Fight against terrorism.. Defeat of a criminal attack in Algiers
Within the framework of the fight against terrorism and thanks to intelligence exploitation, the security services of the Ministry of National Defence succeeded, during the current week, in dismantling a network made up of three (03) elements of support for terrorist group active in the heights of Tipaza. After investigations, it turned out that one of the arrested elements of the said network had delivered a homemade bomb, which he planted in a specific place around the Eucalyptus Commune in the Capital.
This explosive device, which was used to carry out a criminal attack in Algiers, was located and defused yesterday, 02nd March 2021, by a special intervention group of PNA dispatched to the scene.
