Menaka, a City in Defeat.

This is the desolation, Tuesday, November 20, 2012 in Menaka. Twenty-four hours after heavy fighting between the jihadists of Mujao and the MNLA, the toll is very heavy: many deaths on both sides in a city that, according to local sources, fell on Tuesday evening to Mujao.

According to eyewitness accounts, fighting that took place on Monday was formidable. A few dozen men from the MNLA, mostly from the local Tuareg community, fought a large number of heavily armed MUJAO fighters from GAO for the good part of the day.

After repelling several attacks, the defenders of Menaka, exhausted and without reinforcement, were finally overwhelmed Tuesday evening. MUJAO forces had been reinforced with heavy weapons and fighters from AQIM. MNLA did not provide reinforcements to its local fighters. By the end, the fight was completely unbalanced in favor of MUJAO.

A local government official who led the defense of Ménaka was killed along with eleven other relatives. A local resident said that the men who defended Menaka were local people who had only associated with MNLA recently. According to him, the locals fought primarily to defend their town.

Tonight Menaka is a defeated city. While the combatants have fallen silent, the dead are are still being discovered.
