Taken on 2014-10-31

A Canadian Armed Forces CF-18 Fighter jet takes off from Kuwait on the first mission over Iraq in support of Operation IMPACT on October 30, 2014. Operation Impact is the name of Canada's contribution to the 2014 military intervention against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. Canadian military action began on 4 September 2014, when the Canadian government announced that it would deploy up to 100 Canadian special forces to Iraq in a non-combat advisory role. It was later confirmed that around 69 forces were operating in Iraq. On 3 October, Canada's role in the intervention increased when Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper announced that Canada would be deploying 9 total aircraft, including 6 combat aircraft to Iraq. Harper also did not rule out Canadian involvement in the American-led intervention in Syria, but only on the condition that Syria's government would approve of it. Canadian airstrikes in Iraq began on 2 November.

Memorial ceremony held in honor of two Blue Helmets from Burkina Faso killed in a suicidal attack in Ber, Timbuktu region, on August 16, 2014. Despite initial security improvements in 2013, the situation in Northern Mali has deteriorated since the beginning of 2014. An increase in incidents involving improvised explosive devices, mostly targeting Malian and international security forces, has impeded the return to normalcy and resumption of economic and development activities.

Ten World Food Programme (WFP) trucks, with two containers each, traveled from El Fasher to Shangil Tobaya to deliver 350 metric tons of food (oil and sorghum) to the Nifasha and Shaddad camps for Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs). The road trip took more than 8 hours due to difficult road conditions and security challenges for the convoy, which was protected by Ethiopian and Rwandan troops from the African Union-United Nations Hybrid Operation in Darfur (UNAMID). UNAMID troops from Rwanda escort a convoy of WFP trucks traveling from El Fasher to Shangil Tobaya.

The Central African Republic conflict is a civil war in the Central African Republic between the Séléka rebel coalition and government forces, which began on 10 December 2012. The conflict arose after rebels accused the government of President François Bozizé of failing to abide by peace agreements signed in 2007 and 2011. Many of the rebel groups were previously involved in the Central African Republic Bush War. This VOA Gallery shows Burundian peacekeepers and other African Union peacekeepers attempting to assuage the unrest.
