The Malian Armed Forces (FAMa) confirmed on Friday that more than ten Malian soldiers were killed in an attack on Thursday at Guire in Koulikoro region.
According to the FAMa, the “terrorist” attack took place around 6 p.m. on Thursday when more than ten Malian soldiers were killed and some others were injured.
Reinforcements have been dispatched, the FAMa added.
This is the third attack that the Malian Armed Forces suffered after a military mutiny on Aug. 18 that led to the resignation of Mali’s president Ibrahim Boubacar Keita.
Four Malian gendarmes and four Malian soldiers were killed respectively on Aug. 22 and 27 in Mali’s central region of Mopti.
No individual or group has claimed responsibility for the three attacks amid political instability in Mali.
