(TAP) - Support cells for terror groups were dismantled by EL Aouina National Guard unit of investigation into terrorist crimes.

Members of the support cells are locals in villages surrounding Jebel Selloum in the governorate of Kasserine and Sidi Ali Ben Oun in the governorate of Sidi Bouzid.

The Interior Ministry Friday said fourteen people, including a young woman, were apprehended.

This is part of ongoing investigations after the recent arrest by the national army of a Jund Al-Khilafa (soldiers of the caliphate) brigade member.

Eleven people were held in custody and summonses to appear before the court were issued for three others.
