Manama: Bahrain yesterday denounced the terrorist attack on a patrol of the National Guard in Jendouba, Tunisia, which resulted in the death of six security officers.

The Foreign Ministry affirmed Bahrain’s support to measures taken by Tunisia to combat terrorism and protect its security and stability.

Tunisian Interior Ministry spokesman General Sufyan Al Zaq said the blast was a “terrorist attack” and that assailants had “opened fire on security forces” after the mine exploded.

No group has claimed the attack, which took place in a mountainous border area where the Al Qaeda-linked Okba Ibn Nafaa Battalion and the Tunisian branch of the Islamic State group, Jund Al Khilafa (Soldiers of the Caliphate), are active.
