Chadian soldiers kill 207 Boko Haram fighters in Nigeria: army| Reuters

Soldiers from Chad killed 207 Boko Haram militants in fighting on Tuesday near a Nigerian town close to the border with Cameroon, Chad's army announced in a statement.

One Chadian soldier was killed and another nine were wounded in the clashes near Garambu, the scene of regular attacks by the Nigerian Islamist group in recent months. There was no immediate independent verification of the Chadian army's announcement.

Chad's military also claimed to have seized large quantities of small arms and ammunition and two pick-up trucks.

Niger, Cameroon and Chad have launched a regional military campaign to help Nigeria defeat the Boko Haram insurgency, which aims to carve an Islamic emirate out of northeastern Nigeria.

Chad deployed troops last month in support of Cameroonian efforts to stop repeated cross-border raids by the Islamists, whose operations increasingly threaten Nigeria's neighbors.

The African Union last month authorized the creation of the regional force, which will also include Benin, and is pushing for a U.N. Security Council mandate for the operation.

This just goes to show you what ISIS is doing is inspiring other sects and extremists who share the same beliefs. It's a hornets nest, and it was kicked relatively ferociously. Hopefully they can quell the uprisings and stop the deaths. Sickening when people don't think about how life should be equal.

It is sad, that some just want to do what they want and not care about the lives lost in the process, and it is really surprising some can do this and no morals. It may cause fear to them, but the boko haram group is like a wounded lion and will fight to the death and take many with them. People need to think about, what will happen and the consequences can be bad and also it is wrong to take lives as it destroys many in the process as well.

It's not right to rejoice over the demise of fellow human beings but I'd make an exception for Boko Haram, ISIS, al-Qaeda, Taliban, Jemaah Islamiya and terrorist networks in general. I feel like pumping my fists in the air. The African Union is generating good results. With their numbers greatly reduced, it won't be long before Boko Haram fades into oblivion.
