Two raids of Mirage 2000D based in N'Djamena (Chad capital city) hit a column of pick-up trucks coming from Libya. Not related to [/i]Opération Barkhane[/i], only a sign of support to Pdt Déby, against rebels who want him out. Some form of recognition for his help in fighting the jihadists in Sahel. The history repeats itself in Chad. Looks like similar situations in the good old days of Opération Manta and later Épervier in the 80s...

Is Deby's nephew (evacuating Libya, due to on going clashes in the East). In the meantime, the son of Pdt Deby, is doing atrocities in the north of Chad (protecting the gold mines, supposedly). Some things never change.

Hi Rick,
I can't say that I heard that rumor. I was Cpl encardrement for the promo during his recyclage. Do you know that he was in a French TV series? I forget it's name, but it was well... French.

Watching it now. Dedicated to Barkhane and Chamelle. First break and a few stats I have learnt. Out of the 4,500 French troops deployed, 3,000 are ULS (unités de logistique et de soutien). The documentary was shot 3 weeks after the 2 REI suicide attack. There is even a video footage of the after attack.
This programme might be on You Tube later... It's back on, bbl
