TUNIS: A landmine killed four Tunisian soldiers on Wednesday during an counter-terrorism operation in mountainous central Tunisia, the defence ministry said.
“Four soldiers who were part of a military unit tasked with carrying out a combing operation of Mount Mghila looking for terrorist elements were killed by a mine,” ministry spokesman Mohamed Zekri told AFP.
The sweep was “part of the regular anti-terrorist operations carried out by military forces in the region,” Zekri added.
