N’Djamena, Chad – (African Boulevard News) – A horrific attack on a southern village in Chad has left 17 innocent civilians dead. The attack was carried out by a group of armed men near the border with the Central African Republic. The Gore prosecutor’s office confirmed the news on Thursday, revealing that the attack took place on Monday.
The village was targeted by a group of heavily armed men, who opened fire indiscriminately, killing 17 people and injuring several others. The attack has sent shockwaves throughout the region, with locals understandably shaken by the brutal nature of the attack.
The authorities have launched an investigation into the incident, with the hope of bringing those responsible to justice. In the meantime, security has been beefed up in the area to prevent further attacks.
The attack is believed to have been carried out by rebels from the neighboring Central African Republic, who have been known to launch cross-border attacks in the past. The situation in Chad has been volatile in recent years, with ongoing conflicts in neighboring countries spilling over into Chad.
The government has condemned the attack and has vowed to do everything in its power to bring those responsible to justice. The President of Chad, Idriss Deby Itno, has expressed his condolences to the families of the victims and has pledged to do everything possible to ensure that such attacks do not occur in the future.
The attack has once again highlighted the need for greater security in the region. The government of Chad has been working to improve security in the area, but more needs to be done to ensure the safety of innocent civilians.
The UN has also condemned the attack, describing it as a “senseless and barbaric act”. The UN Secretary-General, Antonio Gutteres, has called for those responsible to be held accountable and for measures to be taken to prevent such attacks in the future.
The attack in Chad is a tragic reminder of the ongoing conflicts in the region and the need for greater efforts to promote peace and stability. The international community must work together to address the root causes of these conflicts and to bring an end to the violence that is affecting so many innocent people.
