The Tunisian security forces arrested a terrorist on Sunday and said he was "very dangerous."

They also arrested three of his aides, who had protected him during his hiding in Mount Goubellat, northwestern Tunisia.

"This is a great achievement on the media and execution level,” the sources said.

Sufian al-Sulaiti, a spokesman for Tunisia's counter-terrorism apparatus, revealed a number of data on the operation.

He said that the Tunisian terrorist called Ibrahim al-Riyahi, 31, was involved in various dangerous terrorist acts, adding that several arrest warrants were issued against him.

With regard to the details of this successful security operation, Sulaiti said that it was "the outcome of a pre-emptive operation" that was successfully planned.

The terrorist was ambushed with the help of intelligence information.

He stressed that all stages of this process have been conducted under the supervision of the Public Prosecution in the judicial counter-terrorism apparatus.

In order to confirm the importance of the achievement of the counter-terrorism team and the information it will provide them on a number of previous terrorist operations, Sulaiti pointed out that they have launched security investigations few hours after the arrest of the terrorist, who has been involved in terrorist crimes since 2013, along with his three assistants
