Algeria on Monday inaugurated a new air base in the southernmost province of Tamenrasset, as part of the North African nation’s efforts to secure its border.

The deployment of Hassi Tiririne air base was officially inaugurated by Deputy Defense Minister, Army Chief of Staff, Lieutenant General Ahmed Gaid Salah, a statement of Defense Ministry said.

This new military installation comes at a time where Algeria is facing constant terrorist threats, including the intrusion of weapons and terrorists.

Several arm bunkers have been discovered in recent months along the borderline with Mali, Niger and Libya, while many terrorists were either captured alive or killed.

Located in a region plagued by unprecedented security and political instability, experts believe Algeria faces ongoing terrorist threats.
