7 “terrorists” killed in a military operation in northeastern Algeria

The ministry stated, in a statement, that the seven terrorists were killed during a “search and combing operation in the Wadi El-Dawwar forest in the state of Skikda in the Fifth Military District.”

The ministry added that the operation, which is still ongoing, “made it possible to retrieve 6 Kalashnikov submachine guns and a scoped rifle.”

According to the Algerian News Agency, the seized items included “significant quantities of ammunition and communication devices, in addition to clothing, medicine and other items.”

On January 1, the Ministry of Defense announced that the operations carried out by the army during the year 2021 enabled it to neutralize 23 “terrorists” and arrest 222 members of extremist groups.

And in late January, the Algerian army announced that a clash took place in the far south of the Algerian desert near the border with Niger between a military unit and extremist militants, killing two of its soldiers, one of whom was a lieutenant, in addition to two militants.
