SANAA, Nov. 16 — The Yemeni government on Friday condemned Israel’s aggression in the Gaza Strip, and called for the international community to bear responsibility and take swift action to stop the “brutal offensive.”
The government of Yemen announced its extreme condemnation of Israel’s aggression in the Gaza Strip, and expressed the Yemeni people’s solidarity with the Palestinian people at all times, the state-run Saba news agency quoted a Cabinet spokesman as saying.
“The Yemeni government calls for the international community to bare their responsibilities towards the Zionist offensive and take swift action to stop this brutal aggression,” said the unnamed spokesman.
At least 24 Palestinians and three Israelis have been killed in the three-day conflict following the Israeli assassination on Wednesday of Ahmed al-Jaabari, commander of the Hamas military wing.
Meanwhile, thousands of Yemenis have been staging rallies across the country since Wednesday to condemn the Israeli aggression and express solidarity with the Gaza-led Hamas movement and the Palestinian people.
