PIJ, Ansar Allah, Yemeni gov condemn Nablus massacre
Following the brutal massacre perpetrated by Israeli forces against Palestinians in Nablus today, a set of statements of condemnation were issued from Gaza and Yemen.
Following the Israeli occupation's massacre in Jenin that took the lives of 11 Palestinians, the Palestinian Islamic Jihad Movement's Secretary-General, Ziad Al-Nakhalah, described the Israeli aggression against Nablus as a heinous crime committed by the occupation against the Palestinian people.
"It is our duty as resistance forces to respond to this crime without hesitation," stressing that "the Palestinian people are united in confronting the enemy," Al-Nakhala added.
In the same context, the bureau of the PIJ's prisoners announced that "the blood of the martyrs would ignite the flame of revolution and intifada."

Additionally, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Sanaaa government vehemently condemned the continued escalation of the Israeli occupation against Palestinians, which resulted in the death of 10 and the injury of others.
In a statement, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Sanaa government said, "The Israeli escalation will have dire consequences and will negatively affect the security and stability of the region."
Sanaa called on "the international community, and foremost the Security Council, to assume its responsibilities in protecting the Palestinian people and restoring their rights, and putting an end to the enemy's crimes and brutal policies that destabilize the region and the world."
"Yemen's solidarity with the Palestinian people in the face of Zionist aggression and our support for the legitimate Palestinian right in establishing a Palestinian state on the entirety soil of Palestinian land with Al-Quds Al-Sharif as its capital," the statement read.
Furthermore, the politburo of the Ansar Allah movement also condemned the Israeli aggression on Nablus, stressing that "the Israeli enemy would not have persisted in its attacks against the Palestinian people had it not been for the American support and the disgraceful complicity of some Arab regimes."
Lebanese Hezbollah also issued a statement strongly condemning the Israeli aggression against Nablus.

In its statement, Hezbollah offered "to the struggling Palestinian people and all its resistance factions, especially the Islamic Jihad Movement, its deepest condolences and blessings for the righteous martyrs, who wrote epics of heroism and pride in the city of Nablus, and confronted the machine of terrorism and Zionist aggression with patience and steadfastness."
"The Israeli occupation forces' brutality and cruelty targeting innocent civilians confirms that this enemy is deterred from its evil only by the resistance's rifle and their honorable arms, which will teach the enemy lessons that will reveal to him the extent of his foolishness and put an end to his arrogance and terror," the statement read.
Hezbollah reiterated its "solidarity with the Palestinian people and its standing by it in all the choices taken by its honorable leadership, which preserve its security and liberate its land."
