The Criminal Chamber of the Tunis Court of First Instance sentenced a person accused of terrorist activities to 13 years in prison.

The department announced the charges, including “planning to carry out a suicide attack with an explosive belt in one of the Tunisian tourist cities in 2022.”

A spokesman for Tunisian courts and a spokesman for the General Directorate of the National Guard said that a number of suspects belonging to “takfiris” and groups involved in smuggling people, drugs and goods of unknown origin have been arrested.

Some of them were among those who had security or judicial checks issued some time ago on charges of “belonging to a terrorist organization” or to networks of militants (takfiris).

The arrests in Tunisia included groups of smuggling suspects in several governorates whose security forces seized dozens of boats and engines used by members of irregular migrant smuggling networks between the coasts of Tunisia, Libya, and southern Europe.
