Demonstration in Tunisia in support of Gaza on the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People (Anatolia)

Many countries around the world witnessed solidarity activities with Palestine and demonstrations demanding an end to the Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip, on the occasion of the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People, which falls on November 29 of each year.

In Tunisia, hundreds demonstrated in the capital Tunis on Wednesday in support of the resistance in Palestine, and raised slogans glorifying the Palestinian resistance against the usurping Israeli occupation, and affirming the right of the Palestinian people to resist the occupation and liberate their land.

The participants in the demonstration, which roamed the streets of the capital, Tunis, demanded an end to the Israeli war on Gaza, and condemned the massacres committed by the occupation against the Palestinians in the Strip.

Anadolu Agency quoted Mohammed al-Kalawi, a member of the executive bureau of the Ennahda movement, as saying, "This is the least duty we do to advocate for the Palestinian cause, and if we can provide something better, we will not skimp, and we would have invited our bases to participate in all demonstrations that support the cause, regardless of the party calling for it."

Al-Kalawi explained that the participation in the demonstration in support of Palestine comes within the framework of the Tunisian people's response to the call of Hamas, which called in an official statement to demonstrate strongly on the International Day in Support of the Palestinian Cause.
