French Anti-Terrorism Force Carries Out 'Armored Raid' in Sahara

The French military began Operation Barkhane in August 2014 to target Islamic extremist militants in their former colonies of Mali, Chad and Niger, part of Africa’s Sahel, which lies just south of the Sahara desert. This French military video posted on December 18 says it shows an armored raid in the Sahara, along with checkpoint operations used to prevent militant traffic via remote desert routes.

Several types of French military vehicles are shown in the video, though the focus is on the ERC 90 Sagaie, one of two six-wheeled types developed in France. Sagaie is the French word for the African spear called assegai. Credit: YouTube/ForcesFrancaises
