Mass Rallies Across Yemen in Support of Gaza and Palestinian Resistance
They took to the streets of the capital, Sanaa, and other major cities and districts to voice their full support for Palestinians and denounce heinous crimes committed by the apartheid “Israeli” entity with backing from the US and the UK.

The demonstrators praised in a statement military operations by the Yemeni armed forces against American and British targets, including US aircraft carrier USS Eisenhower, as well as “Israeli” shipping in the Red Sea, Arabian Sea, the Indian Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea.

They condemned the “Israeli” entity’s continued crimes against Palestinian lives and property in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, affirming full support for the Palestinian resistance against the months-long “Israeli” aggression.

Describing certain regional Arab states as “negligent” and “complicit” in the crimes, the statement called on the international community to take serious action in support of the Palestinian people’s rights.

The demonstrators stressed their steadfastness in supporting Palestinians and vowed to confront US and British conspiracies against the Yemeni people on military, economic, political and the media fronts.

“Yemeni people will not stand idly by in the face of the crimes of the American, British, and Zionist enemy and their conspiracies,” the statement said.

It also renewed the Yemeni call for a comprehensive boycott of American and “Israeli” goods and companies that support the illegal entity, underscoring the boycott as an effective weapon.

Yemeni forces have carried out scores of similar pro-Palestinian operations since last October, when the “Israeli” entity launched its war on Gaza.

American and British forces have been staging airstrikes against the Arab Peninsula nation in order to force it to stop its pro-Palestinian operations.

Most recently, American and British warplanes and US warships targeted the western Yemeni provinces of Sanaa, Hodeida and Taizz, causing the martyrdom of at least 16 people and wounding more than 40 others.

The Yemeni forces have vowed to continue their military operations in support of the oppressed Palestinian people until the apartheid “Israeli” entity stops its war and siege on Gaza.

Nearly 37,000 Palestinians have been martyred, most of them women and children, and some 83,000 others have sustained injuries in the war that began following the retaliatory Operation Al-Aqsa Flood staged by Gaza’s resistance movements.

More than 1.7 million people have been internally displaced during the brutal military onslaught as well.
