Algeria security forces kill two terrorists, capture two in the north

Algerian counter-terrorism troops on Monday killed two terrorists and captured two others in the locality of Dellys, in the province of Boumerdes, 70 km eastern Algiers, said Defense Ministry in a statement.

The operation was the outcome of accurate exploitation of tips, as two Kalashnikov machine guns and two automatic pistols were retrieved, the source said.

Despite remarkable improvement in the security situation in Algeria, the eastern region of the capital, notably the provinces of Boumerdes, Bouira, Tizi Ouzou and Jijel, as well as southernmost areas near the border with Mali, Niger an Libya, are still harboring few number of terrorist groups that the Algerian army says is determined "to track down and eradicate."
