Head of Ennahda movement Sheikh Rashid Al-Ghannouchi has expressed concern with attempts by some to return to a program of trying to “annihilate” Islamists in Tunisia, Quds Press reported on Friday.

Al-Ghannouchi downplayed these attempts, saying they are unlikely to succeed. “There are weak attempts, but they are not feasible because the collective voice in Tunis is not to exploit and benefit from calamities; instead the prevailing voice is that of unity and fighting terror,” he said.

Meanwhile, he called for all Tunisians to unite in fighting terror and regain the confidence of the Europeans in their country.

He reiterated that the aggression which targeted Tunis aimed to destroy the state, the revolution, rights and freedoms, democracy, as well as the image of Islam.

Al-Ghannouchi stressed that Tunis is facing an “existential danger” which requires every Tunisian to become involved in the war to defend the country, the revolution and Islam.
