Second body found after anticipatory operation, identified as leader of Mount Sammama brigade [Upd 1]

The body of a second terrorist was found Sunday after an anticipatory operation launched Saturday in Mount Sammama, Governorate of Kasserine, said Spokesperson for the Anti-Terror Judicial Pole Sofiene Sliti.

The man was identified as leader of Mount Sammama brigade, an Algerian national, Sliti told TAP. The anticipatory operation was conducted in coordination with EL Aouina National Guard unit of investigation into terrorist crimes.

In a press release, the Interior Ministry said a second body was discovered Sunday by national guards in an ongoing sweeping operation in collaboration with the national army; the terrorist was killed Saturday. A Kalashnikov and a magazine were seized.

Based on intelligence reporting a night-time decent of a terrorist group of 4 to 6 members in Mount Samama to observe the movements of security and military patrols and to get food supplies in nearby homes, the National Guard units staged an ambush on Saturday evening at 5.45 pm in Tarbkhana, delegation of Seibtla, near Mount Samama, before trading fire with the terrorist group, the ministry said on Saturday.

“A dangerous terrorist was shot dead and several others wounded,” it indicated. “According to initial reports, the wanted terrorist shot dead is of Algerian nationality. He had joined terrorist groups in 1993.”

The terrorist, who had close ties with the leader of al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM), was on a mission to reconstitute the terrorist brigade Okba Ibn Nafaa, many of whose leaders have been heavily hit by strikes of National Guard units.

The Interior Ministry also said the terrorist “is a contact link between AQIM, the Al Qaeda organisation in Libya and the Okba Ibn Nafaa Brigade and has been visiting terrorist groups positioned in the Kasserine Mountains since 2014.”
