Al-Thawra Newspaper: Yemen has rejected a proposed UNICEF assistance of 786 school bags containing maps bearing the name “Israel” instead of Palestine.
The security services in Hodeidah port seized these bags yesterday, which the organisation was seeking to distribute to students in the Hodeidah governorate.
The inspection of the products was carried out with the presence of the director of security of the province Colonel Hadi al-Kahlani, and the director of the branch of the Supreme Council for Humanitarian Affairs, Jaber al-Razhi. The bags were rejected and UNICEF informed of the need to get these shipments back.
Al-Razhi explained that it is not the first time that such bags have been seized, as many quantities have already been received in the past.
He pointed out that these actions and activities carried out by these organisations in the name of providing assistance to the Yemeni people are considered as provocative.
“It comes within a framework that serves the agendas of the forces of evil and global arrogance, America and Israel, and in an attempt to pass on the culture of normalization with the occupier onto our children”, he added
