The Hamas’s delegation had participated as well in a student solidarity demonstration organized by the Tunisian General Union of Students at Zaytouna University, where Abu Zuhri delivered a speech, stressing “the significant role of the global student movement, rejecting the crimes of the Israeli occupation, in liberating the world’s youth from the Zionist lobby’s hegemony.”

The visit was concluded by a press conference for the resistance factions held at the headquarters of the National Union of Tunisian Journalists, in which Abu Zuhri spoke about the valor of the resistance and its capability for exhausting the occupation. He hailed the legendary steadfastness of the Palestinian people, and expressed gratitude for the official, factional, and popular role of Tunisia in standing by the Palestinian people, receiving the wounded, sending aid, and organizing eminent pro-Palestine events and demonstrations.
