Tunisia says foiled several Daesh attacks
Tunisian security forces have thwarted several attacks by the Daesh terrorist group, Interior Minister Hisham al-Furati said on Monday.  

“Plots by Daesh-linked groups to carry out suicide attacks against security and military forces were foiled this month,” al-Furati told parliament.  

The minister said terrorist threats have been on the rise in Tunisia.  

He cited the arrest of a Daesh militant “who has turned his house into a place to manufacture explosives and poisonous gases”.  

“This man was planning a series of terrorist attacks in the capital this month against security and military targets,” the minister said.  

He also cited the arrest of another Daesh militant, who was planning a vehicular attack against security and military personnel.  

Last month, a woman blew herself up in the capital Tunis, killing herself and injuring dozens.
