IS Claims Responsibility For Attack on Niger Military Base

The Islamic State group has taken responsibility for an attack on a military base in Niger which left 71 military personnel dead, according to the SITE intelligence group.

“The Islamic State’s West Africa Province (ISWAP) claimed credit for the deadly raid on the Inates military base in Niger,” SITE, which monitors jihadist media, said in a statement. It added that ISWAP said it had killed “over a hundred soldiers”.

Tuesday’s attack in Inates in the western Tillaberi region was the deadliest on Niger’s military since the country’s Islamist militant violence began in 2015.
