The committee extended "the sincerest condolences to the families of the martyrs of the armed and security forces and the nationals of brotherly and friendly countries who were victims of terrorism and extremism."
It pointed out that assassinations of army officers and foreigners in cities were "desperate attempts carried out by elements of the terrorist organization after it suffered heavy losses among it ranks."

"Such terrorist acts will not discourage the security forces, the armed forces and the patriotic citizens from carrying out their religious and national duty to uproot terrorism wherever it exists," the source said.
The committee urged all people and political parties to stand as one to eliminate terrorism, and called people to report any information that could help uncover those behind the terrorist operations of the al-Qaeda in Sana'a and other provinces and cities.
