After being hosted by Real Madrid soccer club, Palestinian teen activist Ahed Tamimi visited Tunisian President Beji Caid Essebsi at his palace; with the meeting taking place on 33rd anniversary of Operation Wooden Leg.

Essebsi hosted Tuesday teen activist Tamimi, who was jailed in the “Israeli”-occupied territories late last year after she was filmed kicking and slapping a Zionist soldier in the West Bank.

"Hosting Tamimi symbolizes Tunisia's recognition of the just Palestinian struggle and its place in the heart of the Tunisian people," Essebsi was quoted as saying.

Tamimi's meeting with Essebsi took place on the 33rd anniversary of Operation Wooden Leg, in which “Israeli” Air Force planes bombed the Palestine Liberation Organization's [PLO] headquarters in Tunisia, martyring dozens of people.

The Tunisian president emphasized his country's support of the Palestinians and recognition of the Palestinian fight to restore their sovereign state with al-Quds as its capital.
