The Yemeni Cabinet decided to take off a one-day salary of all Yemeni employees working for public, mixed and private sectors in order to support the uprising of the Palestinian people and their martyr operations against the ruthless Israeli forces. The Cabinet precised in its meeting last Tuesday that the money generated would be transferred to a bank account that would be used to support the Intifadah in the Palestinian occupied territories. The Cabinet also approved the mechanism of mobilizing public support chip in alleviation of the Palestinian people sufferings.
