French Paratroopers Jump into Jihadist Territory
French paratroopers dropping into hostile territory near terrorist havens on the Libya-Niger border. Taken during an airborne operation at the 'Salvador Pass' at the border between Libya and Niger, the video shows part of the anti-jihadist operation in the Sahel – the desert region which stretches across North Africa. With Islamic State increasing its presence in the beleaguered North African State, the region, a gateway to Europe, has been of even greater concern to France and its allies in recent months.
