Mali gets new batch of drones from Türkiye

Mali’s air force chief, General Alou Boi Diarra, said he had received around 20 aircraft and a dozen drones at a ceremony.

AFP [Agence France-Presse] counted five planes and four drones on the tarmac of Bamako airport.


The drones were Turkish Bayraktar-TB2s, which are capable of reconnaissance and surveillance missions. Their observations can help make artillery and airstrikes more accurate, said Mali’s defense minister, Colonel Sadio Camara.
