ISIS Attacks in Congo: TRAGEDY

ISIS Attacks in Congo: BACKGROUND
The attack by the ISIS group comes three weeks after the military made the declaration of martial law in two provinces neighboring Uganda – this includes the one that led to this latest attack – as a forceful response to the increase in violence.
Information about this attack quickly circulated among the media and social networks, and few photographs began to circulate in which some soldiers who arrived in the conflict zone were observed.
VIOLENCE AND PHENOMENA DISPLACES MILLIONS
The population of the Democratic Republic of the Congo suffers not only from violence but also from natural phenomena such as the recent explosion of one of its volcanoes, for this reason the authorities have issued a report on what the similar conditions suffered by other countries.
Violence and natural disasters – often triggered or compounded by the impact of climate change – forced people to move within their countries more than 40 million times last year, the highest number in more than a decade, according to An important group that monitors internal displacement in the world said Thursday.

CRISIS IN POPULATIONS
In its annual report, the Internal Displacement Monitoring Center indicated that 55 million people – a record – were living outside their homes but within their countries at the end of last year, after storms and floods, as well as new and old armed conflicts, will boost figures that have been rising for more than a decade. Some people have moved two or three times.
The Geneva-based center, which is part of the Norwegian Refugee Council NRC, said the number of internally displaced persons was more than double the number of refugees – people fleeing to another country – at the end of the last year. The group cautioned that the numbers likely “significantly underestimate” the phenomenon, as travel restrictions associated with COVID-19 prevented data collection. Filed Under: ISIS Attacks In Congo
“It is shocking that someone was forced to flee their home within their own country every second of the past year,” said NRC Secretary General Jan Egeland. “We are not protecting the world’s most vulnerable people from conflict and disaster.”
Of those displaced at the end of the year, some 48 million people had fled conflict and violence, while 7 million had escaped catastrophes, the group said, amid conflict situations in Congo. Filed Under: ISIS Attacks In Congo
ISIS Attacks in Congo: WARS
The body pointed to escalating violence and increased activity by extremist groups in countries like Ethiopia, Mozambique and Burkina Faso last year, and ongoing wars in countries like the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Syria and Afghanistan. He also mentioned the intense storm seasons in the Americas, Asia and the Pacific, and long rainy seasons in the Middle East and sub-Saharan Africa, and said that these weather events had uprooted millions of people.
In all, the highest number of internally displaced people last year was in China, which suffers from regular floods and where the authorities encourage or demand internal displacement to keep people away from floodwaters. The Philippines and Bangladesh followed. More than 5 million people were displaced within China last year. Filed Under: ISIS Attacks In Congo. With information from AP
