Tunis—A Tunisian soldier has been killed in his home near central Mount Mghilla, an area where jihadist fighters operate, public television reported late Saturday.
Citing defence ministry spokesman Belhassen Oueslati, the television channel said that army and national guard units had launched a search for the unknown attackers.
Tunisian authorities gave no comment when asked for further details by AFP.
Tunisian forces have, since 2012, been trying to flush out groups of extremists holed up in the country’s mountainous regions, notably Mghilla and Chaambi, in the central Kasserine region.—APP
