Leader of IS-linked Terror Group Killed, Confirms Algerian Security Officials

Algerian counter terrorism troops killed a leader of an Islamic State (IS)-linked terror group overnight Sunday, a security source said on Monday.

Mouloud Dahane, also known as Abu al-Mundir, was killed in Oued Sebt, in the province of Tipaza, by security forces acting on intelligence tips, the source said on condition of anonymity.

A Kalashnikov submachine gun and two grenades were seized in the operation, the source added.

Dahane was believed to be behind recent terrorist attacks in the province of Tipaza, including a bombing that targeted a checkpoint of National Gendarmerie in January.

The source said Dahane was planning to conduct more attacks on military sites in Cherchell of Tipaza province.
