TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) – A number of Tunisian political parties called on the Arab country’s people to stage protests at the Israeli regime’s recent acts of violence directed at Palestinians.

The Tunisian parties and activists condemned the Tel Aviv regime’s move to shut down the al-Aqsa Mosque and preventing the Palestinian worshippers from attending the holy site, the Arabic-language Al-Manar TV network reported.

The Tunisian General Labour Union and the Popular Current are among the parties decrying the Israeli regime and calling for mass protests on Tuesday in solidarity with Palestinians.

In a statement, the General Labour Union said the Zionist regime has waged an unprecedented religious war that proves the racist nature of the regime.

The Israeli regime on Friday shut down al-Aqsa Mosque after a deadly shooting at the holy mosque’s compound in the Old City of occupied East Jerusalem al-Quds.

The gunfight took place just outside the Haram al-Sharif (Temple Mount) and left three Palestinians and two Israeli police officers dead.

Following the incident, the Israeli police closed the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound, briefly detained Sheikh Muhammad Hussein, the grand mufti of Jerusalem al-Quds, and canceled Muslim Friday prayers at the site.
