Mohammed al-Zawari was not the first Tunisian martyr for Palestine, but before him, many Tunisian children won this honor. Imran Al-Gilani Al-Moghadami, Khalid ibn Salih al-Gelasi, Faisal al-Hashayashi, Sami bin Taher al-Hajj Ali, Riyad ibn Hashem bin Jima and many others in this petition have dedicated their lives to the first question of the world Islamic.
In January 2008, Tunisia received the body of eight martyrs during the Operation of Displacement between the Zionist regime and Hezbollah. These bodies belonged to the following martyrs:
Miloud Ben Najeh, originally from Medenine, died as a martyr on 27 November 1987 in a gliding aircraft operation of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine / General Command.
Imran Al-Gilani Al-Moghadami, who died as a martyr on 27 April 1988 in an operation in response to the assassination of Khalil al-Wuzir (nicknamed Abu Jahad) in Tunisia.
During this operation, Khalid ibn Saleh al-Halaisi, Faisal al-Hashayashi, Sami bin Taher al-Hajj Ali, Riyad ibn Hashem bin Jamaa, Kamal bin al-Saudi al-Badri, and Talib Baliq Bin Muhammad Anwar al- Aljabi were also martyred.
Martyr Mohammad al-Zawari was murdered in front of his house with eight bullets hit in the head. Chahid Battalions Ezzaddin Qasemont writes a letter of condolence on the occasion of his martyrdom: Martyr Zawari was one of the commanders who oversaw the Ababil aircraft; the same plane used in the operation “Al-Asaf Al-Maqul” in 2014.
“The command of the al-Zawari pilot has joined the Palestinian line of resistance. He was a model for the youth of the Arab and Islamic Ummah in the Chahid Ezaddin Qasem battalions 10 years ago to prioritize the Palestinian problem. join the jihad to defend Quds, Palestine and the Islamic Ummah, “he continued.
The list of Tunisian martyrs on the Palestinian side does not stop there. In December 1992, Omar Qatat was martyred during the transfer of humanitarian aid to Palestinians in Lebanese camps in southern Lebanon. In January 1993, Faisal al-Hashishi was martyred in an operation against the Zionist enemy in southern Lebanon.
On 11 January 1995, Sami bin Taher al-Hajj Ali and his comrades ambushed the middle of the road between al-Tiba city in Lebanon and the Zionist city of Mascafeam in occupied Palestine, and he was martyred during the operation.
Many Tunisians rushed to help their Palestinian brothers and were confronted with Zionist kidnappers, many of whom were martyred.
In addition, Tunisia has always embraced displaced Palestinians. After the Israeli invasion of Lebanon in 1982, Tunisia was the refuge of many Palestinian resistance commanders and thousands of fighters. Moreover, from 1982 to 1994, the country was the seat of the Palestine Liberation Organization and Yasser Arafat, which led Israel to attack the south of the capital Tunisia in October 1985. At that time, the main office of the organization was located in this area and 68 Tunisians and Palestinians were martyred by the attack.
Since the beginning of the Israeli aggression, Tunisians have always considered the Palestinian issue as their first priority and have embraced the Palestinians with sympathy. May the Muslim nations unite to eliminate the Zionist parasite and destroy it completely.
