The 2017 Niger Ambush Explained (Extended Version)

Published June 23, 2021

The Niger Ambush, also known as the Tongo Tongo Ambush, happened on October 4, 2017. By the end of the ambush, four U.S. Soldiers and five Nigerian Soldiers would be killed.


This video, which was created by the Department of Defense, is an extended version of the video released by Stars and Stripes previously. This new video has an additional twelve minutes of information on the Tongo Tongo Ambush, including aerial footage from UAVs, ISR, and mission planning information that was not previously released.


The Tongo Tongo Ambush will be a failure that the U.S. Army has to live with for the rest of time. The men wounded and lost will never be forgotten, and their sacrifice will be something we remember for decades to come. Lessons learned from this ambush will resonate throughout the armed service, and hopefully prevent a future incident of this magnitude from every occurring again.
