 An extended meeting was held in al-Dhale on Tuesday under the chairmanship of the provincial governor, Maj. Gen. Ali Moqbel Saleh in presence of the president of the local leadership of the Southern Transitional Council, Abdullah Mahdi Saeed and a number of local officials, security commanders and representatives of international organizations.

The meeting focused on the recent bombings and armed attacks against international organisations working in the province which resulted in suspending their aid operations, including the International Rescue Committee, ACTED and Oxfam.

The governor of al-Dhale expressed his full support for the humanitarian organizations that provide assistance to thousands of people in the province, affirming that he will do what it takes to protect aid operations.

He also declared that new measures will be undertaken in the near future to respond more effectively to such threats and to help create a climate favorable to the resumption of humanitarian activities in the area.
