Jihadis stage “unprecedented” “major, complex attack” on UN military camp in Mali, “particularly sophisticated and underhanded”

The United Nations is international PR arm of the global jihad movement. Driven largely by the OIC (Organization of Islamic Cooperation – the largest world body at the UN, made up of 56 Muslim countries and the terror group Palestinian Authority), the United Nations works in the cause of advancing sharia law and its blasphemy laws across the world. You would think UN peacekeepers would be safe from jihad attack. You would be wrong.

Some of the jihadists wore peacekeepers’ uniforms and explosive belts and used vehicles covered up with U.N. and Malian army codes. Three car bombs were exploded.

UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY) – An “unprecedented” attack by gunmen wearing UN uniforms and arriving on board booby-trapped vehicles and using rocket launchers targeted two camps for the UN mission and the French army of Barrakhan, killing one person and wounding about 20 others.

The attack began at 14:00 local time (GMT) and the time of Greenwich in the port of the northern Mali city where UN troops and men from the French garrison are stationed.

In a statement, the Ministry of Financial Security said in a statement that while the two camps were being subjected to “about 10 rockets,” men in international peacekeepers tried to “sneak” into the military zone on two booby-trapped vehicles.

One of the vehicles carries the emblem of the armed forces of finance and the second is the short name of the United Nations. The first exploded while the second was defused.

The UN mission said one peacekeeper was killed “during an exchange of fire.” About 10 others were wounded. The Ministry of Financial Security said that about 10 “wounded” were killed in the ranks of the Burgan force.

“The fighting ended at about 18:30,” the ministry said, more than four hours after it began. Bamako and the UN mission confirmed they had regained control of the situation.

In a tweet on Twitter, the UN force spoke of a “major, complex attack” that brought together “mortars”, “exchanges of fire” and “a booby-trapped attack”.

“This is the first attack of this magnitude against Minusma (the UN mission in Mali) in Timbuktu,” a foreign security source told AFP.

“It is an unprecedented attack, involving missiles, rockets and explosions, and there may be suicide bombers,” a local official told AFP.

Here is how the AP wrote it up:

French army describes ‘underhanded’ extremist attack in Mali

AP, April 15, 2018:

PARIS (AP) — The French army says a deadly extremist attack on a U.N. military camp in northern Mali was “particularly sophisticated and underhanded.”

Officials have said the attack on a camp for the U.N. mission known as MINUSMA in Timbuktu on Saturday left one peacekeeper dead and a number of wounded.

The French army said in a statement Sunday that seven soldiers from the French military operation known as Barkhane were among the injured and that 15 attackers were killed in a counterattack.

The statement said some of the jihadists wore peacekeepers’ uniforms and explosive belts and used vehicles covered up with U.N. and Malian army codes. Three car bombs were exploded, it said.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility, though a number of extremist groups are active in the region.
