Yemen Condemns Attacks on Qatari, Saudi, UAE Embassies in Syria

The Yemeni government condemned the attacks on the embassies of Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in the Syrian capital of Damascus, the state- run Saba news agency reported on Monday.

Following the Arab League's (AL) suspension of Syria's membership on Saturday, Syrian pro-government protesters expressed resentment toward the pan-Arab group's stance.

Rowdy crowds pelted the Qatari embassy in Damascus with eggs and tomatoes and shouted obscenities at Qatari Prime Minister Hamad bin Jasim al-Thani, who headed the AL emergency session that made the decision.

Others stormed the Saudi embassy near the Qatari compound to bring down the Saudi flag. Pro-government protesters also attacked the UAE embassy in Damascus.

"The Yemeni government denounced the attacks on the embassies of Saudi Arabia, UAE and Qatar in Damascus, urging the Syrian government to shoulder its responsibility to protect the interests, institutions and embassies of the brotherly and friendly countries in Syria," Saba said, citing the Yemeni government's statement.

"The Yemeni government urged all Syrian forces to refrain from actions that provoke further violence and stressed the importance of holding an open dialogue between the Syrian rivals to ensure reaching peaceful solutions to end their political crisis," the statement said.

The Yemeni government itself has been in the grip of a 10-month- old political crisis triggered by mass protests demanding an end to President Ali Abdullah Saleh's 33-year rule.
