French military officers in Mali ambushed twelve Muslim terrorists and killed all of them. As we read from Reuters:
French forces in northern Mali have killed around a dozen Islamist militants in the region of the Adrar des Ifoghas mountains, France’s defense ministry said on Monday.
No French soldiers were killed in the attack which took place on Saturday night, the statement said.
Malian military sources said the French operation was conducted between Boureissa and Abeissa, some 120 km (75 miles) from the northern desert town of Kidal, a stronghold of Tuareg separatist rebels.
The Islamist group was spotted by aerial surveillance, and engaged by French ground forces, one Malian source said.
