Hundreds of Tunisians on Wednesday marched in the center of the capital Tunis in protest of the newly unveiled U.S. Middle East peace plan, also known as the Deal of the Century.
The protesters include members of civil society, professional organizations and political parties as well as independent activists.
“Palestine is not and will never be for sale,” said Noureddine Taboubi, secretary-general of the Tunisian General Labor Union, organizer of the march.
“Al-Quds (Jerusalem) is the eternal capital of the Palestinians,” he added.
Taboubi called for “criminalizing all those who maintain relations with the Zionist entity and condemning all attempts to bring Israel closer to the Arab world.
On Jan. 28 , U.S. President Donald Trump announced the peace plan in Washington in the presence of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
