‘Chammal : mission de frappe planifiée pour les Rafale de la base aérienne projetée en Jordanie

Mise à jour : 10/08/2018
Le 1er août 2018, une patrouille de deux Rafale C du « Groupe de Bombardement 43 » équipés de bombes à guidage de précision, a décollé de la base aérienne projetée (BAP) en Jordanie pour réaliser une mission d’appui feu incluant une frappe planifiée visant des capacités de production d’explosifs de Daech dans la vallée de l’Euphrate en Syrie.

L’opération planifiée et ordonnée par le centre des opérations aériennes de la coalition, le CAOC de la base aérienne d’Al Udeid au Qatar, visait à détruire un site utilisé par l’organisation terroriste pour fabriquer des explosifs et assembler des véhicules suicides.

La mission a été réalisée en coordination avec des avions de combat de la coalition. Après qu’une reconnaissance préalable du site, réalisée par un drone allié, ait permis de s’assurer de l’absence de risque de dommages collatéraux, les aéronefs français ont procédé au tir de deux bombes de précision « AASM » (armement air-sol modulaire), de 250kg. Les munitions ont détruit le bâtiment, conformément aux effets militaires recherchés.

Il aura fallu trois ravitaillements et 4h30 de vol aux deux Rafale pour accomplir cette mission qui traduit la détermination des armées françaises à poursuivre la lutte pour défaire totalement l’organisation terroriste Daech.

La base aérienne projetée en Jordanie contribue au quotidien à la lutte contre Daech. Depuis sa création, près de 6000 sorties, plus de 1000 frappes et 25 000 heures de vol ont été réalisées par les aéronefs stationnés.

Lancée depuis le 19 septembre 2014, l’opération Chammal représente la participation française à l’OIR (opération Inherent Resolve) et mobilise aujourd’hui près de 1 100 militaires. À la demande du gouvernement irakien et en coordination avec les alliés de la France présents dans la région, l’opération Chammal repose sur deux piliers complémentaires : un pilier « formation» au profit d’unités de sécurité nationales irakiennes et un pilier « appui » consistant à soutenir l’action des forces locales engagées au sol contre Daech et à frapper les capacités militaires du groupe terroriste.’

ACTIVITE DE LA FORCE

Formation au profit des forces de sécurité irakiennes

La Task Force Narvik continue de s’investir au profit des soldats de l’Iraqi Counter Terrorism Service (ICTS), unité d’élite de l’armée irakienne.
Initié début juillet, un stage « driver » est conduit conjointement par des instructeurs français et irakiens au profit de 40 soldats irakiens. Il a pour objectif principal l’apprentissage des savoir-faire indispensables au déplacement en convoi de véhicules en toute sécurité, dans des environnements variés. Particulièrement complexe, la réaction à des embuscades en milieu urbain est au cœur de cette formation qui s’appuie sur une instruction progressive et adaptée.
En complément des actions de formation déjà initiées, ce stage participe directement à la montée en puissance de l’ICTS.

Offensive contre les dernières poches de Daech en Syrie

En Syrie, les Forces Démocratiques Syrienne continuent leurs actions offensives contre les derniers territoires encore tenus par Daech, tout en poursuivant leurs actions de dépollution des zones conquises ces dernières semaines.

Poursuite des actions de sécurisation en Irak

Les opérations de sécurisation se poursuivent, face à des actions ponctuelles de combattants isolés de Daech aux moyens d’IED et d’attaque contre des infrastructures électriques. A l’occasion de ces opérations, les forces de sécurité irakiennes ont continué cette semaine de mettre à jour des caches de l’organisation terroriste contenant armes et IED, notamment à la frontière irako-syrienne.

ACTIVITE DE LA FORCE

Formation au profit des forces de sécurité irakiennes

La Task Force Narvik entre dans la phase finale d’une séquence de formation dense entamée fin juin, au profit de près de 200 soldats de l’Iraqi Counter Terrorism Service (ICTS) dans 5 domaines de spécialité différents.
La Task Force Monsabert poursuit ses activités de conseil et de formation au profit de la 6e Division, alors que celle-ci se prépare à participer à la sécurisation d’un important pèlerinage qui aura lieu le 10 août à Bagdad. Elle a notamment réalisé cette semaine des formations au profit d’une soixantaine d’instructeurs irakiens dans les domaines de la santé, du soutien médical, et du combat en localité.

Les bases aériennes en Jordanie et aux EAU en appui des opérations
Sur la semaine écoulée, les aéronefs de l’opération Chammal ont effectué 30 sorties aériennes en appui des forces locales engagées au sol (bilan du 1er au 7 août inclus). Lors de ces sorties 3 frappes ont été réalisées par les équipages de Rafale. Une frappe planifiée a été menée en Syrie, contre un site de l’organisation terroriste utilisé pour assembler des véhicules suicides. Deux frappes ont été réalisées en Irak en appui des opérations de sécurisation de l’armée irakienne, visant des positions de combattants de Daech équipés de pick-up.

Bilan total de l’action du pilier appui aérien depuis le 19/09/14 :

From French MoD on August 10th:

[France reports that on August 1st, a patrol of two Rafale C Bombing Group 43″equipped with precision guided bombs, took off from the proposed air base (BAP) in Jordan to carry out a fire support mission including a planned strike aiming on production facilities of Daesh explosives in the Euphrates Valley in Syria. The strike aimed destroy a site used by the terrorist organization to make explosives and assemble suicide vehicles. The mission was conducted in coordination with coalition fighter jets. French aircraft dropped two precision bombs “AASM” (armament air- modular floor) of 250kg. The ammunition destroyed the building.]

‘Chammal : mission de frappe planifiée pour les Rafale de la base aérienne projetée en Jordanie

Mise à jour : 10/08/2018
Le 1er août 2018, une patrouille de deux Rafale C du « Groupe de Bombardement 43 » équipés de bombes à guidage de précision, a décollé de la base aérienne projetée (BAP) en Jordanie pour réaliser une mission d’appui feu incluant une frappe planifiée visant des capacités de production d’explosifs de Daech dans la vallée de l’Euphrate en Syrie.

L’opération planifiée et ordonnée par le centre des opérations aériennes de la coalition, le CAOC de la base aérienne d’Al Udeid au Qatar, visait à détruire un site utilisé par l’organisation terroriste pour fabriquer des explosifs et assembler des véhicules suicides.

La mission a été réalisée en coordination avec des avions de combat de la coalition. Après qu’une reconnaissance préalable du site, réalisée par un drone allié, ait permis de s’assurer de l’absence de risque de dommages collatéraux, les aéronefs français ont procédé au tir de deux bombes de précision « AASM » (armement air-sol modulaire), de 250kg. Les munitions ont détruit le bâtiment, conformément aux effets militaires recherchés.

Il aura fallu trois ravitaillements et 4h30 de vol aux deux Rafale pour accomplir cette mission qui traduit la détermination des armées françaises à poursuivre la lutte pour défaire totalement l’organisation terroriste Daech.

La base aérienne projetée en Jordanie contribue au quotidien à la lutte contre Daech. Depuis sa création, près de 6000 sorties, plus de 1000 frappes et 25 000 heures de vol ont été réalisées par les aéronefs stationnés.

Lancée depuis le 19 septembre 2014, l’opération Chammal représente la participation française à l’OIR (opération Inherent Resolve) et mobilise aujourd’hui près de 1 100 militaires. À la demande du gouvernement irakien et en coordination avec les alliés de la France présents dans la région, l’opération Chammal repose sur deux piliers complémentaires : un pilier « formation» au profit d’unités de sécurité nationales irakiennes et un pilier « appui » consistant à soutenir l’action des forces locales engagées au sol contre Daech et à frapper les capacités militaires du groupe terroriste.’
