Statement: “Palestine is the compass of the armed struggle waged in Yemen”

Palestine is the direction of Arab liberation against an entire century of western colonization and imperialism against sovereign Arab states.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The Executive Committee of the Yemen Solidarity Council condemns, in its strongest terms, the assaults carried out by the Zionist occupation against innocent Palestinian civilians. What we have witnessed the past few weeks only confirms to us that armed struggle, in its entirety and its legality, is the only way forward in the pursuit of peace, national Palestinian self-determination and decolonization.

We join our partners and peers in standing tall in solidarity with the Palestinian people and the Palestinian right to self-defence against forced evictions, settlements, terrorist attacks on Gaza and all other horrible crimes against humanity to which the Zionist entity is guilty of and known for.

We join hands with our Yemeni peers and partners by joining the Yemen-led Popular Campaign to Support Palestine, and we expect the Yemeni people to turn to the streets once more in solidarity with its brothers and sisters in occupied Palestine. One such event has been scheduled this Monday, May 17th, announced by the Governor of Hodeidah Mohammad Ayyash Qoheem.

Palestine is the direction of Arab liberation against an entire century of western colonization and imperialism against sovereign Arab states. Palestine is the compass of the armed struggle waged in Yemen. The enemy is one and united, but so are the forces of liberation carrying the torch and fluttering flag of struggle.

Long live the Palestinian People’s struggle.
Godspeed to the wounded and the arrested.
