Explosion in a house in Kelibia: owner, his wife and her friend placed in custody

The public prosecutor’s office at the judicial counter-terrorism division, on Saturday, ordered to place in custody the owner of the house that saw an explosion in Kelibia, his wife and her friend who is married to a Takfiri imprisoned in the United Arab Emirates in a terrorist case.

An explosion occurred Friday in a house in Kelibia, Nabeul governorate without causing casualties.

The explosion caused the window panes to burst and caused some material damage inside the house, according to eyewitnesses and Nabeul governor Salwa Khiari.

The 35-year-old homeowner is known for his religious radicalism, while his wife, 26, was suspected of belonging to a terrorist organisation, according to a statement from the Interior Ministry.

The explosion is due to a highly hand-made explosive mix, spokesman for the judicial counter-terrorism division SofiAne Selliti told TAP.

According to the first elements of the investigation, the owner of the house had adopted Takfiri thinking since 2013.

He maintained permanent contacts with terrorists elements from the city of Kelibia who are currently in Syria, he pointed out.

In collusion with these terrorist elements, the owner of the house had also planned, a year ago, terrorist attacks against a security patrol, added Selliti.

In addition, he recently purchased raw materials used in the manufacture of explosive shells for the purpose of committing terrorist attacks.

According to Selliti, the Public Prosecutor’s Office at the Judicial Counter-Terrorism Division has transferred the case to the Terrorism and Organised Crime Investigation Unit at the Directorate General of National Security of El Gorjani.
