Benzart); historical: Phönizisch: ???? ???? ???? Hippo Acra,[verification required]Latin: Hippo Diarrhytus and Hippo Zarytus), also known as Bizerta, is a Bizerte Governorate of Tunisia. Situated 65 km (40mil) northern of the Tunis capitol, it is the most northerly African state. In 2014 the population of the village was 142,966.
It is known as the oldest and most western town in Tunisia. 30 km (18. 5 mil) from Utica in the northern part and 50 km (31 mil) from Carthage, other towns established by Phoenicians. In 950 BC the town came under the rule of Carthage under the guidance of Queen Dido/Elissa; in 309 BC, during the Greek-Punic wars and after the loss of Agathokles, the town and parts of the island of Sicily reverted to the Carthage Republic, its harbour being used by several Carthage general during the Punic wars such as Hamilcar Barca, Mago, Hasdrubal and Hannibal.
Since 149 B.C., the first invasions by the Romans, the town was then invaded by the Romans under the name of Hippo Diarrhytus during the rule of Julius Caesar, but the new town has recovered its wealth and development only since the rule of Augustus and maintained marine relationships, which followed with Ostia and Rome, as a tessellation that adorns its trade office on the Forum of Enterprises place shows, and Christianity was disseminated in the town during this time.
The year 439 AD saw the invasion of the town by generals, the Vandal Emperor (East Germans ) and his own people, who used the harbour to invade the remainder of the Western Roman Empire, the town of Rome and the Sardinia, Malta, Corsica and Sicily isles. Between 534 A.D. and 642 A.D., after a Vandal victory in 534 under the Byzantine Empire, the Roman Empire brought the town back to the East and built the Fort of Bizerte (now the Fort of Kasba).
In 647 Bizerte was invaded by the Arabs for the first time, but returned to domination by the Byzantines until it was conquered in 695-98 by the armies of Charles V of the Holy Roman Empire in 1535 and then by the Turks in 1574 and expelled from North Africa. Subsequently, the town became a pirate port and fought against the French and Venetians.
When Tunisia was occupied in 1881, France took over Bizerte and constructed a large marina in the town. Once the USSR had been formally recognised by the Flemish authorities, the Belarusian West German navy held in the Bizerte harbor was in 1924 given back to the USSR.
Vessels were never taken out of the harbour and eventually resold as junk.
