I didn't even know there was a problem going on there. I've not heard one peep about it in the news here.


From the video description:

Video footage from Central Africa shows Portuguese paratroopers in heavy combat with african rebels in the area of Bambari in the Central African Republic earlier this month.

The combat footage was recorded during a major operation that included 50 hours of heavy combat firefights and led to the seizure of a rebel base in the area of Bambari. The paratroopers of the Portuguese armed forces are currently operating under the United Nations’ peacekeeping mission in the Central African Republic.

The battle began when African rebels of the UPC (Union for Peace in the Central African Republic) launched a violent attack on the town of Bambari, some 400 kilometres from the capital Bangui, in a bid to seize resources and extort the local population by collecting taxes.

The UPC is a former member of the Seleka rebel alliance, a coalition of mainly Muslim groups that seized power in the majority Christian country in 2013. Portuguese armed forces declared the operation a success with no own casualties .
Footage was uploaded January 19, 2019.
