Three Bangladeshi peacekeepers were killed and four were wounded in attacks in the West African country’s Mali rebels.
In the statement, the Inter-Services Public Relations Directorate (ISPR) said in a statement that the bomb blast happened in the conflict between the rebels and the peacekeepers on Sunday.
The deceased were identified as Sergeant Altaf, EME (Dinajpur), Lance Corporal Zakirul, Artillery (Netrokona) and Sainik Monwar, East Bengal (Barisal).
The injured were Major Jadeed, Infantry (Dhaka), Corporal Mohim, Infantry (Noakhali), Sainik Sabuj, Padatak (Naogaon) and Sainik Sarwar, the Infantry (Jessore).
ISPR said they have been taken to Gao town for better treatment.
It is said in the statement that there was a clash between terrorists with Bangladeshi peacekeepers on Saturday while conducting peacekeeping operations in Mali.
“Our peacekeepers successfully resist them.”
On returning to duty after the duty, the Bangladeshi peacekeepers were attacked again on Sunday.
“With courage and success, they again rescind terrorists. But at one stage of the clash, three Bangladeshi peacekeepers were killed and four others were injured in the explosion of the improvised Explosive Device (IED) blast. ”
In 2013, the French forces defeated rebel militants and separatist Tuaregd from different northern cities of Mali. Then in that year UN peacekeepers were deployed in the country.
This mission of the United Nations is known as ‘Minusama’. This is considered to be the most risky among UN peacekeeping missions.
