Yemen boycotts American products
As in most other Arab states, the residents of Yemen have welcomed and supported the campaign organized by the head of the Yemeni parliament, Sheikh Abdullah Bin Hussein Al-Ahmar, calling for the boycott of all American and Israeli products.
According to Al-Watan newspaper, this campaign aims to express the Arab support of the Palestinian people who have been suffering from the Israeli policy.
The supporters of this boycott, mainly oppositionists, held a public conference stressing the importance of boycotting American and Israeli merchandise.
However, it was noted that the organizers of this conference ended up in a local restaurant drinking Coca-Cola, the US-manufactured soft drink. ¯ (Albawaba-MEBG)
