On February 21, French troops fighting Jihadist terrorists in Mali killed one of the region’s leading jihadists from an organization affiliated with Al Qaeda.

Yahia Abou Hamman was second in command of Jama’at Nusrat al-Islam wal-Muslimin (JNIM), an umbrella group for Al Qaeda-linked terrorists in the Islamic Maghreb.

Commandos belonging to France’s Barkhane force identified Hamman in a convoy north of Timbuktu. In an operation involving air and ground forces, French troops killed several Jihadis, including Hamman.
