During this meeting, the Grand Jurist’s representative highlighted the catastrophic humanitarian situation in Yemen and said: “The Yemeni nation have offered thousands of martyrs to defend their country and they have suffered shortages of all kinds, but by the will of God, the current situation in Yemen will be over by the end of this year.” The Grand Jurist’s representative further elaborated:

At the end of this meeting, Sheikh Dhakeri thanked all activists, particularly the Shia Rights Watch and Nonviolence Incorporation for their efforts to voice the oppressed call of the Yemenis on an international stage.
