The Central African Republic Armed Forces (FACA) liberated the city of Boali, which is located northwest of the country’s capital, from the Patriots for Change (CPC) militants.
The soldiers of the government army managed to neutralize 44 radicals, three more were prisoner and taken for interrogation in Bangui. Among the liquidated were mercenaries from neighboring Chad and Sudan.
Until 2019, there was virtually no army in the The Central African Republic . Its restoration began after the conclusion of the Khartoum agreements with the active participation of Russian military instructors, who began to train personnel. Experts advise FACA and help carry out operations to clear the area from bandit formations.
The FACA counter-offensive began last week. Government forces lost ground after the Patriots for Change Coalition launched an offensive on Bangui ahead of the December 2020 Central African Republic elections.
