The French liberation operation in northern Mali (Operation Serval) is a swift and successful one. Within a few weeks the French took the three biggest towns in the occupied north, Gao, Timbuktu and Kidal.
Below two YouTube clips, uploaded by the official YouTube channel of the French armed forces, FORCESFRANCAISES
The taking of Gao
The taking of Timbuktu
I expect the uploading of a clip about the taking of Kidal within a few days. I will publish that clip here as well.
