Template:Infobox military conflict The Tunisian-Sicilian War occurred between June 1801 and April 1804, when Tunisian pirates with Tunisian and Algerian military support attacked and captured several Sicilian ships.[1] The main purpose of their attacks was to capture Christian-European slaves for the Muslim-Arab slave market in North Africa.[2] The Sicilians with their Sardinian and British allies defeated the forces of the Tunisian-allied coalition and then occupied Aryanah and La Goulette until 1808.[3]
