Tunisian security forces killed a senior leader of the Islamic State militant group (ISIS) on Sunday. They believed he was plotting attacks on the country during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.
Axar.az reports citing Newsweek.
The Interior Ministry announced his death Monday, describing him as “dangerous,” but did not identify the leader. Sofiene Sliti, a spokesperson for the Justice Ministry, told Tunisia’s Shems FM radio the leader was a Tunisian national named Houssem Tlithi, AFP news agency reports.
The country’s National Guard killed him Sunday night, wounding another jihadi and seizing materials for a suicide bomb and an assault rifle that the Interior Ministry said he was planning to use in “terrorist” assaults in the next four weeks.
