“Staggering Outrage: UN Reveals Malian Troops and Foreign Forces Responsible for Killing 500 Innocent Civilians in 2022!”

In a shocking revelation, the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) released a report on Friday claiming that a military operation in central Mali resulted in the killing of at least 500 people in March 2022.

The report found that the victims, including women and children, were executed by the Malian Armed Forces (FAMa) and foreign military personnel.

The OHCHR also concluded that 58 women and girls were subjected to rape and other forms of sexual violence, while acts of torture were also carried out on the detainees. The report called these acts “war crimes” and in some cases “crimes against humanity.”

The report did not specify the identity of the foreign fighters but cited Malian official statements about Russian “instructors” helping in the fight against jihadists and comments attributed to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov about the presence of the private Russian security company Wagner in Mali.

Witnesses described the foreigners as white men in fatigues speaking an “unknown” language. They were seen supervising the operations, giving rise to the question of who was truly in control here.

These findings by OHCHR are extremely worrisome, says UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Volker Turk. Such brutality violates international legal principles and standards.

The world must stand up for the rights of the victims and hold the perpetrators accountable. This tragedy is yet another reminder of how war affects innocent lives and how the international community must work towards creating a safer, more equitable world for all.
