França põe fim à operação antijiadista no Sahel

November 9, 2022 - O Presidente Emmanuel Macron anunciou que a França vai pôr fim à
Operação Barkhane, uma missão antijiadista na região africana do Sahel.

At its high point, there were 5,500 French troops taking part in Operation Barkhane, which was initially launched in 2013 to stem the advance of jihadist insurgents in Mali. The other countries in the partnership were Niger, Chad, Burkina Faso and Mauritania, according to the BBC.

Some 3,000 French troops will remain in Niger, Chad and Burkina Faso – but they will not act independently, only in co-ordinated actions with national armies. Significantly, this continuing deployment will have no official name, indicating that it is no longer an “external operation” as Barkhane was, the BBC said.
