ALGIERS, ALGERIA (Catholic Online) - Algerian security forces have been operating in accordance to information gleaned on the suspicious movements of terrorist groups in the southern part of the country.
The use and implementation of new intelligence has been used by Algerian authorities as an effective means in the fight against terrorism. Rebel groups threaten both the country and its interests, ever since elections were disrupted in the 1990s.
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.

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.
