Islamists Kill French Soldier In Mali

Matthew 24:10,11 Then he said to them: “Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven.

The first French ground soldier has been killed in the battle against Islamic terrorists in Mali.

The soldier from the French Foreign Legion died as Special Forces were searching for terrorists in a mountain region in the Sahara Desert. The operation killed 20 terrorists according to the French defense ministry.

“There was a serious clash with many dead on the terrorist side but also a death on the French side,” French President Francois Hollande told reporters. He said the mission was aimed at capturing the last terrorist groups and their leaders.

The only other French loss was a helicopter pilot shot down on the first day of the French intervention.

The French intervention, just over a month ago, has effectively ended the terrorist’s attempts to overthrow the Malian government.
