Yemeni parliament asks government not to receive Abbas

SANA'A, (PIC)-- Yemeni parliament members have tabled a memo with the government asking it not to receive the former PA chief Mahmoud Abbas in Sana'a since his term in office has expired and for siding against resistance in the Israeli aggression on Gaza.

The memo, signed by 58 MPs, said that the Yemeni government should not deal with anyone who opposed resistance especially during the latest war on Gaza because they violated all heavenly and earthly rules that allowed any people under occupation to resist that occupation.

The deputies also asked the government not to hand the assistance allocated for Gaza reconstruction to Abbas because his tenure had expired.

MP Dr. Saleh Al-Sanabani said that Abbas's term as president has ended and he was not fit to speak on behalf of the Palestinians or to represent them because he "sold the Palestine cause and conspired against resistance before the very eyes of the entire world".

He stressed that the assistance should be delivered to resistance leaders and to the government of Ismail Haneyya in Gaza. He proposed the formation of a parliamentary committee that would go to Gaza and help the Palestinian citizens there to overcome their ordeal.
