Yemen’s Fortitude Turning Tide in Favor of Gaza: Iran’s President

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi lauded the Yemeni nation’s perseverance and resistance, saying their support for Palestine has been extremely effective in deterring the Zionist regime’s atrocities and altered the equations in favor of the people of Gaza.

Raisi held a telephone conversation with Chairman of the Supreme Political Council of Yemen Mahdi Al-Mashat on Monday.

Praising the support of the Yemeni people and warriors for the oppressed and powerful people of Gaza, the Iranian president stated, "This support, in addition to admirable measures such as magnificent protests, declaration of clear and firm positions in backing the oppressed people of Palestine and also trying to cut off the economic arteries of the criminal Zionist regime, will not be forgotten by the free nations of the world and is a source of pride for the Islamic Ummah."

Referring to the deceitful and hypocritical behavior of the Western countries towards the criminal actions of the Zionist regime, Raisi described the countries supporting the Zionist regime as the biggest violators of human rights in the world.

"The silence and inaction of these countries and international organizations towards more than six months of horrific crimes and genocide in Gaza have encouraged the Zionist regime to commit more crimes and increase tension in the region," the president said, his official website reported.

Referring to the courageous initiatives of the Yemeni warriors to stop the genocide of the Palestinian nation, the president stated, "The standing and resistance of the heroic nation of Yemen alongside the Palestinian nation will definitely be effective in deterring the crimes of the Zionist regime and will set the balance in favor of the oppressed people of Gaza."

Raisi also described the development of relations between Iran and Yemen as beneficial to the two countries, the two nations and the Islamic world.

For his part, the Yemeni official congratulated the proud and glorious operation of the armed forces of Iran in response to the Zionist regime’s attack on the Iranian consulate in Syria, and said, "This brave action in punishing an enemy that does not adhere to international laws and does not understand any language except the language of force was a repetition of the glorious Islamic Revolution and derived from the teachings of Imam Khomeini (RA)."

Mashat stated that the proud operation of the armed forces of Iran restored honor and dignity to the Islamic Ummah, and emphasized that the resistance front is a united front and always adheres to confronting the Zionist regime and supporting Iran.

He also emphasized his country's interest in expanding and strengthening relations and interactions with Iran in various fields.
