Two terrorists surrender to the Algerian army forces
Two “terrorists” on Monday surrendered to the military authorities in the southernmost region of Algeria, Defense Ministry said on Tuesday in a statement.
The two terrorists were identified as Mustapha. I, alias Zakaria, and Lahcen. D, alias Abu Youcef, who joined terrorist groups in 2015 and 2016 respectively, specified the statement.
Algeria has opened safe routes along its southern border to encourage Algerian militants who joined terrorist fiefs in the Sahel to lay down arms in exchange of fair trials.
The North African nation has deployed tens of thousands of troops on the southern and eastern borderline, in a bid to thwart the intrusion of terrorists and arms, amid instability in neighboring Mali and Libya.
