. The rebel group is blamed for causing havoc in villages in eastern DRC.

The Ugandan military and their Congolese counterparts started joint operations against the rebel group in November 2021, shortly after the ADF launched bomb attacks in Kampala, the capital of Uganda.
