BREAKING: 3 Dead, 2 Wounded So Far… Awaiting Further Information

Tragic news has come out of Africa this evening with the announcement of the deaths of three Green Berets.  Initial information was tentative but we can now confirm that the special forces unit was on a routine patrol near the border of Niger and Mali when they were set upon by militants that are now believed to be part of Al Qaeda.

The United States has been maintaining a small contingent in Central Africa as part of a larger peace-keeping and counter-terrorism operation tasked with monitoring and and assisting in efforts to quell the ISIS-affiliated Boko Haram terrorist organization.

The news, which was first announced by  Radio France International and later confirmed by numerous sources in the United States and abroad, is just the latest in a long series of attacks that escalated back in June.  Since then, Mali, Nigerien, French, and UN coalition forces have been targeted by militants.

Sputnik, a media outlet with ties to the Kremlin, reports that the majority of these attacks have been launched by a group known as Jama’a Nusrat ul-Islam wa al-Muslimin (JNIM) a subordinate of Al Qaeda.


As with many other African nations, Mali has been the site of a civil war fought between the Bamako government and the Tuareg minority, a Berber semi-nomadic ethnic group based in Northern Mali. Islamist militant groups also joined the fighting, and although the fighting has significantly died down between Mali and the Tuaregs, Islamists have been galvanized in 2017 with the creation of JNIM. This has caused West-backed African forces to step up efforts to counter jihadi groups such as JNIM.

A source that spoke to Reuters, however, believes that the attackers originated in Mali.

US Africa Command has yet to confirm the deaths of the US forces at the time of this publication, but CNN, the Washington Post, Fox News, and the Washington Examiner all concur with our report.  The statement released by US Africa Command did confirm the attack took place:

“U.S. Africa Command can confirm reports that a joint U.S. and Nigerien patrol came under hostile fire in southwest Niger,” the U.S. Africa Command said. “We are working to confirm details on the incident and will have more information as soon as we can confirm facts on the ground.”

Fox News spoke to an anonymous official familiar with the matter and learned that between eight and 10 troops were part of the American contingent and that they were working in tandem with Nigerien forces.

Niger and Nigeria have been struggling to maintain stability despite large regions of their states being controlled by Islamic militants.  As part of an effort to assist the African states, the US has been setting up a drone base.
