insult

Here is my best explanation:

'offend' is the definition.
(insulting is a kind of offending)

'leadership primarily in volatile tunis' is the wordplay.
'primarily' says to take the initial letters.
'in' is an insertion indicator.
'volatile' is an anagram indicator.
The first letter of 'leadership' is 'l'.
'tunis' anagrammed gives 'insut'.
'l' placed into 'insut' is 'INSULT'.
