Story Code : 936302
Massive crowds of people marched along streets in the provincial capital city of Sa’ada on Friday, waving Palestinian flags alongside Yemeni ones and chanting slogans in solidarity with the Palestinian cause.
They rejected Washington’s policies and those of its allies in the Middle East region, as they held up pictures of late leader of Yemeni Ansarullah movement Sayyed Hussein Badreddin al-Houthi and chanted “Death to America” and “Death to Israel.”
“We will continue to shout the slogan of freedom to confront the criminal policies of the United States and Israel against nations of the Muslim world. We call on all Muslims to launch a campaign to boycott American and Israeli goods and products,” a final communiqué read.
It added, “It is necessary to confront the enemy’s aggression and to provide financial and manpower assistance to battlefronts in order to force the enemy to stop its aggression against our country.”
“The Yemeni people are ready to be an integral part of the holy al-Quds (Jerusalem) equation as announced by Hezbollah Secretary-General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah,” the statement concluded.
Speaking in a televised address broadcast from the Yemeni capital city of Sana’a on Thursday, Ansarullah leader, Abdul-Malik al-Houthi, emphasized that Yemenis are part of al-Quds equation and will be effectively present in the battle against the Israeli regime.
The Ansarullah chief then praised Iran as the main supporter of resistance front in the region.
Houthi also highlighted that Washington and Tel Aviv have used Takfiri terrorists to create rifts among Muslim nations.
“The Takfiri conspiracy that targeted Syria, Hezbollah and the Iraqi people was a plot at the service of the United States and Israel,” the Ansarullah head said.
Houthi stressed that a peaceful solution to Yemen conflict can be achieved once the Saudi-led coalition ceases it military aggression and brutal siege against the impoverished Arab country.
Separately, Palestinians are expected to hold demonstrations across the occupied West Bank under the banner of “Friday of Rage,” in condemnation of imminent forced expulsions of dozens of Palestinians from their homes in al-Quds neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah and Silwan.
Silwan, home to about 33,000 Palestinians, is located outside the walls of the Old City of al-Quds and barely 5 kilometers (2.4 miles) from Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood, where protests against planned expulsions led to the Israeli onslaught on the Gaza Strip.
At least 260 Palestinians, including 66 children, were martyred in the Zionist regime bombardment of the Gaza Strip in 11 days of conflict that began on May 10. The regime’s airstrikes also brought widespread devastation to the already impoverished territory.
