UAE reunites Yemeni Jewish family after 15 years of separation

Abu Dhabi – Government of United Arab Emirates (UAE) helped a Yemeni Jewish family get reunited after 15 years of separation, and made arrangements for other members of the family from London to join them.

According to Emirates News Agency (WAM), UAE authorities facilitated the travel of family members from Yemen to Emirates, which the family members refer to as “nothing short of a miracle and the realization of an impossible dream”.

“We thank the UAE for their great support in arranging the reunion. This is an example of the UAE’s humanitarian approach, as well as of its noble values of tolerance and coexistence,” one of the Jewish family members said.

“I never imagined seeing them again. I never imagined hugging them”, said a female family member while tears in her eyes.

The old father of the Jewish family said after seeing his children after years of separation, “I feel as if I were reborn today. I am so happy to have met all my children and grandchildren. I am also overjoyed to be in the UAE, the land of tolerance, coexistence and goodness”.

“Sincere thanks to UAE for giving us this opportunity. May Allah bless them, they’ve given us everything we needed. They made it easy for us all. Alhamdulillah, we are all fine, my family and I are fine”, said the Jewish old man.
