Renowned Tunisian artist Lotfi Bouchnak leaves role as UN Goodwill Ambassador and calls for Israel’s war crimes accountability.
Lotfi Bouchnak, a renowned Tunisian singer, oud player, composer and public figure, resigns from his position as UN Goodwill Ambassador. He is considered one of the best tenors in the Middle East, North Africa, and the Arab world and has been dubbed as Tunisia’s “Pavarotti”.
His resignation comes to protest human rights and the Israeli war crimes in Gaza, Palestine committed openly before the eyes of the international community. It comes just a day after Israel’s hospital bombing in Gaza, killing over 600 innocents civilians.
The UN has failed twice to adopt a resolution that is calling for a ceasefire in Gaza.
