Damascus witnesses Palestinian Solidarity Day with Yemen on 9th anniversary of September 21 Revolution

The Palestinian-Yemeni Brotherhood Association, in cooperation with the Palestinian resistance factions in Syria, organized on Friday a day of solidarity with the Yemeni people in conjunction with the ninth anniversary of the September 21 Revolution.

The Yemeni ambassador to Syria, Abdullah Ali Sabri, confirmed that the September 21 revolution came to announce a new era promising pride, independence, advancement, and development, noting that Yemen was experiencing a vacuum at the political, security, and economic levels.

Sabri explained that foreign hands worked to empower terrorism and its organizations, such as Al-Qaeda and ISIS, in light of the so-called “Arab Spring”, to drag Yemen into fragmentation and division with deceptive and misleading political headlines.

He stated that the free and honorable revolutionaries engaged in the popular movement against foreign guardianship and hegemony until the popular will triumphed under the leadership of a wise and courageous young man represented by Sayyed Abdulmalik Badr al-Din al-Houthi.

The ambassador expressed the depth of the relationship between Yemen and Palestine, especially when the September 21 revolution took the Palestinian issue as a compass and direction for its path, until Yemen became at the heart of the axis of resistance confronting the Zionist-American project in the region.

Sabri appreciated the Syrian government’s firm and principled positions in support of Yemen, represented by the resistant Arab President Dr. Bashar al-Assad, as well as the roles of the resistance axis, which was a partner of Yemen in steadfastness and victory.

He stressed that Sana’a will only be on the side of the nation’s just causes, pointing to the Zionist enemy’s annoyance at the developments taking place in Yemen, especially with regard to the growing military and missile capabilities of the Yemeni army.

In turn, the Head of the Palestinian-Yemeni Brotherhood Association, Khaled Abdulmajeed, confirmed that the September 21 revolution was launched in the face of tyranny, hegemony, and foreign guardianship, which made the forces of international aggression, with some of their Arab tools, seek to distort its image and turn its compass.

He pointed out that over the past eight years, the Yemeni people have gone through a siege and an absurd war, during which they demonstrated the highest signs of steadfastness to preserve the principles and achievements of the revolution.

For his part, the Secretary-General of the Palestinian Leadership of the Arab Socialist Baath Party – Secretary-General of the Thunderbolt Organization, Dr. Muhammad Qais, indicated that the aggression forces over the course of nine years, led by the Zionist-American enemy, have tried to thwart this glorious revolution by supporting terrorism, tightening the siege, and destroying infrastructure with all brutality and aggression in order to discourage Yemen from its resistance role.

Meanwhile, the representative of the resistance movement and Hezbollah’s Arab and international relations officer, Ammar al-Musawi, explained that what Yemen is being exposed to is a result of its positions and its firm belief in the inevitability of liberating Palestine from the abomination of the Zionist occupation.

He considered the September 21 revolution a turning point in the history of Yemen from a country that fully followed regional and international powers and axes to a country that prides itself on its independence and belonging to its nation and its just causes.

In the speech of the Palestinian resistance factions, the Secretary-General of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine – General Command, Dr. Talal Naji, hailed Yemen’s steadfastness and victories under the leadership of Sayyed Abdulmalik Al-Houthi.

He pointed to the extent of the destruction inflicted on Yemen as a result of the aggression, the plundering of its oil and gas resources, and the control of its strategic location in Bab al-Mandab and other ports, reiterating the support of the forces of the Palestinian resistance factions for Yemen and their solidarity with its people and revolution.

On the solidarity day at the Kafr Sousse Cultural Center in Damascus, speeches were delivered in the presence of a crowd of the Syrian and Palestinian political and cultural elite, representatives of the embassies of Iran, Venezuela, and the Lebanese Hezbollah, a group of members of the Yemeni community in Syria, and members of the diplomatic mission.
