Thousands of Yemenis Protest Israeli Aggression against Syria
TEHRAN (FNA)- Thousands of Yemeni protesters in Hajja province condemned the recent Israeli aggression against Syria.
Protestors, who represented various political, social and religious forces in Yemen, saluted the Syrian Army, raising banners voicing support for the Syrians and their leadership.
They also issued a statement denouncing the Zionists’ aggression and the Arab leaders’ indifference to such brutalities.
They also called on the international community to take steps against Israel and put an end to such aggressions.
Zamar province in Yemen also witnessed an angry protest against the Israeli attack on Syria.
On Sunday, Syria said the Israeli regime had carried out an airstrike targeting a research center in a suburb of Damascus after heavy losses were inflicted on al-Qaeda-affiliated groups by the Syrian army. According to Syrian media reports, Israeli rockets struck the Jamraya research center.
Syria’s Foreign Ministry sent letters to the United Nations and its Security Council stating that Israel’s aggression shows the links between Tel Aviv and terrorist groups operating in Syria including the al-Qaeda-linked al-Nusra Front.
Syrian Information Minister Omran al-Zoabi told reporters in Damascus on Sunday that Syria had the right and the duty to defend its people by all available means and it would not give in to Israeli acts of aggression.
The Israeli attacks on Syria have made the Middle-East more dangerous, the Syrian information minister said.
Also a senior Syrian military source told Russia Today on Monday that the Zionist entity used depleted uranium shells in the strike in Syria.
“When the explosion happened, it felt like an earthquake, then a giant golden mushroom of fire appeared. This tells us that Israel used depleted uranium shells,” the source said.
The Sunday Israeli aggression was Tel Aviv’s second strike on Syria in three days and the third in the last five months.
The Jamraya facility was also targeted in an Israeli airstrike in January.
