Press Release


Today, Thursday, November 18, 2021, the Egyptian Coalition for Human Rights and Development (ECHRD) condemned the terrorist attack carried out by a group of terrorist militants in Niger near the border with Mali, which led to killing 25 civilians and burning some cars.

The terrorist attack took place in the districts of Tillia and Tahoua and was led by unidentified gunmen on Niger army camps in the first district, and the second on public facilities and set them on fire. These attacks are the second in Niger this month. On November 5, the Niger Ministry of Defense announced the killing of 11 soldiers and the loss of 9 others after a terrorist attack on an army site in the west of the country, during the deployment of the targeted soldiers to ensure the safety of thousands of villagers who returned to their homes, after massacres that killed dozens of civilians at the hands of terrorists.

It is worth noting that the frequency of terrorist attacks that aim to kill, kidnap and loot is rising day after day and has become part of the daily life in the West Coast region of Africa, where rebels and terrorist groups loyal to Al-Qaeda, ISIS and Boko Haram are spreading.

The ECHRD affirms its total rejection of all terrorist acts that affect human security and the right to life in all parts of the world.
