 TERRORISMUS: Jihadisten Aktivität in Afrika infographic

Der Kampf gegen Jihadisten verlagert sich nach Afrika

Graphic News

March 5, 2019 -- Während die Vereinigten Staaten und ihre Partner den Kampf gegen die Gruppen des sogenannten Islamischen Staats in Syrien und Irak einschränken und sich aus Afghanistan zurückziehen wollen, verlagert sich der Fokus der internationalen Jihadisten immer mehr nach Afrika.

With less need for counterterrorism resources in the Middle East or Afghanistan, Africa’s militant movements are likely to come more onto the radar of external powers, as well as become a magnet for foreign fighters, according to U.S. security thinktank Stratfor.

The United States has been particularly active in the Horn of Africa, using its base in Djibouti to support operations against al-Shabaab and IS militants in Somalia.

In West Africa, the U.S. military’s Africa Command (AFRICOM) has continued to develop regional logistical capabilities that indicate a longer-term commitment to supporting counterterrorism operations there.
