In Burkina Faso, 10 members of the country’s armed forces were killed and more than 50 were injured in an attack by al-Qaeda-linked Jamaat Nusrat Al-Islam Wal-Muslimin (JNIM) militants. The goal of the terrorists was the garrison in the city of Djibo.
The militants fired at the object of government troops with artillery mines, and then launched an assault. The servicemen put up fierce resistance and eliminated eighteen attackers during a shootout.
However, the jihadists managed to seize weapons and, according to some reports, freed more than sixty supporters of terrorist from the city prison. The security forces sent additional forces to Jibo to search for the terrorists.
Also, DNIM militants published materials about their activities in neighboring Mali. Jihadists carried out two attacks at once in Segou district. On October 21, two policemen were killed in an attack on a checkpoint at the hands of jihadists. In the same district, the militants found and burned six motorcycles, which allegedly belonged to the government military and fighters of the Russian so-called. PMC “Wagner”.
In August of this year, terrorists made unsubstantiated claims of terrorist attacks against Russians in Mali.
