Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo have declared cooperative measures against an Islamic State-linked militia located in eastern Congo, which is responsible for a series of recent explosions in Kampala that have killed hundreds of Congolese residents. Congo said special forces from both nations would be sent to recover camps affiliated to the Islamist-inspired Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) militia after coordinated air and artillery strikes on Tuesday. The ADF originated as a Ugandan rebellion but has been based in Congo since the late 1990s, and in mid-2019, professed allegiance to the Islamic State. IS has taken credit for some of the ADF’s attacks, including a recent wave of bombs in Uganda. However, analysts from the United Nations have discovered no proof of IS command and control over ADF activities.
