The Egyptian Alliance for Human Rights & Development Condemns Terrorist Attack in Northern Burkina Faso
The Egyptian Alliance for Human Rights and Development condemns the terrorist attack in northern Burkina Faso that targeted civilians in the village of Salhan in Yaga region in the north of the country, leaving more than 100 people dead, including 7 children, in addition to wounding several others.
The Egyptian Alliance for Human Rights and Development confirms that the security situation has deteriorated sharply in Burkina Faso as of late, as the number of terrorist attacks, notably the attacks targeting civilians in isolated villages in the north of the country, has doubled, where armed groups are active, some of whom owe allegiance to al-Qaeda or ISIS.
The Egyptian Alliance for Human Rights and Development affirms the necessity of eliminating terrorism that destabilizes the country and the region, and calls upon the government and the international community to confront the situation in the Sahel region, and the need to make every effort to “arrest the perpetrators of this crime and bring them to justice.”
