A group of Tunisian girls traveled to Syria to participate in “sexual jihad” there have returned to Tunisia pregnant, Tunisian Interior Minister Lotfi Bin Jeddo reportedly said on Thursday.

The women “are (sexually) swapped between 20, 30, and 100 rebels and they come back bearing the fruit of sexual contacts in the name of sexual jihad and we are silent doing nothing and standing idle,” Arab news network Al Arabiya reported the minister as saying during an address to the National Constituent Assembly.



Former Mufti of Tunisia Sheikh Othman Battikh reportedly said in April that 13 Tunisian girls were "fooled" into traveling to Syria to offer sexual intercourse to rebel fighters, in order to create an army strong enough to overthrow the regime of President Bashar Assad.

The mufti, who Al Alrabiya says was dismissed from his post shortly after making these alleged statements, described the so-called “sexual Jihad” as a type of “prostitution.”


“For Jihad in Syria, they are now pushing girls to go there. 13 young girls have been sent for sexual jihad. What is this? This is called prostitution. It is moral educational corruption,” the mufti was quoted as saying.

In August, general director of public security service in Tunisia Mostafa Bin Omar said that a “sexual jihad cell” had been discovered and dispersed in an area west of the country known for its concentration of al-Qaida fighters.

Bin Omar told Al Arabiya that al-Qaeda affiliate Ansar Shariah was offering minor girls with their faces covered as sexual offerings for jihadist fighters.
