Since the announcement of the end of the existence of the Daesh terrorist organization in Syria and Iraq, its leaders are trying to find a haven through which to regain some ground and maintain the existence.
Since the announcement of the leader of the organization Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in late April after the absence of 5 years, about the establishment of the so-called Central African state, Burkina Faso in West Africa has seen an increase in the number of terrorist attacks.
Four people were killed and two others wounded in a terrorist attack by armed elements who stormed a church in the north of the country on Sunday (May 26th) in the fourth attack targeting Christians at least during the month.
Many of the attacks were carried out by the organization on May 13, when four people were killed during a religious ceremony in a church in the north of the country. On May 12, six people were killed in an attack on a Catholic church in Dabo in the north as well.
“The deteriorating security situation in Burkina Faso has the magic of terrorist groups, especially the Daesh organization, which seeks to exist in the country, and then carry out its terrorist operations,” said Mohamed Ezzeddine, an African researcher.
In a statement to the Reference, Ezzedine stressed that Daesh is trying to open new fighting fronts and attract new elements to the organization, after defeats in Syria and Iraq. He added that the organized crime groups deployed in that region cooperate with terrorist organizations, especially Daesh in operations, including the smuggling of arms, and the places through which they can carry out their terrorist operations.
