(TAP) - A support and supply cell to terrorist groups holed up on Mount Chaambi (Kasserine) was broken up by the El Aouina National Guard terror investigation team.

According to an Interior Ministry press release, the cell is composed of "two brother loggers who have established contact with the terrorists holed up on the heights of Mount Chaambi and have agreed to supply them with food, clothing and phone cards since the end of 2015."

They acknowledged that they participated in the laying of landmines on the mountain trails and the terrorist attack in August 2016 in the Jebel Semama, the Kasserine Governorate.

Three soldiers were killed in the explosion of an armoured vehicle, the ministry said.

The suspects were placed in custody.
