(TAP) – Two Takfiris, originally from the governorate of EL Kef, were arrested in connection with a counter terrorism investigation.

The two men were planning an attack on a barracks, the Interior Ministry Sunday said in a press release.

"The two individuals were planning attacks on a military site or a security forces unit," it indicated.

The suspects confessed to being tasked by leaders of terrorist organisation Daesh to target security or military personnel in El Kef and take their weapons and ammunition.

The Interior Ministry also said the two suspects have embraced the Takfiri thinking and communicated via internet with members of Daesh.

"The two Takfiris glorified terrorism and terrorist groups Ansar al-Sharia and Daesh,” further reads the press release.
