An overwhelming majority of respondents to a Press TV poll from across the globe says Saudi Arabia’s military aggression against Yemen is totally similar to the Israeli aggression against the Gaza Strip.

Of 29,192 people participating in the online poll, which was conducted from May 11 to June 20, 2015, 22,041 believed that the ongoing Saudi military campaign in Yemen is very similar to the Israeli wars against Gaza.

The opinion poll showed 3,198 people maintained that the wars in Yemen and Gaza are relatively similar to each other while 3,953 respondents said they are barely similar.

The respondents included, among others, 7,264 people from the United States, 2,520 from the United Kingdom, 2,044 from Canada, 639 from Australia and 423 from the Netherlands.

The Saudi regime has been bombarding areas across Yemen since March 26 without the mandate of the United Nations in a bid to undermine the Houthi Ansarullah movement and to restore to power fugitive former president, Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, who is a staunch ally of the Al Saud regime.

Spokesman for UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Rupert Colville, said on June 16 that at least 1,410 Yemeni civilians, including 210 women, have been killed and 3,423 have sustained injuries since Saudi Arabia started its military campaign in Yemen.

Israel has blockaded the Gaza Strip for over seven years, causing a humanitarian crisis in the Palestinian enclave. The Israeli regime has since launched three wars on Gaza.

Tel Aviv started its latest war on the Gaza Strip in early July 2014. The offensive ended on August 26, 2014, with a truce that took effect after indirect negotiations in the Egyptian capital, Cairo.

Nearly 2,200 Palestinians, including 577 children, were killed in Israel’s 50-day onslaught. Over 11,100 others – including 3,374 children, 2,088 women and 410 elderly people – were also injured.
