Zitat:Algerian army kills seven Islamists

The Algerian army killed on Friday seven “dangerous” Islamists in the east of the country where it regularly carries out operations that it presents as “anti-terrorist”, said the Ministry of Defense.

The new operation took place in the Chechar region in the Wilaya of Khenchela, about 550 km south-east of Algiers, the ministry said in a statement. [...] In 2017, 91 “terrorists” were killed and 40 others arrested, according to the army. The Algerian authorities use the word “terrorist” to designate armed Islamists.
