The Tunisian National Guard Special Unit (USGN) is one of the top special forces units in North Africa as well as the Middle-East.
Theres a reason you don’t see NATO troops in open combat and dropping bombs on Tunisian streets to kill terrorists. These guys clean their own house. They’re competent and well trained.
The USGN specializes in counter-terrorism, hostage rescue, reconnaissance and raw combat. These dudes regularly conduct interoperability training with Western special forces units, making them high speed and low drag.
In January 2018, the USGN killed a senior al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) leader who was wanted internationally since 1993.
