Mali-Seven UN Peacekeepers from Togo killed in another attack

Seven Togolese peacekeepers, deployed within the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali (Minusma) were killed Wednesday in the center of the country.

Their logistics convoy, which was traveling in the Bandiagara region, struck an improvised explosive device between Douentza and Sévaré (Route Nationale 16), the Mission explained.

The attack, “odious and cowardly”, was “strongly condemned” immediately after, in a press briefing carried out in New York by the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Antonio Guterres, then by his special representative in the country, El -Ghassim Wane.

According to the Head of Minusma, this umpteenth act which “follows a series of attacks targeting civilians and personnel of the Mission”, could constitute “a war crime in accordance with international law”.

The same indignation on the part of the UN Under-Secretary-General for Peace Operations, Jean-Pierre Lacroix, who indicated that “these crimes must not go unpunished”.

For Togo, which also counts three other wounded, it is a new loss. The country, which has been committed for years to a return to peace and stability in Mali, also suffered a suicide attack earlier in the year.

Ce sont des genocidaires de ttes les facons.
Qu est ce qu ils st partis chercher au Mali.
Est ce Kip’s ont fini de genocider les togolais?
Comme le dit si bien l’adage de chez nous si tu dois de l’argent à Dieu et que tu ne veux pas payer, tu le payeras à Legba.
Moi je m’incline devant la mémoire des prisonniers politiques du PNP et des victimes de la répression barbare qui s est passé ds la région centrale lors de la révolte populaire de 2017-2018.
Je ne m’inclinerai jamais devant la mort d’un genocidaire.
À bon entendeur salut

Les soldats des Forces armées tribales (FAT) des analphabètes Gnassingbe, déployés au Mali, nullards et incapables, se font zigouiller par dizaines, par des amateurs, des soi-disant djihadistes. Forts contre les peureux togolais, faibles contre les amateurs du Mali qui n’ont pas peur de mourir !!!
