Heavy Firefight French Army vs Taliban Afghanistan 2010

Heavy Firefight

Bedraou valley, Kapissa Province, eastern Afghanistan close to the border with Pakistan.
On March 5, 2010, elements of French 13th Chasseurs Alpins battalion (13e BCA) of the 27th Mountain Infantry Brigade are going back to their vehicles. As in many occasions, Talibans awaited for the departure of Western troops to attack. In perfect calmness and discipline, the French Chasseurs kept the Talibans at bay while getting back to their VABs (armoured personnel carrier vehicles).
