 Two UN peacekeepers were killed in Mali.


The communique said that the attack occurred in the early morning of 27, the peacekeepers repelled the unidentified attackers, two Burkina Faso peacekeepers were killed in the attack, and many others were injured.

On the same day, peacekeepers stationed in the city of Mala in Mali were also attacked by improvised explosive devices. The Stabilization Mission in Mali did not disclose whether the attack resulted in casualties.

United Nations Secretary-General Guterres issued a statement through a spokesman on the same day, condemning the two attacks against MINUSMA. Guterres said attacks on UN peacekeepers could constitute war crimes and the perpetrators must be punished. He reiterated the United Nations strong support for Malis efforts to restore national stability. The United Nations Security Council also issued a media statement on the same day strongly condemned the attack on MINUSMA, saying that the attack will not affect the Councils determination to support the peace and reconciliation process in Mali. The statement expressed concern about the security situation in Mali and called on the Malian parties to implement the Peace and Reconciliation Agreement in full and without delay. In March 2012, there was a military coup in Mali. The Security Council adopted a resolution in April 2013 and decided to set up a Stabilization Mission in Mali. In May 2015, the Malian government signed a peace and reconciliation agreement with some armed groups in the northern part of the country. However, the northern part of Mali has been in constant conflict in recent years, and the central part of Mali has recently shown an increasing trend of violent conflicts and terrorist attacks.
