Tunisia President Receives Ahed Tamimi

Tunisian President Beji Caid Essebsi yesterday received Palestinian teen activist Ahed Tamimi who has recently been released from Israeli prison.

The president said in a statement that his meeting with Tamimi was a tribute from Tunisia to the Palestinian people’s struggles and sacrifices.

For her part, Tamimi expressed gratitude for the Tunisian president’s invitation, pointing out that this is her first visit to an Arab country after she was released from Israeli prison on July 29.

Tamimi’s visit comes as Tunisia commemorates the 33rd anniversary of the Israeli air strike on the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) headquarters in the Hammam El-Shat district, south of Tunis, which killed dozens of Tunisians and Palestinians in 1985.
