Rally in Tunisia Condemns Israeli War on Gaza, Silence of World

Dozens of Tunisians on Wednesday participated in a rally in the capital Tunis to protest the ongoing Israeli war on Gaza.

According to an Anadolu reporter, the participants of the rally, organized by the local Palestine Supporters Association, condemned the silence of the Arab and international community over what’s going on in Gaza due to Israeli airstrikes.

Addressing the rally, Mohammad Al-Zahafi called for supporting Palestinian rights and approving a law criminalizing the normalization of ties with Israel.

Several protest rallies were held across Tunisian cities since the start of the Israeli onslaught against Gaza on Oct. 7.

The conflict in Gaza began when the Palestinian group Hamas initiated Operation Al-Aqsa Flood — a multi-pronged surprise attack on Oct. 7 that included a barrage of rocket launches and infiltrations into Israel by land, sea, and air.

Hamas said the incursion was in retaliation for the storming of the Al-Aqsa Mosque and growing violence by Israeli settlers against Palestinians.

The Israeli military then launched a relentless bombardment of Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip.

Nearly 8,000 people have been killed in the conflict, including at least 6,546 Palestinians and 1,400 Israelis.

Gaza’s 2.3 million residents have been running out of food, water, medicine, and fuel, and aid convoys allowed into Gaza have carried only a fraction of what is needed.
