ALGIERS, ALGERIA (Catholic Online) - An anti-terrorism offensive launched afterwards by army troops in Iboudrar─Źne and Ouacifs and the southeast of Tizi Ouzou is ongoing. Helicopters and other heavy artillery are being used to destroy mines that terrorists have implemented to secure their stronghold.

Even if the operation successfully routs the terrorist groups, the people in this region will still live under the dark memories during the 1990s, when nefarious groups held sway over the Kabylia Mountains.

The Algerian army had pounded the region in order to secure the area during the tumultuous days of the presidential election. The national emir of Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb, or AQIM, Abdelmalek Droukde Abu Musaab Abdelwadoud, had succeeded in the summer of 2004 to Nabil Sahraoui, who was killed by the army in Kabylia.

The event was a harbinger to terrorist acts against national security services. The region has become a haven to terrorist groups because of its dense forest. Since the change of status from the salafist groups for the predication and combat, or GSPC that became Al Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb AQIM in January 25th, 2007 this terrorist nebula was organized in "military regions" comprising southern Algeria and the Sahel-Saharan region.
