FARDC are intensifying raids on ADF rebels basions located near Kilia, North Kivu.

The Democratic Republic of Congo armed forces, FARDC, are intensifying raids on bastions of the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) rebels located near Kilia in North Kivu, military authorities said.

The Air Force has continued aerial bombardments of the rebels’ positions since Thursday, Jan. 13. The positions, according to the military spokesperson in the zone, are those where the rebels launch regular ambushes against business people on the Beni-Kasindi highway.

Since the beginning of this year, at least two ambushes against vehicles have been recorded in Kalembo, without serious damage.

This is the second time in one week that bombardments are being carried out by the DR Congo Air Force in Beni. 

Last Tuesday, Jan.11,  two ADF rebel bastions were also targeted by the military in Lusulubi and Nzulube.
