Fight against foreign backed terrorism: Tunisia

Tunisia’s Prime Minister Ali Larayedh says the country has made progress in dismantling terrorist cells.

“There is progress in dismantling the terrorist networks. We are confronted by small groups who practice terrorism and have links to terrorist parties,” Larayedh said on Thursday.

“Members from the Tunis Salafist movement have connections with local and foreign terrorist groups. They are encouraging armed rebellion against the state through violence and terrorism,” the Tunisian premier stated.

Tunisian authorities arrested over 200 people including the supporters of the Ansar al-Sharia group on May 19, during clashes that erupted when the group called on its followers to assemble in the capital’s suburb of Ettadhamen.

The Tunisian government recently banned Ansar al-Sharia from holding its annual congress in Kairouan, the capital of Kairouan Governorate, saying the group posed a “threat to public order.”

Larayedh also warned, “We will continue to pursue them and all people who practice violence or have links with the terrorists.”

One Response to Fight against foreign backed terrorism: Tunisia

    The West which is backing Syrian terrorists to undermine the Syrian government, accuses the Tunisian government of ‘doing nothing to curb the rise of Salafist groups’…

    Tunisia at war with ‘international terrorism’

    May 9, 2013

    Press reports warned that Tunisia was “at war with international terrorism” after the government revealed that jihadists being pursued by the army have ties to Al-Qaeda and the Islamist rebellion in Mali.

    French-language daily Le Temps raised fears of “a spiral of deadly violence similar to the one that ravaged Algeria” during its so-called black decade of civil war in the 1990s.

    “It is a nightmare scenario that haunts Tunisians,” said the newspaper, which is strongly critical of the ruling Islamist party Ennahda.

    Le Temps blamed the “policy of impunity and the complacency of the authorities, who encouraged the terrorists to continue,” accusing the government of doing nothing to curb the rise of Salafist groups since the revolution in January 2011.

    Le Quotidien called on Tunisia’s leaders to “take the bull by the horns,” saying “the moment is very grave, and the fight against terrorism has inevitably become a collective responsibility.”

    The daily also criticised Ennahda, saying that “the proliferation of jihadist clans across the country… was able to take place under the complacent and complicit eye” of the government.

    “Tunisia is now at war with international terrorism,” announced Le Presse, which urged the media, political opposition and government to work together “to not help the enemy or undermine the morale of the soldiers fighting them.”

    “It is no longer appropriate to wash one’s dirty linen in public, even less so to continue mud slinging in the sight of all,” said the paper, referring to the negative climate and accusations that have hampered political progress in Tunisia.

    The army last week intensified the hunt for two groups of jihadists on the Algerian border, who the interior ministry said this week were veterans of the Islamist rebellion in Mali with links to Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb.

    So far, 16 soldiers and national guards have been wounded, some seriously, by home-made bombs planted by one of the groups in the remote Mount Chaambi region.
