French soldiers of Operation Barkhane, an anti-terrorist operation in the Sahel, patrol in an armoured vehicle in Gao, northern Mali, on May 30, 2015French forces killed or captured around 10 members of a jihadist movement in heavy fighting at the weekend in northern Mali, the French defence ministry said Tuesday. The statement said Al-Murabitoun had been “responsible for many attacks on civilians of Mali and Niger, as well as local army forces and international forces”. Al-Murabitoun was formed in 2013 by the merger of the Signatories in Blood group led by Al-Qaeda-linked Mokhtar Belmokhtar and the Movement for Oneness and Jihad in West Africa (MUJAO), which has been highly active in the Gao region of northern Mali.
