First female general in Algeria
After Morocco's second ever female city mayor of Marrakech, Algeria has now its first female general. The Jerusalem Post reports that "Colonel Fatma-Zohra Aardjoun was named a general at the National Defense Ministry, in a promotion ceremony for the National Army, along with seventeen other male colonels. Four generals were also promoted to the rank of major-general."
