TIMEFRAME expected from 11/29/2018, 12:00 AM until 11/30/2018, 11:59 PM (Africa/Tunis). COUNTRY/REGION Kasserine

Event

Unidentified gunmen opened fire on a police patrol in Kasserine (Kasserine province) during the evening hours (local time) on Thursday, November 29, wounding at least one civilian bystander. The Ministry of the Interior subsequently deployed additional security forces to the area. Officials are unclear if the incident is terror-related. A heightened security presence is anticipated in the area in the coming days. Further such attacks are possible in the near-term.

Advice

Due to the terrorist threat, individuals across Tunisia are advised to remain vigilant and to report any suspicious objects or behavior to the authorities, particularly when visiting sites deemed especially likely to be targeted in an attack (e.g. public transportation, train stations, ports, airports, public or government buildings, embassies or consulates, international organizations, schools and universities, religious sites, markets, hotels and restaurants frequented by foreigners/Westerners, festivals, etc.). Certain Western governments advise against travel to the south of the country (i.e. regions on the borders with Algeria and Libya) due to the presence of armed groups.
