Al-Qaida Militants Kill Soldiers in Algeria

AQIM (Al-Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb) killed 14 soldiers of Algeria in a deadly attack on Saturday night. This is said to be the deadliest attacks that has ever been attempted by the terrorist organization on the Algerian forces. However, three al-Qaida militants were also killed in the counter attack.

AQIM is the North African branch of al-Qaida and it attacked the military troops in an ambush in the Tizi Ouzou Mountains. These mountains are located 75 miles away towards the east of the country's capital Algiers.

This deadly attack is linked to the Presidential elections in the country. President Abdelaziz Bouteflika was re-elected a few days ago and he is looking forward to completing his fourth term in office. He is a symbol of security for the North African OPEC state. 

"On their way back from securing the presidential election, the unit… came under attack," the Defense Ministry said in a statement posted by APS.

But Al-Qaida militants are not in favor of President Abdelaziz Bouteflika. The Algerian army had killed at least 37 militants belonging to al-Qaida during the past three months.

Algerian security specialist Rahmani Anis told Reuters, "This attack is a response to setbacks for AQIM, which has lost several of its militants in recent months. AQIM also tried to disrupt the election but it failed."
