“We are concerned that ADF killed 15 civilians in our area. They seriously injured several others who have been rushed to nearby hospitals for treatment,” Maleki Mulala, coordinator of the New Congolese Civil Society, said in a statement.

He said following the massacre, activities are paralyzed in villages where the tragedy occurred.

A joint force from Congo and Uganda has been hunting ADF rebels in eastern Congo since November 2021.

Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni said Wednesday that since operations began, troops have killed 508 ADF rebels although remnants continue to attack villages where they kill innocent civilians.

ADF rebels originated in Uganda in 1990 when they attempted to overthrow Museveni’s regime but were overpowered by the army and fled into the jungles of the Congo.
