Aside from the foreigners that were arrested in the past couple of days in Tunisia by the Tunisian army from Sweden and Germany who turned to be tourist hunters,there are very alarming rumors online that there are currently foreign mercenaries responsible for the unrests and also the murders that took place in the past weeks.
I heard that the snipers that used to kill the protesters in Tunisian towns in the past couple of weeks are not from Tunisia but rather Serbian mercenaries brought by Ben Ali.
Yesterday I read that former members of South Lebanon army entered the country as mercenaries , may be there is something of mix here because Israel is claiming that it has managed to return all the Israeli tourists in the country in some adventure as usual so may be they used these mercenaries to protect their tourists.
There is no smoke without fire and the Ben Ali’s regime will not go without a fight. Already till yesterday there had been clashes between the Tunisian army and the remains of the Ben Ali’s presidential guard.
Back to the Swedish tourists ,this video filmed earlier this week in Tunis shows their arrest and also beating, there was a shooting near their convoy and they were arrested on suspicion , they were beaten as you can see it as Tunisians thought they were snipers.
They raised many question marks as riffles were found with them , these were hunting riffles and their tourists were on a hunting trip !! Of course I was quite surprised that there is a hunting activity in Tunisia but after doing a little search online , I found out that there is an active legal hunting tourism in Tunisia.
I know Sweden is so angry that its citizens were beaten like that but it should not forget that for two weeks Ben Ali’s snipers killed so many innocent Tunisians throughout the country. Yes I feel sorry for those hunters but again but they should have stayed in their hotel or contacted their embassy before going to the airport!!
