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. The main purpose of their attacks was to capture Christian-European slaves for the Muslim-Arab slave market in North Africa. 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.
