Yemen Condemns US Aggression on Baghdad, Stresses Support for Iraq’s Sovereignty

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs strongly condemned the US aggression on Baghdad, killing of the leader of the Iraqi Hezbollah Brigades, Abu Bakr al-Saadi.

The ministry affirmed in a statement, Thursday, that this aggression is a blatant violation of Iraq’s sovereignty, security, and stability.

The ministry expressed condolences and sympathy from Yemen to the Iraqi government, people, and the family of the deceased.

It emphasized that these American criminal acts threaten to expand the scope of war in the region and aim to protect the Zionist entity and enable it to continue its crimes against the Palestinian people in Gaza.

The statement expressed the solidarity of Yemen with Iraq and its support for all measures taken to protect its sovereignty and maintain its security and stability.

The US military announces carrying out a drone strike against the eastern section of the Iraqi capital Baghdad, killing three people, including a senior commander of Iraq’s Kata’ib Hezbollah resistance group.

The Wednesday strike came “in response to the attacks” on US troops and killed “a Kata’ib Hezbollah commander responsible for directly planning and participating in attacks on US forces in the region,” the military’s Central Command said on social media.

Kata’ib Hezbollah identified the senior commander as Abu Baqr al-Saadi, and referred to the rest of the victims as other ranking officials.
