Ministry of Foreign Affairs hopes UNSC resolution marks start of permanent ceasefire


The Yemeni  Ministry of Foreign Affairs expressed its hope that Security Council Resolution 2735 will mark the beginning of a permanent ceasefire in the Gaza Strip and a complete withdrawal of the Zionist enemy.

In a statement issued today, the ministry also expressed hope that the resolution will initiate the release of all Palestinian detainees, facilitate the return of displaced persons, prevent demographic changes or the shrinking of the Gaza Strip, and ensure the unimpeded entry of humanitarian, food, and medical aid into the region.

The statement emphasized that the Security Council’s resolution does not exonerate the Israeli enemy from its responsibility for committing genocide and war crimes against civilians in all the occupied Palestinian territories.

It urged the United States to fulfill its legal and humanitarian obligations under the United Nations Charter and to cease its extensive political, military, financial, and logistical support for the Israeli enemy.

It reiterated that Palestine is the central cause and urged Arab governments, which have normalized or intend to normalize relations with Israel, to reconsider their stance and support their people’s demands for a just solution and the establishment of a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital.
