New clashes took place this in the city of Palma, in the North- East Mozambique. They intervened three weeks after a major jihadist attack that made dozens of deaths and thousands of displaced.

The President Mozambican Filipé Nyusi had stated last week that the Jihadists had been "hunted" of Palma and that a large number of them were dead. But more than ever the city and its surroundings seem under the threat since new clashes took place in Palma. There has also been a military source of simultaneous attacks against two localities within a radius of 200 kilometers.
