Three French Soldiers Killed by Explosive Device During Operation in Mali

PARIS (Sputnik) – Three French troopers have been killed after their armored car struck an improvised explosive system in Mali on Monday morning, the Elysee Palace’s press division stated.

French President Emmanuel Macron has expressed his condolences to the households of the victims, in accordance with the press launch.

France launched Operation Barkhane, an anti-terrorism operation concentrating on Islamist teams in the Sahel G5 nations (Mauritania, Mali, Burkina Faso, Niger, Chad), six years in the past.

Amid continued unrest in the area, France and 12 nations created the Takuba Task Force in March to offer additional help to the Malian armed forces.
