Adel Tayari – TDO -The British government warned Wednesday (March 22nd, 2017) of a "serious terrorist threat targeting aircraft in Tunisia," noting that it decided to take strict and additional security on direct flights from Tunisia to the United Kingdom.
The British government, in a statement on its official website, called on its citizens to coordinate with the security authorities and officials for more information on flights to Tunisia, pointing out that this warning does not come to prevent its citizens from traveling, but to call for caution.
Britain has announced a ban on carrying electronic devices on board aircraft from six countries, including Tunisia. It is worth mentioning that a British official commented on the news"there are no great dangers in Tunisia, unlike other regions" and "we have programs of work with Tunisia and the neighboring countries.
It should be noted that Great Britain maintains its warning to its citizens against travels in Tunisia despite attempts to lift its warning which has caused enormous losses to the tourism sector in Tunisia.
