Tunisia: Over 60 National Associations Decry Arab Official Silence Over Zionist Entity's Crimes

Tunis/Tunisia — Over 60 national associations and organisations expressed support to the Palestinian people's struggle and resistance against the Zionist entity's oppression on its occupied territories.

They decried in a statement issued Wednesday, the Arab official silence over the Zionist crimes and the escalation of violence in the recent days after residents of the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood refused to be expelled from their homes and forcibly displaced," "attacks that have left dozens of unarmed civilians dead and hundreds wounded," they said.

They commend the Palestinian people's legendary endurance in Al-Quds and their willingness to sacrifice themselves to liberate Palestine and fight colonisation and apartheid.

"The Arab official regimes' race to normalise with the Zionist entity has encouraged it to continue its oppressive policy," they deplored, calling on the Egyptian authorities to lift the blockade on Gaza to facilitate the delivery of aid, and inviting all Arab national forces and all free men worldwide to step up support for the oppressed Palestinian people in Al-Quds, the West Bank, Gaza and all the occupied territories.

The national associations and organisations reiterated in this regard call for the adoption of the law on the criminalisation of normalisation, expressing indignation at "the failure of the Security Council to officially condemn the crimes of the Israeli occupation in Sheikh Jarrah neighbourhood."
