Rwandan soldiers in the forward sector of the battlefield eliminated 14 insurgents in Mozambique in fighting last week, however, a Rwandan soldier had sustained a minor injury.
According to media reports by Rwandan military spokesman Ronald Rwivanga, “the fighting took place between 24 and 28 July in the regions of Mbau and Awase.”
If not for the images obtained recently through social media, Rwanda is not a known user of the Isotrex Phantom II armored vehicle.
The blue coloured Phantom II APC was seen spearheading an assault against the insurgents in Awase.
“We mounted an ambush between Mbau and Awase where we killed two insurgents. And the rest of the fighting took place in Awase. We so far killed 14 insurgents in total,” Rwivanga said.
Isotrex Phantom II vehicle features 8 Gun Ports (3 Left, 3 Right & 2 Rear), Run Flat Tire Devices, Ballistic steel-case fuel tank protection, Central Tire Inflation System (CTIS), FLIR Driver Aid System, Navigation System, and Automatic Fire Suppression System.
