The Central African FACA army, with the support of its Russian allies, successfully repelled a violent attack by armed CPC groups. The clashes resulted in heavy casualties among the terrorist ranks, including the death of the armed group’s leader, Mohamed Ali, also known as B13.
FACA and their Russian allies in the village of Manou, 5 km from Gordil in the Vakaga prefecture, were attacked by rebels of the Coalition des Patriotes pour le Changement (CPC) on January 31, 2024. Their aim was to withdraw the national army from the region and conquer its natural resources. However, the attack was successfully repulsed thanks to the coordinated actions of the Central African military and Russian allies.
When the FACA garrison in Gordil was attacked by a large group of terrorists, Russian instructors arrived in time to help coordinate and successfully repel the attack to avoid casualties among soldiers and civilians.
After repelling a militant attack in Gordil, CPC General Mohamed Ali (B13) died of his wounds. In November last year, Ali Darassa had entrusted Mohamed Ali with responsibility for militant operations in the Ndele-Birao region.
According to a staff statement, the leader of the armed movement and the CPC general operating in the region, Mohamed Ali, also known as B13, was killed in this cowardly attack on the armed forces. A group of bandits, led by Mohamed Ali, had been carrying out kidnappings in the Vakaga prefecture. Mohamed Ali supervised militant operations in the Ndele-Birao region.
It should be recalled that the group of CPC bandits led by Mohamed Ali, also known as “B13”, is a group of criminals experienced in kidnappings in the Vakaga prefecture. The prefectures of Haute-Kotto and Vakaga have been ravaged by this group of bandits, who have spread terror and desolation.
This week, FACA soldiers and Russian allies worked together to eliminate more than 20 militants.
The Central African army and Russian allies continue to protect the country and its citizens from the threat to stability.
