Wethaq Foundation for Civil Orientation strongly condemns the assassination of National Dialogue Conference Member Dr. Ahmed Sharaf Al-Deen by unknown gunmen today in Sana’a. This terrible act of violence perpetrated against the National Dialogue Conference Member is targeting the political process and attacking the peace and social safety.

We demands the president and the government of Al-Wefaq to act swiftly, conduct a thorough investigation, find out the circumstances of the incident, bring the perpetrators to justice. We warn against the danger of complacency with such a crime, which aims to escalate the strife among the Yemeni parties and will lead the country to further deterioration and insecurity.
We wish to extend our sincere condolences to Dr. Ahmed Sharaf Al-Deen’s family and Ansar Allah in this difficult moment and call upon all parties to cooperate in order to find out the perpetrators and not to be dragged into the will of the perpetrators behind this horrific incident.
