African countries agree to expel Israel from AU.
The Zionist regime was accepted as an observer member of the African Union at its last meeting. This decision was made by Moussa Faki Mahamat the chairman of the African Union Commission.
Many Arab-African countries of the African Union reacted sharply to the measure. Many of these countries see the inclusion of the Zionist regime in the African Union as a setback for the Palestinian ideal.
Algeria, along with 13 African Union member states, called for the revocation of the Zionist regime’s membership in the Union and the preservation of the African Union’s values and positions.
