For his part, the Libyan interior minister stressed his country’s determination to overcome all difficulties to continue the passage of travelers between the two countries through this crossing.

On March 19, 2024, the Libyan Interior Ministry announced the closure of the Ras Jedir border crossing with Tunisia after an attack by a “criminal group.”

Ras Jedir is located about 600 kilometers southeast of the Tunisian capital Tunis. It is considered one of the most important border crossing points between the two countries.
