Caretaker Minister for Foreign Affairs, Engineer Hisham Sharaf Abdullah, sent a letter to the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Antonio Guterres, to protest against the ongoing US-British military aggression on Yemen, the latest of which targeted the capital Sana’a and three other governorates with 22 airstrikes.

Minister Sharaf emphasized in his message that the US-British military aggression on Yemen is illegal and unlawful, as the aggression came as punishment for Yemen’s ethical and humanitarian stance in supporting the people and resistance of Palestine in the Gaza Strip and calling for an end to the genocide against the Palestinian people.

He affirmed that Sana’a’s position is clear and evident, and it is committed to maintaining international peace and security, the safety of maritime navigation, and international trade in the Red Sea region and the Bab al-Mandab Strait, except for Israeli-linked ships or those heading to the occupied Palestinian ports, as well as American and British ships, until the aggression on Gaza ends, the siege is lifted and food, medical, and fuel aid is delivered to northern and southern Gaza.
