Luta contra os jiadistas mudou-se para África
March 5, 2019 -- Quando os Estados Unidos e seus aliados reduzem as operações contra o chamado Estado Islâmico na Síria e Iraque e pretendem retirar do Afeganistão, o centro da atividade jiadista global muda-se para África.
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.
