United Nations: Now even the United Nations forces are no longer safe from armed groups. Due to this, the atmosphere of panic is increasing in all the countries of the world. In the latest incident, members of an armed group in eastern Congo opened fire on a UN helicopter on Friday, wounding two South African peacekeepers. From this, the expanding scope of armed groups can be estimated. Even at sea, such groups are continuously targeting cargo ships. Surprisingly, such groups are also equipped with sophisticated weapons and drones.

UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric said the UN peacekeeping department suspected the attack was carried out by the M23 rebel group in the Karuba area of ‚Äč‚ÄčNorth Kivu province in the Masisi region. More than 120 groups in eastern Congo are fighting for power, land and precious mineral resources, leading to decades of violence. Armed groups have long waged a violent campaign in the resource-rich region and have been accused of mass killings.

UN condemned the attack

This conflict between such groups escalated in late 2021 when M23 launched attacks to seize territory. The group reportedly has the support of neighboring country Rwanda. The government of Rwanda, however, continues to deny this. Dujarric said the helicopter that was targeted somehow landed safely in Goma and the peacekeepers were being treated. UN peacekeeping chief in Congo Bintou Keita has condemned the attack on the plane. (AP)
