Nine people were killed in an attack by terrorists on a Malian refugee camp, in western Niger.
And Agence France-Presse quoted local and security sources as saying: “The attack targeted the camp, which is located near a town located 65 km, northwest of Tilia in the Tahoua region on the border with Mali,” explaining that “the heavily armed terrorists arrived on board about ten motorcycles.” They stormed the camp and opened fire before fleeing to Mali.
The sources pointed out that the attack resulted in nine deaths, one person was wounded, and six people are missing.
Tahoua and Tillaberi are located in the border area between Burkina Faso, Mali and Niger, and they are two large unstable regions that have witnessed, since 2017, criminal acts committed by armed groups linked to al-Qaeda and ISIS terrorist organizations.
141 civilians were killed in Telia on March 21, 2021, at the hands of terrorists who carried out several attacks, targeting the towns of Bakura, Antizayan, Warsanat, and many other villages and camps.
