The Cameroon is already geraed up it's Soldiers to fight against the Boko Haram Militants who repeatedly fighting alongside the Cameroon border area's. they already attacked the birder area's of Niger Nigeria CHAD. But no one take tough measures to deal with Boko Haram. But Cameroon only have decent Forces to take out those Terrorists. The Boko Haram already voiced about Expanding the Islamic Caliphate in Africa and Gained control over some Nigerian provenance. Recently The Cameroon Air Force Strikes the Boko Haram with it's Alpha Light Attack/trainer and scored some Hunderd Enemy Kills.
Thus Boko Haram retaliated with continue Assaulting Cameroon Villages near to the Nigerian Border. Two days ago the Boko Haram Kidnapped some 80 Cameroon Civilians near to the Nigerian Border. and the Cameroon Geared up it's forces and in the same day they freed some 40. Search and Rescue mission still going on. While both European and Americans are busy with dealing against the ISIS Threat in Iraq and Syrian Province they didn't take care about the Poor Africans
