Yemeni students rally in solidarity with Gaza amid Israeli attacks

University students held a demonstration Saturday in northern Yemen to express solidarity with Palestinians in the Gaza Strip, who continue to suffer from Israeli occupation and attacks, said media reports.

Hundreds gathered in the northern province of Al-Jawf to show support for Gaza amid ongoing Israeli attacks, according to Houthi-run Al-Masirah TV.

Carrying Palestinian flags, demonstrators protested against Israel’s assaults. They chanted anti-Israeli slogans, expressing support for the people of Gaza.

Early Saturday, the Israeli army expanded its simultaneous ground and air attacks across all governorates of Gaza, following its demand to evacuate residents from wide areas in northern and central parts of the enclave.

It also advanced into the southern part of Gaza City and the eastern areas of Khan Younis in addition to conducting intense airstrikes that resulted in dozens of deaths and injuries in various areas of the territory.

Nearly 34,950 Palestinians, most of them women and children, have been killed since early October, and nearly 78,600 injured, according to Palestinian health authorities.

Seven months into the conflict, vast swathes of Gaza lay in ruins amid a crippling blockade of food, clean water and medicine.

Israel is accused of genocide at the International Court of Justice (ICJ). An interim ruling in January said it is “plausible” that Tel Aviv is committing genocide in Gaza, ordering it to stop such acts and take measures to guarantee that humanitarian assistance is provided to civilians in Gaza.

South Africa on Friday asked the ICJ to order Israel to withdraw from Rafah as part of additional emergency measures over the war.
