French status of operations...

Operation Chammal, the French component of Operation Inherent Resolve (OIR), continues its mission of fighting Daesh and continues to support the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and the Iraqi Security Forces (ISF).
In Iraq, North-East Syria and the Middle Euphrates Valley, the security situation is stable. The ISFs as well as the FDS are pursuing their various operations of search and security against the clandestine cells of Daesh.

Present in Estonia as part of NATO's eFP ( enhanced forward presence ) mission , the Combat Sub-Battle Group (SGTIA) battle tank platoon, armed by the 12th Cuirassier Regiment (12th RC), surrendered at the Central Training Area (CTA) of Tapa for a shooting session on Saturday, July 20th. For a half-day, several sessions followed, starting with the one conducted by Char Leclerc's Dépanneur crew (DCL), who was able to complete four 12.7 mm machine-gun firefighting sequences from the machine.
Then the two crews of the Light Armored Vehicle (LAV) also fired at the 12.7mm caliber machine gun. Finally, the Leclerc tanks carried out two types of firing: coaxial with the machine gun and shooting of 120 mm exercise shells on targets.

The Barkhane force continues its effort in the Liptako-Gourma region, with an area equivalent to a quarter of the French metropolitan territory. It consolidates the achievements in the Liptako and institutes the same dynamics in the Gourma through operations, actions for the benefit of the population, and supporting partner forces.
