Police reportedly fired tear gas to disperse protesters in Jelma (Sidi Bouzid province) on Monday, December 2. Clashes erupted in Jelma for a third consecutive day amid protests against poverty and a lack of job opportunities. Demonstrations began on Saturday, November 30, one day after a local laborer set himself on fire in response to poor living conditions. No casualties were immediately reported as a result of Monday's unrest. 

Additional demonstrations are to be expected in Jelma over the coming days. A heightened security presence and associated disruptions to transportation and business are likely around large protests. Clashes between protesters and security forces cannot be ruled out. 


Individuals in Jelma are advised to monitor developments, avoid all protests and demonstrations as a precaution, and anticipate a heightened security presence and localized disruptions to business and transportation around protest sites.
