Yaounde: More than 100 suspected Boko Haram militants were killed and over 200 arrested during an operation conducted by Cameroon`s army in Far-North Region, an army source said Saturday.

The operation took place in Doble in the region bordering Nigeria, and was conducted by Cameroon Air Force and Rapid Intervention Battalion, an elite army unit Friday night, Xinhua reported.

During the operation, three air force pilots were seriously injured, the source said.

In the same night, 23 Cameroonian civilians were killed and a village was burned by suspected militants in Mozogo, a place in Far-North Region.

The suspected militants are active in the north of Cameroon, they often attack on villages in the area, pillaging properties of the villagers and sometimes taking foreign and local people as hostages.

The Cameroonian government has strengthened the military might this year by sending more troops in the north to fight against the militants.
