TUNIS: Two Tunisian soldiers were killed and four wounded in a clash with jihadists in a western region near the Algerian border on Monday, the defense ministry said. Tunisia has faced an upsurge in jihadist violence since its 2011 revolution that has cost the lives of several dozen soldiers and police, with most attacks claimed by Al-Qaeda’s North African branch. The Tunisian branch of Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb, the terror network’s North African arm, claimed the clash, according to the SITE Intelligence Group, which monitors jihadist Internet sites.
