According to Reuters,

“Separatist rebels fired on a Cameroon Airlines passenger jet as it approached Bamenda Airport in the northwest of the country on Sunday morning (December 1, 2019), their leader told Reuters.

The scheduled flight from Douala landed safely and there were no casualties, Cameroon Airlines said in a statement confirming the attack. The airline has grounded the plane while it assesses the damage.

The English-speaking west of Cameroon has been a battleground since 2017 between the army and rebels seeking to form a breakaway state called Ambazonia.”
