Tunisians rally in support of Palestinians


Tunisians have taken to the streets across the North African country in solidarity with Palestinians and their resistance against Israel, Press TV reports.

During demonstrations on Friday, protesters denounced Israel’s crimes against Palestinians and the silence of some Arab states on Tel Aviv’s aggression.

The protesters say resistance is the only way that can help bring an end to Israel’s occupation of Palestinian land.

“There is no way but resistance to end the Israeli occupation. The Palestinian people have to unite against the racist and criminal Zionist gang,” Bechir Khediri, from Supporters of Palestine Association, told Press TV.

The demonstrators voiced support for Palestinian civilians who are subject to daily aggression by Israeli forces, while Tel Aviv is going ahead with efforts to Judaize al-Quds (Jerusalem).

Palestinian journalist Youssef Handan said, “All Muslims must unite to stop the Judaization of al-Quds and the destruction of al-Aqsa Mosque.”

The protesters also held some Arab states responsible for the numerous tragedies the Palestinians are facing.

“Some Arab countries are defending and financing Israel. They are responsible for the Israeli massacres against Palestinians,” a demonstrator said.

Despite the political transition and serious challenges in Tunisia, people assert that the Palestinian cause must remain a priority for any politician or civilian in the North African state.

Activists have slammed what they describe as the complicity of allies of Tel Aviv in the crimes committed against Palestinians. Tunisians have called for the criminalization of any ties with Israel.
