Boko Haram fighters attacked Chadian army positions in Gambaru, a town in Borno State, Northeastern Nigeria, on Wednesday.

Chadian military sources confirmed the development.

?We knew they were going to attack us. We were waiting. The battle didn?t last long. They fled,? one military source told Reuters.

The sources confirmed that eight Chadian soldiers were wounded, three of 14 Boko Haram vehicles were destroyed and one was seized.
Chadian troops are in Gambaru as part of a regional offensive against Boko Haram, whose militants have staged several cross-border attacks over the past week as part of its campaign to establish a caliphate in northern part of Nigeria.
