French Service Member Killed In Mali During Clashes With Militants

File image.

On September 24, the Ministry of the Armed Forces of France announced that a French service member had been killed by militants in Mali.

The fallen service member was identified as Corporal Maxime Blasco from the 7th Battalion of Chasseurs Alpins, the French Army’s elite mountain infantry force.

In a statement, the Ministry of Armed Forces said that Balsco was a part of a unit deployed to a forested area near Mali’s border with Burkina Faso on a mission to track down a suspected militant group that had earlier been spotted by a drone.

Balsco was killed when the militants engaged the unit at close range. He was shot by a sniper. According to the ministry’s statement, the gunman who shot Blasco was killed.

France has lost more than 50 service members in Mali since launching Operation Barkhane to counter terrorist groups in the Sahel Region in 2014.

In July, President Emmanuel Macron announced that Operation Barkhane would reach its end in the first quarter of 2022.

One of the most recent achievements of the French counterterrorism operation was the killing of Adnan Abu Walid al-Sahrawi, the leader of ISIS in the Greater Sahara. The terrorist leader was killed last August in Mali’s Dangalous Forest as a result of a drone strike.

Most people are completely unaware of the scam the French are running on central African nations. Research the details and you will understand the widescale extortion racket the French have been running for centuries.

They are still French colony, or even worse. And no one in the world really care….

People care. Spread the truth so that the french imbeciles are ejected from Africa, preferably by their own voting populace.

Indeed, I would like to see every soldier coming back inside our French borders. I don’t want to see my tax money spent on uranium foreign operations. Winter is coming, I’m ok with a cold one.

Well said, Sylvain. 👍

Isn’t it rather odd that wherever the americans, british or french have extortion rackets running, their militaries are present?

The various scams, drugs, weapons or human trafficking always exist alongside payed terrorist proxies like “isis”, “al-qaeda” etc.

A sick business model for the western 0.01℅. The scam has been obvious for decades.

That is their ill-nature and why the sit at the UN Security Council. To set forth their policies. Supposedly, Wagner, the Russian PMC is moving into Mali and due to this news, some countries such as Estonia have already decided to leave the French-led “anti-militant” effort.
