    Yemen is currently showing unconditional support to the Syrian government, and is one of the few Arab countries that has supported President Bashar al-Assad. In addition, Yemeni Shiite militias, such as Houthis have also showed support for Assad and has sent militiamen to Syria to fight for the government. Besides Lebanon, Yemen was the only Arab league member to absent on a vote to expel Syria from the respective organization. In February 2012 Yemeni Opposition Parliament member Mohammed Nassar al-Hazmi described the step taken by GCC states in expelling Syrian ambassadors and withdrawing Gulf diplomats from Syria as a good and positive, demanding that the Yemeni government to take a similar procedure and expel the Syrian ambassador in Yemen.[5] One month later, in March 2012 a diplomat of the Foreign Affairs Ministry said the Yemeni government could ask the Syrian Ambassador to leave Yemen. Also, Yemeni protesters have been taking to streets, condemning what they dubbed as massacres committed by the Syrian regime against the Syrian people, demanding the Yemeni government to immediately expel the Syrian Ambassador
