A unit of the Tunisian army recently got involved in a fierce clash with an armed gang in the town of Gbelli — located in southern Tunisia — according to a military spokesperson.

Lieutenant Mokhtar ben Nasr confirmed that the fight has not dissolved, yet he refused to add more details about the identity and origins of the aggressors.

According to TAP, the situation is thus far under control, and the Tunisian Army is currently winning the battle, although the armed group has refused to abide by the Army ‘s orders.

A related confrontation between the Tunisian Army and a ‘terrorist group’ occurred just last month, and rumors circulate on Facebook and Twitter that the group crossed the Algerian-Tunisian borders into Tunisian territory with malicious motives.

The Tunisian Army augmented its presence along the borders of Tunisia following the uprising in Libya to prevent Gadhafi loyalists from sneaking into the country.
