Tunis was to be defended by the newly arrive Italian Superga Division. Motorized patrols were used by the Italians to keep track of Allied forces and to apply pressure when an opportunity presented itself. One such patrol approached Bedja on 21 November with the intention of probing Allied strength in the area. The soldiers of Suprga headed straight for a collision with the men of the Free French 15th Senegalese Infantry Regiment, assigned to defend the pass. The Senegalese 2nd Battalion had been reinforced with 25mm and 47mm anti-tank guns.
