The government has reiterated the commitment of the National People's Army to destroy these criminal gangs, who sometimes take the form of dormant cells being reactivated in the Sahara. These cells pose great concern for Algerian civilians.

It's been more than a year since the attack on the Gas Site in the Amenas, Tiguentourine area on January 16th, 2013. Both al-Qaeda operatives and allied terrorists have returned to Southern Algeria, where they plan to launch terrorist attacks against the country's interests.

Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb have derived different factions operating in the Sahel Region is targeting Algeria due to its commitment to counter terrorism along with all of its funding sources in all over the world.
