Another French soldier dies in Mali

Posted on


Thomas Dupuy is the tenth soldier who passed away since France came over to fight away the Djihad forces who want to overthrow the government. Thomas Dupuy who was born in Toulouse, in the east of France and was a non-commissioned officer in the air force was a paratrooper of the 10th commando which headquarters were located in Orléans.

He passed away on Wednesday while the French military forces were fighting away a terrorist group in Northern Mali.

The minister of Defense, Jean-Yves le Drian, added that two other French soldiers were injured in this operation.

French President François Hollande informed the public of his deepest condoleances and expressed his deepest respect for this non-commissioned officer of the air force while Manuel Valls, the French Prime Minister, shared his condolences as well and honoured the memory of Thomas Dupuy.

1400 French soldiers still remain in Mali. Paris renegotiated its military  tactics around 5 countries: Mauritania, Mali, Niger, Burkina-Faso and the Chad. This task force is aimed at fighting terrorists away from the upper part of the country and is believed to have involved over 3000 men.

Jean-Yves le Drian announced that the French presence in Northern Mali will be reinforced.
