Tunisia Condemns Inhumane Practices of Israeli Army

Tunis — Tunisia condemned the inhumane practices by the Israeli occupier in the Palestinian territories, reasserting its support to the Palestinian brotherly people.

In a statement released public, Friday, by the Foreign Ministry, Tunisia denounces these practices which "undermine the feelings of the Muslims during the month of Ramadan, in flagrant violation of basic human rights and international charters."

Tunisia, the statement underlines, is following with deep concern the degradation of the inhumane and security situation in the Palestinian territories as well as the numerous abuses committed by the Israeli armies against the Palestinians in the West Bank : a policy of collective punishment, a blockade imposed on the Palestinian villages, making innocent victims, arbitrary arrests, the demolition of houses and the forced deportation of Palestinian families.

Tunisia calls on the international community for an urgent action to make Israel assume the moral and legal responsibility as regards the developments of the situation in the Palestinian occupied territories. It also requests to make pressure on Israel to resume negotiations, put an end to bloodshed, guarantee dignity of the Palestinians and protect their legitimate rights.
