The head of the Islamic State in the Great Sahara neutralized by French forces

TERRORISM – The head of the jihadist group Islamic State in the Great Sahara (EIGS), Adnan Abou Walid al-Sahraoui, has been “neutralized” by French forces (“killed”, said the Elysee), announced Emmanuel Macron on Twitter in the night from Wednesday to Thursday.

“This is another major success in our fight against terrorist groups in the Sahel,” added the French president. The EIGS is considered to be the author of most of the attacks in the tri-border area, straddling Mali, Niger and Burkina Faso.
