Chief of Association of Yemeni Scholars passes away
The Yemeni Scholars Association mourns its Secretary-General, and the spokesperson for the Ansar Allah movement says the Saudi coalition prevented the deceased's treatment.
The Association of Yemeni Scholars mourned Tuesday its Secretary-General, Sayyed Abdul Salam Abbas Al-Wajeeh, who passed away as a result of an illness he suffered months ago.
In a statement, the Association said that the condition of Al-Wajeeh's health condition had worsened as a result of the Saudi-led sinful siege and the refusal of the coalition of aggression and the United Nations to allow him to leave Yemen for treatment.
The Association indicated that Al-Wajeeh dedicated his time to reviving the original Islamic heritage and writing valuable and precious books, and had a major and active role in reviving the scientific movement, despite the threats he was exposed to by the ruling regime in the early 90s and by extremists.

The statement pointed out that the life of Al-Wajeeh was marked by many honorable stations and brave stances, especially in the six wars of Saada, and in the face of the US-Saudi-Zionist aggression on Yemen.
The late Yemeni scholar was known for his strong position in support of the Palestinian cause, Hezbollah's resistance in Lebanon, and the Islamic revolution in Iran.
In the same context, the Spokesperson for the Yemeni Ansar Allah movement, Mohammad Abd Al-Salam, expressed his condolences for the death of the Secretary-General of the Association of Yemeni Scholars.
Abd Al-Salam indicated that the scholar's health condition had worsened due to the siege imposed on Yemen and the aggression's refusal to allow the late to leave for treatment abroad.
