Bilal Mosque'. Initial reports from ShemsFm cited an eyewitness report claiming that an individual on a motorcycle had been seen dropping off the plastic bag. ShemsFm added that military units who were already in the area conducting search operations after reports of suspicious movements from Jebel (Mount) Lihirech, approximately 5km from the the scene discovered the explosive device. TAP's report on today's incident adds 'Terrorists were holed up in this neighbourhood which hosts Bilal Mosque. Some of them were eliminated in previous operations in Kef and Kasserine.' The Bilal Mosque was the scene of a standoff between Salafist extremists and Tunisian security forces in 2012 when approximately 150 people filled the mosque to prevent security forces from apprehending several wanted suspects who had taken refuge in the mosque to avoid a security patrol.
