Adel Tayari -TDO- (TUNISIA) The protests in the state of Tataouine in the southern Tunisian on Monday (22 May) took place in a dangerous juncture that resulted in a peaceful nature, which it has maintained since its inception weeks ago where a number of security vehicles were burned and burned security headquarters in the southern Tunisian city of Qabali, in addition to the death of one of the protesters after being hit by a police car four-wheel drive.
These violent and surprising developments have sent many questions about the legitimacy of protest movements on the one hand, and on the political parties accused of exploiting the protesters and pushing them to clash with the police forces and the army. Many experts stressed that what is happening in Tataouine is dangerous and casts doubt on the attempts of some political parties accused of pushing the protests out of their peaceful nature to create chaos in the country and the security chaos in the implementation of external agenda refuses to stabilize the situation in Tunisia and to end the state of consensus and democratic political transition especially that these protests continued despite all the solutions that have been submitted and which were welcomed by large numbers of protesters which confirms that the purpose behind the ignition of the protests is the destruction of the state and its purpose has nothing to do with development, but it has other goals. Several experts confirm that the crisis has entered a dangerous phase planned by a group of parties, most notably the Tunisian project led by Mohsen Marzouq the news also points to the involvement of Hizb ut-Tahrir, which has radical Islamic clout in the events, as well as other parties from radical leftist movements.
For reference, the government submitted a proposal on 15 May 2017 to deposit 50 million dinars in the Development Fund in the region and the operation of 1500 people in oil companies, including 1000 in the month of June 2017 and the rest in the beginning of 2018 in addition to the operation of 2000 people in the environmental and gardening companies, but the proposal was rejected by a number of protesters who went to the Al-Fana area on May 18, where the main pumping stations for oil are located and more than 50 tents were erected in the area as a protest movement and a response to the speech of the President of the Republic on May 10 at the Conference Palace in the capital, which announced that the oil institutions will be under the protection of the National Army.
