    The army organized operations in the areas where the attacks were carried out and demanded local people to cooperate with the soldiers.

    The state of emergency continues in seven of the 13 regions of the country.

    More than 500 people have been killed in the attacks organized by terrorist organizations in Burkina Faso in the last four years.

    The attacks, which previously intensified in the north of the country, gradually shifted to the eastern regions of the border of Togo and Benin.
