(TAP) – Four suspected Takfiri elements, including two women, were apprehended on Monday in Ben Guerdene (in the Medenine governorate).

They admitted during interrogation of adopting the Takfiri ideology and communicating with Takfiri elements in Tunisia and abroad.

They further confessed of intending to help extremist elements in one of the neighbouring countries to illegally enter Tunisia.

The black flag of “Daesh” and a 12.7mm bullet casing were seized after raiding the house of one of the suspects, the Interior Ministry said Tuesday in a press release.

After consultation with the Public Prosecutor, a legal action was initiated over suspicion of belonging to a terrorist organisation.

Moreover, the National Guard’s Research and Investigation unit in Sidi Bouzid conducted a raid on a house of a Takfiri element where a book inciting for jihad and weapon production manuals were seized.

Two other Takfiri elements active in social networks were arrested in Bizerte and Tebourba (Manouba governorate). A third takfiri element was apprehended in Sijoumi.
