A patrol from the military detachment of Solle was ambushed Thursday near Solle in the province of Loroum, the North Region, and two soldiers and four army auxiliaries were killed.
On the same day, members of the gendarmerie in operation in Ouanobe in the province of Sanmatenga, the Centre-North Region, were also attacked by terrorists.
The security situation in Burkina Faso had worsened since 2015, with terrorist attacks killing more than 1,000 people and displacing more than one million others in the West African nation.
