The Tunisian government announced on Sunday that “foreigners” were behind the murder of a local engineer who is affiliated with the Hamas terrorist group.
"The investigations concerning the assassination of Tunisian citizen Mohamed Zaouari and the latest findings have proven that foreign elements were involved," the government said on its Facebook page, according to AFP.
It did not give further details, but said it was "determined to protect all Tunisian citizens and to pursue those guilty of carrying out assassination inside and outside" the country.
Zaouari, a 49-year-old engineer, was murdered at the wheel of his car outside his house in Tunisia's second city, Sfax, on Thursday.
A spokesman for Hamas’s Al-Qassam Martyrs Brigade, on Saturday blamed Israel for Zaouari’s death, telling AFP he was a drone expert and was killed by "Zionist treachery".
