The Egyptian Alliance for Human Rights and Development condemns the terrorist attack against peacekeepers in Mali, which resulted in the injury of 7 peacekeepers as a result of the explosion of a homemade mine while their vehicle was passing on Friday, July 9, 2021 in the Mopti region in central Mali. The coalition highlights that improvised explosive devices are the preferred weapon of terrorists against the Malian, French and international forces.
The Egyptian Alliance for Human Rights and Development also highlights that such incidents contribute to a sharp deterioration of the security situation in Mali and threatens the stability of the country.
It is worth noting that Mali has been suffering from turmoil since 2012, with the outbreak of independent and jihadist rebellions in the north, which have led to the deaths of thousands of civilians.
The Egyptian Alliance for Human Rights and Development demands the elimination of terrorism that destabilizes the country and the region, and calls upon the government and the international community to do its utmost to confront the threats to peace, stability and unity in Mali.
