    Tunisian T-M70

    https://www.nature.com/articles/s415...-95144-x#Sec17

    Insights into the Middle Eastern paternal genetic pool in Tunisia: high prevalence of T-M70 haplogroup in an Arab population.
    Sarra Elkamel, Sofia L. Marques, Luis Alvarez, Veronica Gomes, Sami Boussetta, Soufia Mourali-Chebil, Houssein Khodjet-El-Khil, Lotfi Cherni, Amel Benammar-Elgaaied & Maria J. Prata.

    Abstract:
    To obtain refreshed insights into the paternal lineages of Tunisian populations, Y-chromosome diversity was assessed in two populations belonging to an Arab genealogical lineage, Kairouan and Wesletia, as well as in four Tunisian Andalusian populations, Testour, Slouguia, Qalaat-El-Andalous and El Alia. The Arabs from Kairouan revealed 73.47% of E-M81 and close affinities with Berber groups, indicating they are likely arabized Berbers, clearly differentiated from the Arabs from Wesletia, who harbored the highest frequency (71.8%) of the Middle Eastern component ever observed in North Africa. In the Tunisian Andalusians, the North African component largely prevailed, followed by the Middle Eastern contribution. Global comparative analysis highlighted the heterogeneity of Tunisian populations, among which, as a whole, dominated a set of lineages (Y-DNA) ascribed to be of autochthonous Berber origin (71.67%), beside a component of essentially Middle Eastern extraction (18.35%), and signatures of Sub-Saharan (5.2%), European (3.45%) and Asiatic (1.33%) contributions. The remarkable frequency of T-M70 in Wesletia (17.4%) prompted to refine its phylogeographic analysis, allowing to confirm its Middle Eastern origin, though signs of local evolution in Northern Africa were also detected. Evidence was clear on the ancient introduction of T lineages into the region, probably since Neolithic times associated to spread of agriculture.

    chit-chat around the net seem to imply https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iberomaurusian origin

    but Yfull has also later german dna mixed in .....................the Vandals

    current yfull has 1 tunisia and 1 german in the group

    Interesting paper thanks for sharing
    The high T-m70 in arab tunisian population wesleita
    is fasicnating
    Maybe some branches of t-m70 spread with arabs movements in 700 Ad
    And some branches are older ,( the late neolithic ancient dude from morocco)
    ancestery :
    mostly western jewish here is the overlapp with south europe
