The relief of the Tessit post, southwest of Ansongo, was ambushed, the army said on social media.

“After heavy fighting, the toll shows 2 dead and 8 wounded” in the ranks of the army, she said.

Since 2012 and the outbreak of independence and then jihadist rebellions in the North, Mali has been plunged into a multifaceted turmoil that has left thousands dead, civilians and combatants, and hundreds of thousands displaced, despite the support of the international community and the intervention of UN, African and French forces. The crisis spread to Burkina Faso and Niger.

The so-called three-border zone was the subject after January 2020 of a major military effort by the French Barkhane force and its Sahelian partners, especially directed against the Islamic State organization in the greater Sahara. France claims to have considerably weakened the EIGS, while also hitting al-Qaeda and its affiliates, also active in the Sahel, hard.
