December 10 2001


Thousands of Yemenis staged demonstrations following Friday prayers in protest of the fresh Zionist aggressions on the Palestinian people. During the demonstrations, people shouted anti-Israeli slogans and called on all Arabs to stand by the Palestinians in their war against the Israeli occupying forces. The demonstrators also submitted a petition to the United Nations office in Sanaa, denouncing the war atrocities perpetrated by the war criminal Ariel Sharon. The petition further called on the U.N. to intervene to put an end to Israeli terrorism and warned against the leniency and silence over the atrocities carried out by the Zionist state.
