Tunis/Tunisia — The executive board of the Association of Tunisian Judges (French: AMT) strongly denounced the "Israeli colonialist practices in al-Quds" and condemned its "terrorist acts" which "constitute a violation of international laws and the right of the Palestinian people to self-determination" as well as an "aggression against their territories and their Nation".
In a statement issued on Tuesday, the AMT expressed its solidarity and full support to the residents of the Sheikh Jarrah neighbourhood in al-Quds East and the entire Palestinian people for the recovery of their legitimate rights, on their occupied territories, and the establishment of an independent state with al-Quds as its capital.
It condemns "the systematic killings perpetrated by the Zionist occupier against unarmed Palestinians in al-Quds and the Gaza Strip, which have resulted in countless victims, including women and children", pointing to "state terrorism carried out by Zionist forces against civilians".
It calls on the international community to assume its responsibilities in protecting the Palestinian people against the heinous crimes and serious human rights violations of which they are victims and to bring the perpetrators before international criminal justice.
It also calls on the parliament to speed up the adoption of the draft law on the criminalisation of normalisation with the Zionist entity.
The AMT also welcomes Tunisia's call, as an Arab member of the Security Council, for a meeting on Monday on the escalating violence and hostilities of the Israeli authorities against the occupied Palestinian territories.
According to the Palestinian Ministry of Health, the Israeli bombardment of the Gaza Strip has killed 24 people and injured more than 100, including several in serious condition, over the past two days, in addition to causing extensive material damage.
