General Info: Minisheet from Tunisia

A few days ago, La Poste Tunisienne surprised us with this minisheet.  5 stamps with designs of the 2013 and 2014 lighthouses issues, but with new face value.  Also outside of the regular program of issues.   I publish this ítem here under the General Info label until I get more info.
Thanks Jaap for the alert.
