A Tunisian Algerian Joint Statement Condemns the Genocidal War in Gaza

A delegation representing the Tunisian Assembly of the People’s Representatives, chaired by Mr. Ibrahim Bouderbala, Speaker of the Assembly, conducted official discussions in Algeria from October 24th to 27th, 2023. Following these deliberations with the People’s National Assembly of Algeria, a joint statement has been issued, encapsulating the shared perspectives and outcomes of their visit.

In their comprehensive assessment, both delegations scrutinized the dire situation in Gaza and the persisting turmoil in the remaining areas of the occupied Palestinian territories. They decried the relentless and savage aggression perpetrated by the Zionist War machine. This brutal onslaught, targeting the defenseless Palestinian populace—comprising children, women, and the elderly—extends to the systematic destruction of residences, schools, hospitals, places of worship, and critical infrastructure. All of this occurs against a backdrop of an unsettling international silence.

With unequivocal resolve, both sides vehemently condemn the genocidal war waged by the occupying entity and its governing authorities, constituting egregious war crimes. The Algerian and Tunisian delegations implore global media to uphold neutrality and embrace objectivity in disseminating information regarding the harrowing crimes unfolding against the Palestinian people at the hands of the Zionist occupation.

Expressing strong censure, both parties condemn the positions adopted by states and organizations that lend support to Israeli war crimes. They also decry the glaring double standards, a stark contradiction to international law and human rights, particularly those pertaining to the protection of civilians during times of conflict.

Affirming the legitimacy of the Palestinian struggle against occupation, the joint statement underscores the inalienable right of the Palestinian people to establish their independent state, designating Al-Quds Al-Sharif as its capital.

Furthermore, both sides condemn the reprehensible inaction by international parliamentary organizations. They strongly denounce the imprudent statements made by the President of the Inter-Parliamentary Union, Duarte Pacheco, who aligned himself with the Zionist occupation, thereby forsaking the neutrality mandated by his role within this international parliamentary body.
