But one foreign security source told the AFP news agency the scale of the most recent assault was "unprecedented" in Timbuktu.
"We've never seen an attack like this", an official from the Timbuktu governorate told AFP.
The UN's MINUSMA force confirmed that one of its peacekeepers had been killed in Saturday's four-hour rocket, mortar and auto bomb attack at worldwide troops' "Super Camp" neighboring Timbuktu's airport, and around a dozen were wounded. It has more than 11,000 troops and 1,741 police, and is considered one of the UN's most unsafe missions. "Shell fire, rockets, and explosions and perhaps even suicide bombers".
Mali's unrest stems from a 2012 Tuareg separatist uprising against the state which was exploited by jihadists in order to take over key cities in the north.
MINUSMA supports political processes in Mali, in addition to carrying out a number of security-related tasks, and this was the largest attack against the Mission since its deployment five years ago, and the third this month.
Extremists linked to Al-Qaeda took control of the desert north of Mali in early 2012, but were largely driven out in a French-led military operation launched in January 2013.
