In Mali, the French military is in the process of leaving the Kidal base, as France began in June to reorganize the Barkhane force in the Sahel. In the north of the country, the bases in Tessalit and Timbuktu will also be closed by the end of the year and then handed over to the Malian army. If air support will be maintained, the strength of 5,100 French soldiers hitherto present in the Sahel will be reduced.
