Tunisia anti-terror operation leads to death of 2 militants

Two militants were killed Tuesday night in an operation led by special units of the Tunisian National Guard in the central-western province of Kasserine, local media reported.

The official confirmation, however, is still not available.

According to local media, Abu Awf Al-Moujahad, the brother of former Algerian jihadist leader Lokmane Abou Sakhr who was killed in 2015 in the southwest of Tunisia, is among the killed.

Al-Moujahad was involved in a series of attacks in Tunisia, including an attempt to assault the home of former Interior Minister Lotfi Ben Jedou.
