The offensive took place on Friday near the borders of Burkina Faso and Niger

The French government said Monday its forces had killed more than 50 jihadists aligned to Al-Qaeda in airstrikes in central Mali.

The offensive took place on Friday in an area near the borders of Burkina Faso and Niger, where government troops are struggling to rout an Islamic insurgency, French Defence Minister Florence Parly said after meeting members of Mali's transitional government.

"On October 30 in Mali, the Barkhane force conducted an operation that neutralized more than 50 jihadists and confiscated arms and material," Parly said, referring to the French-led anti-jihadist Operation Barkhane.

She added that around 30 motorcycles were destroyed. The operation was launched after a drone detected a "very large" motorcycle caravan in the "three borders" area.
When the jihadists moved under trees to try and escape surveillance, the French force sent in two Mirage jets and a drone to launch missiles, leading to the "neutralization" of the insurgents, Parly said.

Military spokesman Colonel Frederic Barbry said that "four terrorists have been captured".

The United Nations has some 13,000 troops deployed in Mali as part of its peacekeeping mission, known as MINUSMA, while France has 5,100 deployed in the Sahel region. Mali has been struggling to contain a brutal jihadist insurgency which first emerged in the north of the country in 2012, overtaking a rebellion by mostly ethnic Tuareg separatists.



To get an idea where Mali is and deployment of French Forces....

Will we see drama over this also by the usual chest-beaters and flag bearers of the Ummah?

These buggers will now try to take retribution by targeting French assets abroad followed by more offensive action by the French. Interesting times ahead.

Good for them.
Frenchies abroad will send them to their 72 goats in jannat.
Baguettes are only Faguettes inside their precious l'Hexagon, in Foreign countries they give as good as they get, mostly more as we saw in the OP of this thread.
If only Baguettes were as baller in their own country, Maghrebis would be gentle as lambs.
