First, I would like to thank everyone for all the feedback (positive & negative)…it’s all good.
For those who are new to the site please note that the purpose of this blog is to provide the expatriate community in Tunisia with practical & relevant security updates.
The objective is to empower expats with information so that they are not simply reacting to the latest news. In addition to this blog I also manage a facebook page, twitter, and conduct periodic security awareness workshops.
Lastly, I would like to make it absolutely clear that this blog is strictly independent and does not represent the views of any formal organization, embassy, etc.
And now back to our Security Updates…
Tunisia security forces are taking proactive measures in and around Tunis. Additional road check points and military presence have increased throughout the country.
For those traveling within Tunisia, please take note of the following military operations areas:
Bir Al Hfay, Sidi Ali ben oun, Sidi Aich, Mont Twal, Mont Oudada, Mont Saloum, Mont algaradka, Mont Kmayem, Mont Rkamet and surrounding areas from 25 October 2013 until the end of operations.
Additional areas include:
Jebel Ouergha: between Le Kef and the Algerian border
Rural Kasserine (delimited in blue in the map below) and especially Jebel Châambi
Rural governorate of Sidi Bouzid adjoining that of Kasserine (outlined in red)

Hoping for the best
Once again I appreciate all the feedback, but please remember that I am just an average expat living in Tunis hoping that things go well.
As always I welcome the opportunity to collaborate with anyone that is interested in sharing practical & relevant security information in a transparent manner.
Lastly, feel free to contact me…if you have a question don’t speculate…simply ask and I will answer.
