Is ISIS now taking over Tatooine?

The town of Tataouine, Tunisia, which was once the set of the “Star Wars” films, has now apparentlyy become a waystation for jihadists.

Fans of the movie franchise are now being warned to stay away from the region’s tourist attractions, because of the presence of militants crossing the border into Libya to join the Islamic State.

Prior to the attack on the Bardo Museum in Tunis on March 18, three men were arrested in Tataouine for allegedly making plans to cross into Libya to join a terrorist network. Additionally, two armed caches containing rocket-propelled grenade launchers and more than 20,000 rounds of ammunition have been found in the region in the past month, according to CNN. READ MORE.
