imgAlgerian army troops killed two armed militants in two separate operations in Tizi Ouzou and El Oued provinces, said a statement of Defense Ministry.

“A terrorist was killed on Monday amid ongoing dragging operation being conducted in the forest of Sidi Ali Bounab, in the province of Tizi Ouzou by army forces, while a Kalashnikov machine gun and ammunition were retrieved,” according to the statement.

A couple of days ago, army troops already killed in this same area three militants, including an explosives expert, and retrieved arms and ammunition.

Elsewhere, in the southeast province of El Oued, near the Tunisian border, army forces killed on Sunday a “dangerous terrorist, nicknamed M. Toufik,” in a counter-terrorism operation being conducted there, the source added.

As many as seven militants were killed so far since the beginning of this operation.

Meanwhile, 8 terrorist bunkers containing home-made mines, explosives, detonators and foodstuffs were discovered and destroyed in the provinces Tizi Ouzou, Ain Defla, and Skikda, the source added.
