In a statement, the ministry said that security forces had tracked down two terrorist suspects in the southeastern city of Ben Gardane.
After one of them blew himself up, security forces exchanged fire with the second suspect, the ministry said without providing any death or injury tolls.
In March of 2016, Ben Gardane was the scene of fierce confrontations between Tunisian security forces and the ISIL terrorist group, which ended in a crushing defeat for the latter.
ISIL's 2016 assault on Ben Gardane resulted in the death of 21 people -- including security personnel -- and 57 terrorists.
