Terrorist activities happen in different countries of the world. The criminals dwell in illegal activities like mass murder, ambush, and kidnapping. They also engage in other illegal business activities, such as money laundering, human trafficking and many more.

Crime is a breach of human rights and a violation of laws in countries around the world.

The United Nations Security Council has been at the forefront in fighting the vice. It has adopted relevant resolutions in its quest to stop terrorism.

This development came following the current terrorist attacks taking place around the world, especially in Africa and Arabian countries. Constant attacks by the Boko Haram of West Africa, Al-Shabaab Militia in East Africa, and Al-Qaeda have resulted in the loss of lives and displacement of innocent citizens. The attacks have also led to the destruction of properties worth millions and billions of dollar.

Fund-raising to stop terrorism

The United Nations Security Council has been advocating for peaceful co-existence. Also, the council has been concentrating on fund-raising to stop the activities of these illegal groups.

According to reports, some non-profit organizations are funding their illicit trading activities on charcoal, minerals like diamond and oil, narcotic drugs and many more.

The council’s reports revealed that there are members of the society operating privately with the criminals. They engage in illegal businesses with these terrorist groups.

Historically, most of the terrorist groups started as an association, which were formed as a result of security challenges. Unfortunately, they later turned rebellious to the government, engaging in different kinds of terrorist activities.

War against terrorism

Elsewhere, the world has come up with an idea on how to curb the rising terrorism, which dates back to historical injustices. Most of the terrorist were paid to carry suicidal duties, like killing politicians who downplayed or those seen as a threat in the political arena.

Terrorist groups are also responsible for genocide attacks. These attacks have resulted in the loss of lives and destruction of properties in different countries of the world. However, the government has tightened its belt to counter these terrorist attacks. For instance, the Rwanda forces reportedly killed 19 terrorists, who killed 14 citizens of the country.

Mean, there have been investigative supports collaborating with other bodies to help drive high levels and counter-terror groups.
