Tunisia: Security Forces Dismantle IS Terror Cell in Jendouba
IS linked terror cell dismantled after four militants arrested in Tabarka
The Interior Ministry of Tunisia has confirmed that on 15 May, security forces dismantled an Islamic State (IS)-linked terror cell, after they detained at least four suspected militants during a raid operation in Tabarka, in Jendouba governorate. Further anti-terror raids are likely to continue in Tunisia in the near and medium term.
Those operating or residing in Tunisia are reminded to be aware of the threat of terrorism. Exercise a high degree of caution near government and military buildings and personnel. The arrest of IS linked individuals is indicative of the fact that Islamic extremists operate in the country and intend to conduct attacks. Take particular care when visiting densely populated tourist sites. Report any suspicious activity to the authorities and remain vigilant.
