The ministry ensured that military patrols are deployed along the Tunisian borders with the neighboring Libya, "ready to shoot any suspicious body that infiltrates Tunisian airspace."

Tunisian media had earlier quoted Tunisian political activist Mostafa Abdel Kabir as saying that foreign drones were flying over southeastern Tunisia, "and they seemed to belong to one of the parties in the Libyan conflict."
