For one month in particular, Axis forces in Sfax were the target of Allied bombing activity, from December 12, 1942, until early January 1943. These summaries come from military reports of the time:
Dec. 12 XII Bomber Command B-17s attack the port facilities at Sfax for the first time
And this terse summary of Allied bombing activity:
14 During the morning, nine 15th Light Bombardment Squadron A-20s, escorted by eight 14th Fighter Group P-38s and twelve 33d Fighter Group P-40s, attack the Sfax railroad station. During the afternoon, nine 15th Light Bombardment Squadron A-20s, escorted by P-38s, attack the same target.
15 The Ninth Air Force's campaign against the Tunisian ports opened most auspiciously on 15 December when nine B-24D's of the 376th Group obliterated the roundhouse at Sfax. The B-24s obliterate a locomotive repair shop.
19 XII Air Force A-20s, escorted by 33rd Fighter Group P-40s, attack the marshalling yards at Sfax
21 at Sfax and Gabes and on the 22nd at Bizerte, Sousse, and Sfax, 10/10 cloud prevented an attack.
26 XII Bomber Command B-17s attack shipping and port facilities at Sfax. German Air Force fighters and heavy flak down two B-17s and two P-38s, but a flight of four P-38 pilots from the 1st Fighter Group's 94th Fighter Squadron down three of the GAF fighters. XII Bomber Command B-17s, escorted by P-40s, claim three Axis ships damaged while mounting a second attack against shipping and port facilities at Sfax. While conducting reconnaissance patrols, XII Fighter Command P-38s strafe three locomotives and a number of motor vehicles.
28 Sfax sustained three attacks, being visited by a total of 64 B-17's, i8 B-25's, and 15 B-26's, all escorted, several of the B-26's coming down for strafing runs.
30/31 Sfax absorbed further punishment: the 97th started fires in the marshalling yards and on the west end of its north quay on the 30th, and next day the 301st claimed hits on two medium-sized ships in the harbor.
Jan. 5 Eleven B-17's of the 97th Group bombed and completely destroyed the Sfax power station, hit at least one vessel in the harbor, and left the entire dock area smoking.

Bomb damage assessment, both by photographic interpretation and by visual inspection on the ground after the campaign, showed extremely gratifying results. The port areas of Sousse, Sfax, La Goulette, and Bizerte were all but completely devastated. Marshalling yards were cratered and rolling stock strewn about in hopeless ruin. Airdromes were abandoned or the landing areas limited, while hangars were blasted and fire-twisted, with irreplaceable Axis aircraft heaped in airplane graveyards.
