The UN says many lives are lost every day in Africa’s Sahel region because of terrorist attacks there. The warning was made by the UN peacekeeping chief at a Security Council meeting. Jean-Pierre Lacroix says insecurity is hampering children’s education, making primary healthcare inaccessible for many. He says millions of people have also been displaced at a time when covid is raging in the African region. The UN official said the joint force, formed by Chad, Mali, Burkina Faso, Niger, and Mauritania, continues its operations in the Sahel. However, it faces major challenges and now risks losing all gains it has made. The Sahel is among the most volatile regions in Africa, hit by Daesh and al-Qaeda terrorists.
