Egyptian Alliance for Development & Human Rights Condemns the violent acts of members of the Muslim Brotherhood affiliated Ennahda Movement against Protesters in Tunisia
The Egyptian Alliance for Development & Human Rights condemns the practices of the Muslim Brotherhood affiliated Ennahda Movement that attempt to spread fear, panic and chaos, as well as assaulting peaceful protesters in Tunisia.
The Alliance highlights that a young protester who was carrying the flag of his country and waving it on the roof of the headquarters of the Ennahda movement in Kairouan, when suddenly one of the Ennahda supporters appeared and threw him from the roof of the building; reminiscent of a similar incident that the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt did during 2013.
The Alliance states that the young man managed to escape certain death after he grabbed an electric wire in the building, to descend unharmed, and the assailant fled the scene, although a number of young men tried to catch him. The alliance confirms the reliance of the Brotherhood’s Ennahda movement on threats and assassinations since the 2011 revolution, which have become a part of daily routine in Tunisia.
The Alliance states that Tunisian President Qais bin Said decided on Sunday, July 25, 2021, to suspend Parliament for a period of 30 days, and to lift the immunity of all its members, and to relieve Prime Minister Hisham Al-Mashishi.
The Egyptian Alliance for Development and Human Rights expresses its full solidarity with the Tunisian people, and its support for the Tunisian state in all the measures it takes to confront extremist terrorist groups.
The Alliance calls upon the international community to confront all attacks the attacks carried out by the extremist Ennahda movement against peaceful protesters.
