Patrols of the Tunisian National Guard blocked an attempt to leave the country irregularly from the coast of Jebeniana, in the governorate of Sfax, arresting 19 people from sub-Saharan African states, as well as three traffickers of Tunisian migrants. This was reported by the spokesman of the National Guard, Houssem Eddine Jebabli, on his Facebook page, stating that the agents also seized a number of boats that were being exploited for irregular departures. The new data from the Viminale seen by "Agenzia Nova" show a setback in the arrivals of migrants in Italy from Tunisia by sea: for three weeks, in fact, the pace of arrivals has drastically reduced, perhaps due to the bad weather and the three cyclones that they hit the central Mediterranean. From the beginning of the year until May 19, Tunisia remains "fixed" at 25.134 migrants landed on Italian coasts, "only" 751 more people than on May 2 and about 44 landed per day in the last three weeks, an increase of over +652 per cent compared to the 3.342 arrivals in the same period last year, but a decidedly lower figure compared to the 200 landed per day up to May 32.101nd. However, we are still well over half of the total 2022 landings from the Tunisian route for the whole of XNUMX.
