Tunisia: Ambassadorial Staff in Syria Returning to Nation February 10th.

The Tunisian ambassador to Syria, Mohamed Lawiti, as well as the rest of the ambassadorial staff in Syria, will return to Tunisia on Friday morning, February 10th.

The return follows the expulsion of the Syrian ambassador from Tunisia on Saturday. This action was taken as a response to the escalating crisis caused by the Syrian regime's violent crackdown.

The press attache of the Tunisian embassy in Damascus confirmed to Tunisia Live that approximately two thousand Tunisian nationals fled the country since the uprisings began, and that less than one thousand Tunisians remain.

The press attache, who wished to remain anonymous, also stated that the Tunisian embassies of both Jordan and Lebanon will be providing all necessary services needed to the remaining Tunisian community in Syria. This decision was made following agreements and accords reached between the Tunisian embassy in Syria with each respective embassy.
