Engaging with occupiers is betrayal of Palestinian people: Tunisian President

Normalization with Israel would be a betrayal of the Palestinian people, Tunisian President Kais Saied said in a speech on official television.

"Normalization with Israel is impossible. Tunisia's position against normalization is unchanged. Our position on the draft law criminalizing normalization, which is being discussed in parliament, has not changed. If it changes, it would be a betrayal against the Palestinian people," Saied said.

He also emphasized that Tunisia will continue to stand by Palestine with all its strength.

"Tunisia will provide all kinds of support to Palestine until the occupation ends. The Palestinian struggle against the occupation is a struggle for the rights of the oppressed. Any association with the occupying state is a betrayal of the Palestinian people, and those who commit this offense should be subjected to Article 60 of the Penal Code," he added.


Hamas' military wing, the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades, announced that they launched a comprehensive attack against Israel called "Al-Aqsa Flood" on the morning of October 7.

While thousands of rockets were fired from Gaza towards Israel, armed groups entered the settlements in the region. The Israeli army also launched an attack on the Gaza Strip with dozens of warplanes. The Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza announced that Israel killed 9 thousand 227 people, including 3 thousand 760 children, 2 thousand 326 women, and 397 elderly people. It injured at least 32 thousand people in its attacks on Gaza.

It was reported that 1400 Israelis, including 324 soldiers, were killed and 5 thousand 132 Israelis were wounded in the attacks from Gaza.

The Israeli army hit Damascus and Aleppo airports. As the Middle East is once again turning into a bloodbath, a deadline has been set for nearly 2 and a half million Palestinians to leave the blockaded Gaza.

In the occupied West Bank, 106 Palestinians were killed in attacks by Israeli forces and Jewish settlers. In Israel's attacks on Gaza, 38 journalists were killed.

In the clashes between the Israeli army and Hezbollah on the Israel-Lebanon border since October 8, 55 Hezbollah members and 4 civilians, one of whom was a journalist, were killed. Three Israeli soldiers and one Israeli civilian were killed in the attacks organized by Lebanon.

Most recently, Israel attacked the Jabalia Refugee Camp in Gaza, killing civilians.
