Tunisia - Rear Base for Mali's Jihadists

For jihadists in northern Mali, Tunisia is of strategic importance. For months, the country of the revolution turned into a base for recruitment and deployment of new fighters. Young people often attracted by a form of pure Sharia, but also by the prospect of a jihad against those they call "French crusaders."

According to,sources,there are nearly 300 Tunisian jihadists in northern Mali. Tunisian authorities, in contrast, reports that there are only fifty men. Most arrived well before the French strikes, but they stimulate jihad now dreams of many candidates motivated by calls for holy war launched in several major mosques in Tunisia and on the internet, where French interests are routinely designated as a target.

But if Tunisia is also strategic for the jihadists in Mali, it is because it serves as a corridor, in the words of President Moncef Marzouki. A corridor for transporting arms coming from Libya via Algeria. These weapons first passed through the northern mountains - where two cells of thirty men belonging to AQIM were dismantled in December - but also the southernmost desert, near the Sahara.
