Demonstrators in Tunisia were asked to “not damage property in demonstrations”


Tunisian President Kays Said warned the youth not to damage property during demonstrations.

According to a written statement made by the presidency, Said met with citizens in the El-Minihle region in the northwest of Tunisia after the violence in some parts of the country since Thursday.

Emphasizing the right to work, freedom and national dignity of the people of Tunisia, Said warned of those who appoint citizens, benefit from their poverty and despair, act only in the dark, aim to spread chaos rather than fulfill the demands of the people, and then do not care about the victims.

President Said also called on the youth not to damage property during demonstrations.

The management of public affairs depends on moral values, not alliances and maneuvers; Noting that it is based on fixed principles that cannot be the subject of bargaining or blackmail, Said emphasized that chaos is not a way of doing these things.

Protests against the curfew

The capital Tunisia and some provinces have been witnessing the night demonstrations organized in response to the curfew taken under Kovid-19 measures since Thursday. There is a clash between the security forces and protesters from time to time at the demonstrations.

Spokesperson of the Tunisian Interior Ministry, Halid al-Hauni, stated that the youth between the ages of 15 and 25 who participated in the demonstrations burned tires and tried to prevent the advance of the security forces by setting fire to garbage containers.

In addition, Hayuni stated that some of the demonstrators made attempts such as damaging private property and looting shops, and shared the information that 632 people were detained and sent to the judiciary in the events.

In a statement it made, the Nahda Movement in Tunisia called the people to stand alone against the violence in the demonstrations.
