in fact this change is the first thing to do.
I suggest you to read also 

It is more clear if know latin alphabet better than arabic.
In fact the icu_chain could be:

<icu_chain locale="dz">
    <transliterate rule="\'>\ "/>
    <transliterate rule="[:Number:] { '-' >  "/>
    <transform rule="[:Control:] Any-Remove"/>
    <tokenize rule="l"/>
    <transform rule="[[:WhiteSpace:][:Punctuation:]] Remove"/>
    <transform rule="NFD"/>
    <transform rule="[:Nonspacing Mark:] Remove"/>
    <transform rule="NFC"/>
    <casemap rule="l"/>

This a basic for all languges, read ICU site to understand better the 
options availabe. You can start for here: 

In fact Zebra (the indexing system of Koha) uses ICU quite directly.
You can do same test with yaz-icu:
