The country has been plagued since 2017 by jihadist violence that has already killed nearly 4,000 people, according to the NGO Acled, and forced about 800,000 people to flee. travel has been restricted since the beginning of the month, due to an increase in violence. After a major attack last year, however, the violence had decreased in intensity, partly due to the deployment of regional military forces.

A deadly attack on the port city of Palma in March 2021 forced the French energy giant TotalEnergies to suspend a 16.5 billion euro natural gas project just a few kilometers away.
