Despite these efforts, sporadic French opposition delayed planned Allied attacks on Casablanca and Mehdia, and two destroyers were lost off Algiers. However, the weakest point of the Allied plan was its failure to occupy Tunisia in the first landings. German troops began to arrive there on 9 November to cover Rommel's retreat and formed a defensive perimeter.

Italian troops were now coming up to replace the German units making ready to cross the Egyptian frontier.

Axis troops pushed a salient into the western sector, but it was contained after four days of fighting.
