7:53 pm
takes time because of the security considerations because of the virus groups trying to coordinate if they have indeed worked together on this major attack they need to coordinate their what they are going to say to the media about the about the attack we know our we know that according to the mali and government official mali and government announcement that 53 soldiers were killed other sources talk about 38 militia members from those militia that work with the mali in government army and also with the french and the. and the west african troops 38 have been killed in the attack so it's a big blow against those troops trying to keep the peace in the region and trying to fight against al qaeda bases and groups related to them in that area and why do these groups continue to be so active in the region considering the international
7:54 pm
intervention force that's also there. well it's very clear that the the campaign that has been going on for years actually since 2012 has has failed to to finish those groups there despite the convergence of thousands and thousands of troops 5000 you have mentioned from the g 5 countries. including mali and 4 other side held countries you have thousands from false and you and has also a big existence there u.n. peacekeepers despite those efforts despite those armies it's very clear that that campaign has not given the results that were intended and thus probably according to analysts because the intension itself many accuse those troops of not really being their own lead to finish that phenomenon of so-called terrorism
7:55 pm
in the region but also countries have interests they have interest in staying there for a long time and coordination with them ali in government also is faltering because they accuse the modern government of not doing its share we have seen those defeats after defeats by them against a mali an army accusations there that whatever is give whatever is done whatever help is given to the modern army it's not making this army prepared enough to face the threat we also have their vast desert the fact that those thousands and thousands of kilometers of the son hell are uncontrollable those troops or so from foreign countries are not really going out chasing those groups but merely staying in big cities and mainly concerned about their own safety so lots of interested factors they're playing a role in making this operation very difficult and making it less fruitful ok and how many valves thank you. at least one person has been killed in gaza after israel
