Inside Minister, Kamel Beldjoud said that “solitary criminal hands can be at the beginning of the synchronous episode of around fifty flames in various areas in the wilaya” of Tizi Ouzou, the most influenced region.

Since Monday, enormous flames have begun in different spaces of northern Algeria, especially in the bumpy area of Kabylia, around 100 kilometers east of the capital Algiers.
