Abstract
The article deals with the situation in the sphere of security in the Maghreb countries - Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia. The emergence of new and expansion of old seats of tension in the region, especially in Libya and the Sahel zone, creates favorable conditions for the growth of the activities of terrorist organizations. Algeria, as a regional leader, leads not only a fight against terrorism in North Africa but also the peace process in neighboring Libya. Morocco which is implementing political and socioeconomic reforms, has a stabilizing effect on the region, as well as is making efforts for distribution of values of moderate Islam in North Africa and in a zone of the African Sahel. Tunisia has the most vulnerable position caused by an economic crisis and by remaining sympathies of nearly a half of the population for parties of an Islamic orientation, by weakness of national army and intelligence agencies. Growth of jihadist threat demands association of anti-terrorist efforts as at regional, and world level.
