(TAP) – “We will soon avenge our martyrs, we will not rest till the elimination of all terrorists,” Prime Minister Youssef Chahed said at the end of a security meeting held Monday at the Kasbah Palace.

“The terrorists seek to undermine the economic gains, women’s rights and freedoms,” he added.

This meeting was held early Monday as part of monitoring the ongoing operations to find terrorists holed up in border mountainous areas following a terrorist attack on members of the National Guard that left 6 killed and 3 injured.

“The war against terrorism in a long-term fight, we had won important fights but isolated and desperate terrorist groups had committed today this heinous act and we will not rest till their full elimination,” he said.

Chahed paid a tribute to the memory of the martyrs that had sacrificed themselves for Tunisia, affirming that the state and the government are determined to avenge Tunisia’s heroes.

“I want to reassure the Tunisians that the security situation is under control and that Tunisia will emerge victorious from this war against terrorism thanks to the readiness of its security forces and the unity of the Tunisian people,” he concluded
