We have to make sure that Israel would never launch an aggression against us, bombard an institution in Iraq, or assassinate an official in Tunisia or in Malta,'' in reference to the Israeli many committed crimes against Arabs "There would never be a peace without the retaining of the land in full and without the security of each Arab citizen,'' the President underlined.
