Fighting that would have taken place on Tuesday, September 14, 2021, according to a statement from the Fact, Front for Alternation and Concord in Chad, a rebel group behind the death of Idriss Déby Itno in April.

A first bombardment would have started on Tuesday around 10 a.m., followed by a second in the evening, near Tarbou in southern Libya. The fact established one of its bases there. “Exactly drone fire shelled the area,” said spokesman for the rebel group Kingabé Ogouzeïmi De Tapol. He adds that these shots were aimed at Mahamat Mahdi Ali.
The head of Fakta, who is leading the counter-offensive on the ground, confirms that seven Chadian rebels have died, including five cadres. He mentions dozens of deaths on the Libyan side. These strikes were claimed by Khalifa Haftar’s forces. Forces supported by Sudanese toroboros and Chadian soldiers, according to Fakt.
Patrols to secure the border Accusations rejected by Ndjamena. Defense Minister Daoud Yaya Brahim confirms that “no Chadian soldier intervened on Libyan soil”. He specifies that the troops are limited to patrols to secure the border.
Facts also imply France and also claim that they have identified five French soldiers, who were assigned to the mortar fire. A French security source in Chad evokes “false information”. She specifies that the drones are quite involved in Mali and Niger against terrorism.
