Two Suspected Jihadis Killed, 16 Arrested Near Tunis

The Times of Israel reports: Two suspected jihadists were killed on Wednesday during a security operation near the Tunisian capital, the country’s Interior Ministry said.

Sixteen others, some of them armed, were arrested during the operation in Ariana province just outside Tunis, it said in a statement.

A resident of the Sanhaji district told AFP that a two-hour gun battle erupted with the suspects after the national guard launched the raid at around 8 a.m. (0700 GMT).

“They were not from the neighborhood. We didn’t know them. They rented the house recently,” she said.
