    JNIM again warns G5 Sahel against supporting “French occupation”

    JNIM formed in March 2017, when several smaller groups including the Sahara branch of al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb, Ansar Dine, Al-Mourabitoun and Katiba Macina merged. JNIM’s leadership under Iyad Ag Ghaly has pledged allegiance to al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri.

    The group is active in Mali and has carried out attacks in Niger, but operations in Burkina Faso are increasing. Two soldiers were killed in two simultaneous nighttime attacks on September 12 in Baraboulé and Nassoumbou, around 120 km east of Dioungani in Burkina Faso’s northern Sahel region that borders Mali. Five soldiers were injured, Infowakat reported. Al-Qaeda social media channels attributed the attacks to JNIM.

    Al-Qaeda-linked militants have also begun to assassinate people seen as collaborating with French forces, according to France 24’s Wassim Nasr.
