Four Malian soldiers and six terrorists were killed in an attack on a Malian army security post in the northwest of the country, the Malian Armed Forces (FAMa) said in a statement Sunday on their official website.
The post that was attacked is Guire sector 6, Nara region, the statement said, adding that the FAMa vigorously repelled this attack by an armed terrorist group and the provisional toll was four dead and 14 wounded on the side of FAMa and six dead in the ranks of the assailants.
The latest attack came after 27 members of the FAMa, one UN soldier and about 20 terrorists were killed in various attacks in Mali in October, announced in early November the Directorate of Information and Public Relations of the Armed Forces in its monthly report on the country’s security situation.
Since 2012, Mali has been facing multifaceted security, political and economic crisis. The independence insurrections, the jihadist incursions and the inter-communal violence have caused thousands of deaths and left hundreds of thousands of people displaced, despite the presence of UN (MINUSMA) and European forces.
