Hassen Ibn Nooman was repelled by the Kahina who ruled over Ifriqiya for five years. It was after the reoccupation of Carthage by the Byzantines that the Caliph Abd Al-Malik provided him with supporting forces that allowed him to reconquer Ifriqiya in 698 AD and establish a naval base between Tunis and Radès. The Zenata cavalry of the Kahina joined the Arabs after the defeat of their queen. Around 705 AD, Hassen was replaced by Musa Ibn Nusayr. No longer dependent on Egypt, this governor extended Umayyad power over the Maghreb and then into Andalusia, thanks to the Berber contingents led by his lieutenant Tarik Ibn Ziad in 711 AD. After the downfall of the Nusayrid clan, the new governors sent by Damascus had antagonistic policies towards the Berbers.
We are pleased to have as our guests, Mr. Fathi Bahri, historian and archaeologist specializing in the Middle Ages, former director general of the INP, Mr. Mohamed Ben Abbes, historian specializing in Late Antiquity and Early Middle Ages, Mr. Mohamed Hasan, historian specializing in the Middle Ages, and Mr. Faouzi Mahfoudh, archaeologist and historian specializing in Islamic art and architecture and former General Director of the INP (National Heritage Institute).

Inkyfada Podcast is the first platform entirely dedicated to original Tunisian podcasts, and was conceived by Inkyfada media in collaboration with the in-house research and development laboratory, InkyLab. Inkyfada joined the global podcast boom in 2017, when the team produced the first Tunisian audio documentary, diving deep into the belly of the El Kamour struggle taking place in the desert. Since then, Inkyfada Podcast has produced a wide variety of documentaries, investigations, and podcast series, as well as articles accompanied by music; covering a multitude of contemporary issues in order to offer an immersive and alternative podcast experience. Whilst exclusively offering audio content, the Inkyfada Podcast team upholds the same core values and principles of inkyfada.com, and is committed to producing high quality content though a dynamic and meticulous production process. In addition to the permanent team, Inkyfada podcast works closely with various journalists, artists, illustrators, musicians and other content creators in order to diversify the platform and support artistic creativity. These podcasts differ from traditional radiophonic content in that the applied production and editing process is more akin to cinematographic techniques, in addition to being web-based, downloadable and accessible on demand. Additionally, Inkyfada Podcast uniquely offers subtitles in French, Arabic and English for all audio content, the majority of which is recorded in Tunisian or in the preferred language of the speaker in question.
