On 10 February 2021, suspected Islamist militants launched an attack against a military base housing U.N. Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali (MINUSMA) personnel near the town of Kéréna, located in the central Mopti region. Peacekeeping soldiers at the base responded and repelled the attack, during which at least 20 peacekeepers were injured. While Islamist militant groups linked to al-Qaeda and the Islamic State frequently perpetrate such attacks, no group has thus far claimed responsibility.
