SANA’A, (PIC)– MP Ahmad Bahar, the first deputy-speaker of the Palestinian Legislative Council (PLC), has noted the Yemini role in supporting the Palestinian issue, urging all Arab and Muslim parliaments to support their Palestinian counterparts.

Bahar, who heads a delegation from the PLC comprising of MP Mohammed Shehab, MP Younis Al-Astal, MP Jamilah Al-Shanti, and MP Abdul Rahman Al-Jamal, arrived at the Yemini capital Sana’a on Thursday as part of their tour in a number of Arab and Muslim countries to rally more support for the Palestinian cause.

The PLC delegation met with Yemini lawmaker Hemiar Al-Ahmar, the first-deputy-speaker of the Yemini parliament, and briefed him on the latest developments in the Palestinian arena as well as the Palestinian issue.

They also briefed Al-Ahmar on the crises of the three Palestinian lawmakers who have been in a sit-in tent in the occupied Jerusalem for 172 days now refusing an Israeli order to deport them out of the city and the deportation of the fourth Jerusalem lawmaker, Muhammad Abu Teir, to the West Bank in contravention of international law and conventions.

The issue of Gaza and the five-year old Israeli siege on the Strip, and ways and means to lift the blockade was also part of the discussions between both parties.

For his part, Al-Ahmar hailed the PLC efforts in preserving the Palestinian cause and the Palestinian national constants, asserting that the Palestinian issue occupies the heart and mind of every Yemini individual wherever he is in this world.

He also reiterated the Yemini people’s and leadership’s support for the Palestinian cause all the time, stressing that Arab and Muslim countries should adopt new mechanisms to face the challenges facing the Palestinian and the Arab issues.

The PLC delegation expected to meet the Palestinian community in Sana’a as well as Yemini politicians, journalists, and parliamentarians before they head to Kuwait, the next destination in their tour.
