Forces Focus – Operation Serval – 2e REP Combat Jump into Timbuktu

Wednesday, January 30th, 2013

To quote my friend Yancey, “Seems like the French had themselves a combat jump in Mali.”

This video by Pascal DuPont is the long version that shows the airland on the 27th of January into Gao and then concludes with the jump into Timbuktu on the 28th by the French Foreign Legion’s 2e REP ( 2nd Foreign Parachute Regiment) including Harfang drone footage. Then there’s a bunch of other stuff.
