Algerian security forces killed at least two suspected militants in the Chaoune area of Derrag commune (Médéa province) on Thursday, July 16. The incident reportedly occurred as part of an ongoing counter-terrorism operation targeting militant groups in the region.
Further security operations targeting suspected militants are possible in the area in the near term.
Counter-terrorism operations are conducted on a regular basis in Algeria. The threat of militancy is particularly high in the east and south of the country, as well as the Atlas Mountains region, a former stronghold of Al-Qa'ida in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM).
Individuals in Algeria are advised to remain vigilant for militant activity, report suspicious objects and behavior to police, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities.
