Military formation attacked in buffer zone in Tataouine

A military formation deployed in the Larzat buffer zone (Tataouine governorate) was attacked by armed individuals in two 4X4 vehicles. The suspects were carrying out smuggling operations between Tunisian and Libyan traffickers, the Department of National Defense said Thursday.

The ministry said, in a statement posted on its official website, that the military intervened after the newly established electronic surveillance system spotted a tank truck, eight trucks and two 4X4 vehicles approaching the sand wall, coming from Libya.

The same source said that after being attacked, the military formation reacted by setting fire to the tanker truck and the 8 other trucks carrying fuel.

Four smugglers have been arrested, according to the department, which indicates that the others have fled to Libya.
