Yemenis Stage Nationwide Rallies to Protest at Saudi-Led War
Thousands of people in Yemen braved the danger of Saudi-led air strikes and poured into streets in various cities to hold protests against the ongoing war on the Arabian Peninsula nation, which has killed hundreds of civilians up to now.
Demonstrators in different cities of Yemen, including Sana’a, Hudaydah, Taiz, and Hajjah, held massive rallies on Friday to voice their outrage over the Saudi-led war on Yemeni soil, the Arabic-language Almasirah TV reported.
The demonstrations were held under the motto of “We are standing against savage Saudi-US aggressions”.
Back in early March, similar demonstrations were held in Sana’a in protest against foreign intervention in the internal affairs of the Arab country.
Demonstrators, in a statement, announced that the September 21 Revolution will continue until the peace, stability, freedom and dignity are realized.
The protesters urged respect for the Yemeni people’s will and their decisions, calling for non-intervention in the internal affairs of the country.
On March 26, Saudi Arabia and some of its Arab allies began to militarily interfere in Yemen’s internal affairs by launching deadly air strikes against the Houthi Ansarullah movement in an attempt to restore power to fugitive Yemeni President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.
The World Health Organization said on Wednesday at least 643 people have been killed, and 2,200 injured in the war on Yemen.
