French soldiers eliminate more than 30 Muslim terrorists in Mali

BREAKING: French soldiers eliminated more than 30 Muslim terrorists in Mali in three counter-terrorism operations on Thursday and Friday, France’s army said.

The operations targeted al-Qaeda and ISIS-linked terror groups, the army added in a statement.

In November, an ISIS-linked terror group claimed responsibility for a helicopter collision that killed 13 French soldiers in Mali.

Mali has suffered violence since 2012 when Muslim terrorists took over the north. With the help of France, Mali’s army has recaptured the territory.

However, insecurity there continues and the violence has spread to other countries in the region.
