Algerian army seizes 11 missiles near border with Mali
Algerian military discovered a hideout containing 11 missiles near the border with Mali, the Defense Ministry announced Thursday.

"After a search operation in Bordj Badji Mokhtar town, an ammunition cache was found containing 11 anti-tank missiles," said the ministry without disclosing any further details.

The operation comes a day after an operation in the same area in which the army uncovered "an ammunition cache containing 20 mortar rounds and 120 kg of ammonium nitrate that is used in explosive manufacturing".

In November, the ministry also announced a cache containing 41 anti-tank missiles in the same border town was found.

In recent years, Algeria has mobilized its troops on its southern border with Mali, Niger and the eastern border with Tunisia and Libya to prevent the infiltration of terrorist groups and smuggling of arms.
