Terrorists used IEDs in Algeria to explode again in the mountainous heights in the centre of the country, killing two soldiers and injuring another.
The Algerian Ministry of Defense announced, in a statement, that “the two soldiers, Fouad Meziane and Salah El-Din Omar, were killed in the field, and the soldier, Deeb Badreddine, was slightly wounded.”
The statement pointed out that “the criminal operation took place, yesterday, Friday, after the explosion of a homemade mine during a search operation in the area of Tachta Zuqagha in the Wilayat of Ain Defla (central) in the first military region.”
After condoling the families of the two victims, the Algerian army chief of staff reiterated his country’s determination to continue its efforts in combating terrorism, and his insistence on “hunting down the remnants of these criminals and eliminating them wherever they are found across the entire national territory.”
