A number of national organizations and parties in Tunisia called for a national march of solidarity with the people of Palestine. A mass action took place in the Tunisian Capital.
The US Embassy in Tunisia said on Wednesday it would close to the public for routine services on Thursday and Friday in an abundance caution, due to expected pro-Palestinian protests in the country.
Demonstrations will also take place on Friday, as Hamas leaders called for a day of support throughout the Arab world.
“In an abundance of caution, the embassy is closed to the public for routine services on Thursday, October 12 and Friday, October 13,” the embassy said in a statement, adding that it is not aware of specific or credible threat at this time.
