The French Air Force has launched a violent airstrike against Al Qaeda militants operating in the African country of Mali. Mirage fighter jets and French Air Force drones fired missiles into central Mali, killing at least 50 Islamic terrorists. It is said that the attack was carried out by France on Friday near the border between Burkina Faso and Niger.
French Defense Minister Florence Parle said after meeting with Mali’s transitional government that on October 30 the French air force carried out an offensive in Mali that killed 50 jihadists. During this period, a large number of weapons were also recovered. The Malian government faces Islamic terrorists in the region. The French defense minister said 30 motorcycles also perished in the airstrike.
Planes fired missiles at terrorists
He said the attack was carried out when the drone discovered that large numbers of people on motorcycles were present at the border of the three countries. These jihadists hid under the trees and tried to escape surveillance. The French Air Force then sent two of its Mirage fighter jets and drones there. These planes fired missiles at the terrorists, which wiped them out.
Army spokesman Colonel Frederick Barbie said 4 terrorists had been apprehended. Explosives and a suicide vest were recovered from them. He said this group of jihadists was preparing to attack a military base. Barbie said a meeting with Islamic State militants was underway in the Greater Sahara region. It includes about 3 thousand soldiers.
