De lʼÉocène au Quaternaire inférieur, trois phases tectoniques compressives sont reconnues en Tunisie nord-orientale : la première, contemporaine de lʼÉocène supérieur, est caractérisée par une direction de raccourcissement NW-SE à nord-sud, induisant la genèse des plis NE-SW et le jeu des failles est-ouest à N120 et NE-SW selon une composante inverse. La deuxième phase, exprimée au cours du Miocène supérieur, est caractérisée par une contrainte  , orientée N120 à N140. Elle a induit le rejeu des failles est-ouest à N120 selon une composante normale, et la formation de plis NE-SW. La troisième phase, datée du Plio-Quaternaire inférieur, dont la direction de la contrainte   est NW-SE à nord-sud, est responsable de lʼactivation des failles est-ouest à N120, en décrochement dextre inverse, et des failles NE-SW à composante inverse, et de la genèse des plis NE-SW.

During Eocene to Early Quaternary period, three compressive tectonic phases are recognized in Northeast Tunisia: a NW-SE to north-south phase during the Late Eocene, a N120-to-N140 phase in the Late Miocene, and a NW-SE to north-south phase in the Plio-Early Quaternary. The first Eocene phase has built NE-SW folds and remobilised east-west-to-N120 and NE-SW faults with a reverse component. The second Miocene phase is characterized by east-west-to-N120 faults with a normal component and NE-SW folds. The third phase occurred during the Plio-Early Quaternary has edified NE-SW folds associated with east-west-to-N120 dextral reverse strike-slip faults and NE-SW faults with a reverse component.
