31

The French media publish urgent reports of the incident in Mali. According to Le Figaro, a publication citing the press service of the country's defense ministry, two helicopters of a joint mission collided in an African state. This is an anti-terrorist mission led by the French military command.


At the moment, it is reported that as a result of the collision of two rotorcraft, there are many dead.

The press service of the Champs Elysees reports at least 13 of the dead French troops. About the dead among other representatives of the joint contingent there is no data.

Recall that in Mali, Paris attracted troops from other NATO countries to the counterterrorism mission and not only. So, in this state of Africa there are representatives of the armed forces of Latvia, Ukraine, etc.

According to some reports, helicopters took part in a military operation against jihadists. According to the official version, they were not knocked off the ground, but made a collision during one of the maneuvers.

Among the dead - six special forces officers of the armed forces of France.

The announcement of the collision of two helicopters made the Elysee Palace today.

    Napoleon from Macaron - in any case, it doesn’t work out.
    But the military is humanly sorry.

      There is a civil war in Mali! The French are trying, as they can, to protect the population from extremists ... So here you are not quite right. We are responsible for those .... further, as conscience will tell
      And the military (people) are humanly sorry, that's for sure! what

        And remember, this "civil war" after the assassination of Gaddafi began, or before?

            Well, if you look at contour maps, then yes - the states are different.

              Well, according to the contour maps, even the borders do not have in common. And the fact that they began to sell weapons there after the overthrow of Gaddafi, so the French themselves reap the benefits of their actions. And the Tuareg revolution seems to have begun with the French submission. This is how paddlers want gold, uranium and much more.

        The prerequisites of this war were precisely created by the French; Mali was their Colony. The population is heterogeneous, the colonialists successfully set one part of the population of the country on another, the French left in 1958. The war did not stop there from the word at all.
        After discovering large reserves of gold, Uranus and much more - the French abruptly became Peacemakers!

        In our time, conscience can only be in front of its relatives, and in the world of capital, conscience has gone into oblivion. We all know who destroyed Kadafi and Libya, and whether they had a conscience and whether it has it now. After the fall of Libya and the destruction of Gaddafi, Mali was not able to resist the Tuareg nomads, who, as a result of hostilities in neighboring Libya, received at their disposal weapons and communications equipment. And they are in Mali Tuareg (0,9%). And who made the coup in 2012? And who protects the people? Again, the "noble" Europeans defend with the asses of the Balts, Poles and Ukrainians.

        Or protect the interests of your country?
        It is more interesting who were the pilots of the dead helicopters, because only the deaths of six French commandos were reported, that is, passengers, and whose crews were there? No matter how Ukrainian

      Not a very smart saying. In this case -
      We are talking about counterterrorism missionled by the French military command.

      helicopters took part in the military operation against jihadists.

        You will be the last one to appreciate the wisdom of My utterances! What do you even know about Mali? I will answer for you - zero! This anti-terrorist operation began exactly then - when the reserves of Uranus were discovered in Mali and the reserves of Gold were confirmed! The French - Instantly rushed to “help” their former Colony! You can not waste My time, your alternatively gifted opinion - I do not care at all! laughing

    Sorry for the soldier. I’m not Euro-European and I am skeptical of the French army, but they seem to be doing the right thing in Mali. Terrorism needs to be destroyed everywhere!

      A just cause is when a production and social development infrastructure is created in countries with a terrorist base, i.e. a social revolution is being conducted. Otherwise, the fight against terrorists will last forever, as long as the population exists.

        They were sent there to establish peace, and they are fighting there. I think that peacekeepers there should be used only as observers and not interfere in hostilities.

      I would doubt the right thing. I saw the consequences of the events in Libya, and especially the events in Côte d'Ivoire that I saw in Abidjan. There is no talk of humanity (you won’t be surprised at this), but there the French tried. Mali is also no exception (I already wrote here in another comment).

        I hold the presumption of innocence. Until the guilt is proved, I adhere to the Christian commandments. Therefore, the dead or good or nothing. Well, and all under one comb ... No. Not for me. Otherwise, then they can so deceive me with tar for the company.

          This is a good quality in life, I agree with you. But in the world of capitalism, this worldview is not acceptable. I write what I saw with my own eyes.

    In Africa, in general, "fire flared up" across the continent.
    It was in the press that the Wagner PMC battalion suffered heavy losses in Mozambique and retreated to the port for regrouping.
