(TAP) - The Interior Ministry announced, on Tuesday evening, the dismantling of a 7-member terrorist cell linked to “El Mnihla” cell and the terrorists who were eliminated in Ben Guerdane last March.

A unit of the National Guard in El Mnihla managed to dismantle a terrorist cell composed of 7 Takfiris who have pledged allegiance to terrorist organisation Daesh and planned to illegally enter Libya, the Ministry said in a statement.

Two terrorists belonging to the same cell were intercepted by National Guard units in the town of "Zokra", Medenine, as they were attempting to illegally cross the Tunisian-Libyan border to join the ranks of Daesh in Sirte, Libya.

The same source said these individuals were planning bloody attacks in Tunisia in retaliation for the recent attack in Ben Guerdane where several terrorists were killed.
