A video out of the Central African Republic (CAR) shows French troops engaging and maneuvering on armed combatants during Operation Sangaris.
The video begins with French soldiers confronting a protest march nearing their mounted patrol. Next, they are discussing their approach of a contested village, and as they move in, they receive contact from a local insurgent group.
The Frenchmen return fire and maneuver on the enemy positions. Before the video ends, they are treating a fellow soldier for what appears to be some sort of shrapnel or fragmentation injury to his shoulder. The video ends with some booty twerking from the local ladies.
Operation Sangaris was a French military intervention in the Central African Republic that lasted from 2013 until 2016. It was intended to stop mass killing after a rebellion ousted former president Francois Bozize.
