protest to protect Palestine and Palestinian

RNA - Citizens from all the governorates in Tunisia have taken part in the march. They raised Palestinian and Tunisian flags and chanted that Jerusalem is the eternal capital of Palestine. They also called for the criminalization of normalization with the occupation, Middle East Monitor reported.

 

The National Coordination Committee for the Criminalization of Normalization with the Israeli Occupation held its first meeting earlier this month, in the presence of representatives of Tunisian parties and NGOs in order to further establish the reality of belonging to Tunisia, Palestine, and Jerusalem.

 

According to Fars News Agancy, they also called for the criminalization of normalization through a law which is expected to be voted on in the Tunisian People’s Assembly on the 20th of this month.

 

A statement issued by the meeting stressed that “Zionism represents a threat to Tunisia, and that the Zionist movement is aimed at controlling all the Arab countries within the new Middle East regime.”

 

The statement added that the enactment of the law which criminalizes normalization will strongly support Palestine, its people, and its cause; the Palestinian people who sacrificed with thousands of martyrs and thousands of wounded and detainees.

 

The statement also reminded of the Palestinian people’s sacrifices in order to defend them.
