Militants say French air force helicopters crash into Mali as a result of shelling

One of the media resources, which is considered to be controlled by the ISIS terrorist group (* banned in Russia), submitted a statement by militants about the loss by France of two of its helicopters and 13 military personnel during a special operation in Mali.


Recall that a few days ago in Paris it was reported that helicopters collided during the maneuver. At the same time, it was added that what happened "was not connected with the fact that helicopters were attacked from the ground."

ISIS terrorists in turn claim that the French authorities are lying. The material of the Igilovsky media resource states that one of the helicopters belonging to the French contingent was fired precisely from the ground. Trying to get the car out of fire, the pilot allowed a maneuver that was unexpected for the pilot of the second helicopter of the French Air Force. As a result, one machine hit another screw, itself having received damage. Both helicopters crashed.

Recall that in Mali, an international military mission operates under the French command. As part of the mission, including military personnel from Ukraine and from the Baltic countries. According to the latest information, there were no other military personnel on board the helicopters except the French.

The activity of militants in Mali increased significantly after the NATO military invasion of Libya. Today, terrorist traffic continues between Libya and a number of Central African states, which the French military contingent is not yet able to stop.

    And why should the French keep silent about the shelling ?! Yes, on the contrary, it was even necessary to "invent" it in order to trumpet the whole world about the fight against ISIS (prohibited)! Request more funding and prove to the "partners" that they also brought a twig to the common fire.
    Well, the terrorists somehow stumbled too late. Previously, it was immediately reported that it was their dirty work ....

      Something is becoming increasingly difficult to get to the bottom of the truth. Let's hope that in the future with the Igilov’s statement, it will still be clarified.

      For those Frenchmen who in the near future can rotate to Mali to take part in the mission, both flyers and foot soldiers, the very fact that colleagues died as a result of shelling by militants is a demoralizing factor, and it is easier to psychologically accept the accident.

        But they do not suspect where they are being sent and what could happen to them there ?! Your logic is strange.

          All suspect something, but not all try on a wooden vest. At the military school, we had a course in military psychology, which is quite enough to give an assessment of why the command or the official authorities consider it right to hide from the subordinates the true cause of death of the police.
          Are you interested in this question?

          Having received the answer, you started ranting, but "if only if only."

            I disagree. I also attended a psychology course at VU, but I also did not miss political classes, which clearly indicated that orders must be followed. Yes, and in the oath there are words that "sparing no life."
            I repeat. Psychologically, the more you need to prepare fighters for the upcoming hostilities and all possible threats. Including shelling during transportation and terrorist attacks in the location.

              The morning began on the collective farm belay - "oath, not sparing life, we must prepare fighters" Watch your hands, take a slow pass and get you back to your original question

              You were given the answer that for those who go there on rotation, psychologically, an accident is easier to transfer than shelling by militants. If the error can be prevented, then there is no shelling. What's wrong?

    A video would be more than 90% likely.
    Most likely they attribute themselves victory to receive remuneration from sponsors.
    But sponsors will also ask for confirmation.

      It is quite plausible. There are many cases in history when other people's merits are attributed to themselves. "Victory has many" parents ", and defeat is always an" orphan. "

    Faced as a result of shelling or accidentally does not play a role. Bottom line: France lost 13 military units and 2 helicopters.
    As part of the mission, including military personnel from Ukraine and from the Baltic countries
    "Twin brothers", without which it is impossible to cope. Well, the Balts are even in NATO, and the Ukrainians with an unrealizable desire to get there and incomprehensible ambitions. In the country themselves, there are problems above the roof and finances sing romances, and the maintenance of even a platoon requires costs.

    Something the spirits were completely out of breath. Either the helicopters are "knocked down", then the special forces are "destroyed." A good plan to see fit. Fresh. laughing
