Tunisian Army

Post by Mootaz21 »

Hello this my first Topic and i will discuss ( with u ) About my country Army
so God help me
The Land Army is the largest service branch within the Tunisian Armed Forces and has a dominant presence in the current General Staff. It is estimated to number around 66,000 strong.

The modern army was created in the 1830s, and during the twentieth century has fought one battle against France (Bizerte crisis and we call it Bizerte liberation war in 1961 ) .
The army is currently engaged in a war against a terrorist group called Okba ibn Nafaâ Brigade ( belong to al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb ) in Chaambi Campaign
and this pictures from it
