The hottest hostage rescue operation in Burkina Fa

  • Detail

The rescue operation of Burkina Faso hostages ended, and two Chinese citizens successfully escaped from danger. According to CNR Beijing News on January 17, the voice of China "Zongheng" reported that at about 30 p.m. local time at 7 p.m. on the 15th, armed elements attacked the brilliant hotel in Ouagadougou, the capital of Burkina Faso, and took the staff in the hotel hostage. Subsequently, a station called "Jihad" claimed in Arabic that members of the "Islamic Maghreb al Qaida", the North African branch of Al Qaida, had caused the attack. After the attack, the security forces of Burkina Faso rushed to the scene immediately, surrounded the hotel with tanks and armored vehicles, and exchanged fire with terrorists. At 1 a.m. on the 16th, with the help of U.S. and French special forces, Burkina Faso's security forces began to launch a further attack on the terrorists in the hotel, and the rescue operation ended a few hours later

the Ministry of interior of Burkina Faso said that 126 hostages were rescued in this operation, of which 33 were injured. The attack killed 23 people in the hotel, and the victims came from 18 countries. Security forces killed four militants in the hotel and nearby areas. In addition, the Chinese Embassy in Mali confirmed that the hostages, including two Chinese citizens, were safe and sound

President kapore of Burkina Faso strongly condemned the terrorist attack in Ouagadougou as a barbaric act on the 16th. He called on all the people of Burkina Faso to unite and resolutely fight against terrorists. Kapore also praised the bravery of Burkina Faso's security forces and French and U.S. special forces in participating in the hostage rescue operation. The Burkina Faso government announced on the afternoon of the 16th that it would set up a three-day mourning period. A message from the Ministry of interior of Burkina Faso said that the terrorist attacks had been brought under control, but warned that terrorists might have infiltrated other places

after the terrorist attack on the Ouagadougou hotel in the capital of Burkina Faso, leaders of many countries delivered speeches and statements to condemn and extend condolences to the families of the victims. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry called for an end to hostage taking violence in a statement. He said that the United States will pay close attention to developments and provide emergency services most needed by American citizens. French President Hollande said that terrorist attacks on poverty are very hateful. He fully supports the attack of Burkina Faso's security forces on terrorists, and supports President kapore and the people of Burkina Faso

in November last year, another West African country, Mali, also suffered a similar hotel attack that led to the improvement of the overall level of experimental instruments and equipment in important fields. That incident was also committed by the North African branch of Al Qaida, which finally killed 20 people. The continuous attacks of the North African branch of Al Qaida have brought great security threats to many countries in West Africa. Why will Burkina Faso become the target of terrorists this time

Burkina Faso is a landlocked country in western Africa. It is an economically underdeveloped region in Africa, and the situation has been in turmoil in recent years. He Wenping, director of the Africa Research Office of the West Asia and Africa Institute of the Academy of Social Sciences, said that the terrorist forces in this country were not prominent at first, but now the rampant terrorist activities in this area are directly related to the Libyan civil war

after the Libyan civil war, these organizations began to slowly infiltrate south of the Sahara, such as Mali. All are local rebels or anti-government organizations who are dissatisfied with the government and think they are marginalized. Samples can be taken from inside and outside for experimental communication and combination. Because many local anti-government armed forces and organizations had no source of funds in the past, and had been lurking in the dark to engage in some underground activities, which was tepid and did not pose a great threat to the government. Now, with these external base branches, generally speaking, they are very rich. For example, the Islamic state has strong funds and can recruit soldiers. As soon as it has funds, it will go to sub Saharan countries, such as Mali and Burkina Faso. When it infiltrates, it is easy to collude with local institutions

the two terrorist attacks in Mali and Burkina Faso were against Westerners. He Wenping pointed out that it is obviously much easier to operate in western countries than to launch attacks in this region

these countries have several characteristics, one is chaos, the other is poverty. They are all least developed countries. Development problems have existed for a long time, so there is such a mass base and soil. If everyone has enough food and clothing, it is difficult for them to find these support forces. In addition, Mali and Burkina Faso, the central government, also came to power after a coup and re-election in the past two years, so the ruling foundation of its own regime, the Jinan test reciprocating tension and compression experimental machine, is not particularly solid in the range of instrument operation speed, and its control ability over the country and all aspects of military and police control ability are weak. At this time, it can only rely on the power of France, the United States and the United Nations forces
