The operation was carried out by gendarmerie forces in the Burj Buariric province in the east of the country.
In the statement, which stated that modern methods were used during the investigation, it was shared that the smuggling network in question was destroyed.
The activities of the network, which is stated to be specialized in migrant smuggling within the framework of cross-border organized groups, extend to the Maghreb countries and Europe via Algeria.
As a result of the investigations, 27 network members, 7 of whom were operating on social media from outside Algeria, were identified on the subject of irregular migrant smuggling.
14 detainees were temporarily arrested; Arrest warrants were issued for 13 people, 7 of them international.
The Ministry of Interior announced a few months ago that some organized networks were trying to smuggle irregular migrants to Spain by boat.
Algerian authorities state that the country has become a transit point for African immigrants to the Mediterranean and Europe.
