In Ariana, following the assault of a woman with a knife by an individual on the night of May 7, in Borj Louzir causing her a serious injury while threatening her son by the same weapon the local security centre on Thursday managed to arrest the attacker. Aged 29, he turned out to be a takfiirste member, says one source.

In Monastir, the National Guard’s research unit, arrested another 25-year-old takfirist living in Menzel Nour on Wednesday for establishing links with terrorist leaders active in the ranks of Daesh in Syria via the social network Facebook and the Messenger application.
