Islamic terrorists in Africa attacked a village in Burkina Faso last Wednesday, murdering more than 50 people. The village in Madjoari consists of 15,000 to 20,000 inhabitants.
"[Wednesday's attack] is the bloodiest jihadist assault in the country since one carried out a year ago in Solhan, in the northeast, which killed 132 people," Breitbart reports.
"Residents of Madjoari attempting to flee a jihadist blockade of their village were 'targeted' by the gunmen near a bridge, where they were shot to death, said Colonel Hubert Yameogo, governor of the eastern region."
"One witness noted that the gunmen intercepted and then executed the victims, all of whom were male."
Madjoari was also attacked on May 14, which saw seven people injured and 17 murdered by Islamic terrorists.
On May 19, terrorists attacked "a military detachment in Madjoari, resulting in 20 soldiers injured and 11 killed.
"Madjoari is one of several towns placed under blockade by jihadists in the north and east of Burkina Faso, others being Djibo and Titao," Breitbart reports.
These are the latest attacks in the "ongoing jihadist assaults over the past seven years perpetrated by groups affiliated with Al-Qaeda and the Islamic State."
More than 2,000 civilians and soldiers have been killed and approximately 2 million people have been displaced in the northern and eastern regions of Burkina Faso since 2015. The repeated attacks are also increasing hunger in the region, exacerbating supply chain issues as many locals face starvation.
