France 2 diffuse vendredi 10 juillet un document contenant des images restées secret-défense jusqu'à aujourd'hui. On y suit une opération de militaires français organisée au Mali sous le feu d'une attaque jihadiste dans la zone dite des trois frontières (Mali, Burkina Faso, Niger).
I saw this on last night's French news. basically it was during an operation last year, which until now has been kept as a Secret Défense*. It shows a group of French SF coming up against 10s of bad guys, jihadists. The Gazelle helicopter is hit by machine gun fire. A Tiger helico goes in to get them out. The bad guys are literally only a couple of minutes away. They have to fly out the two pilots and the sniper on the “running boards” on the outside of the helico which had never been done before with a Tiger.
*hasard du calendrier or a political bluff by Manu? I mean come on a couple of days before the 14th July and this operation is suddenly declassified. The three of them will be taking part in the Bastille Day ceremony.
What does Dusa think?
