The Ministry of the Interior in the Salvation Government handed over on Saturday eight Tunisian extremists to the Tunisian authorities in Ras Ajdir border.

A security source told Press Solidarity that those eight extremists are fugitive from the Tunisian judiciary because they are convicted of joining a terrorist organization, pointing out that their extradition to Tunisia came as a result of a coordination between the SG authorities and the Tunisian ones.   

Official sources have recently unveiled reports that say almost five thousand Tunisian fighters are now part of terrorist organizations in Syria, Iraq, and Libya, indicating that around a thousand others have joined the so-called IS in Libya.
