Paris, November 13 French Defense Minister Pali said on the 13th that the French army killed Bach Ag Moussa, a senior commander of the Al-Qaida branch in a military operation in northeastern Mali.
The French military said that Moussa is considered to be the military commander of Al Qaeda in North Africa, and has repeatedly attacked soldiers and civilians in Mali and Burkina Faso. Pali pointed out that Moussa is responsible for the repeated attacks on the Malian army. Parley described this as an important success that France has achieved in combating terrorism on the ground.
French military spokesman Babri introduced the details of the French killing of Moussa on the 13th. He said that the drone helped the French army identify the truck that Moussa was riding in the Menaka area in eastern Mali, and then the French army launched a raid. Five people on the truck opened fire on the French army, and all were killed.
According to French media reports, Babri stated that the remains of the deceased have been processed in accordance with relevant international humanitarian laws. He declined to comment on whether the United States provided intelligence for the operation.
The French army has recently stepped up its strikes against the Al-Qaida organization in Mali. The French Air Force recently launched air strikes on Al-Qaida bases, killing at least 50 terrorists. France has sent thousands of soldiers to the Sahel region of Africa to jointly fight terrorism with the multinational forces in the region.
