The President of the UNFT the Professor Radhia Jerbi claimed that solidarity between Tunisia and Palestine is in consonance with the Tunisian support to the cause of Palestinian detainees who resist to the occupation and said that this day was an occasion for exposing the brutal crimes of occupation against the Palestinian people.
Radhia Jerbi also confirmed that the UNFT is supporting Palestinian women who are involved in the resistance movement, the women prisoners and refugees living under Israeli occupation. They suffer brutal practices and they attend the most heinous crimes against their children and their families, and against the detainees and the prisoners in prisons.
