Protesters Condemn Ongoing Saudi Attacks on Yemen
Hundreds of thousands of Yemenis staged a protest against the Saudi air raids on their country on Monday.
Yemenis attended a mass rally in the capital Sana’a to express steadfastness in the face of brutal attacks by Saudi Arabia, saying that the aggression will not deter them from pursuing the goals of the revolution.
Chanting “Death to America” and “Death to Israel,” the protesters condemned Saudi Arabia’s collusion with other powers against the defenseless Yemeni people.
A speaker, representing the Yemeni children, addressed to the people about the sufferings of kids during the brutal aggression, saying the international powers have kept silent on Saudi’s criminal attacks against women and children.
The protesters condemned an ongoing conference on Yemen in the Saudi capital Riyadh, saying those attending the meeting are holding dialogue over the corpses and bodies of children and women who have been killed in the country.
They also slammed the attendants of the meeting for calling the fugitive former president Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi as the legitimate president, saying, “A fleeing minority does not represent anything but ugliness.” “We are the legitimacy,” the protester chanted.
Another speaker elaborated on the situation of some Arab countries in the Middle East, including Iraq and Syria, saying powers like Saudi Arabia and allies failed in their plots to destabilize those countries and have now targeted Yemen.
“This is not Iraq or Syria,” the speaker said, warning that the consequences of destroying Yemen for the Saudis would be “huge”.
Saudi Arabia launched its bombing campaign against Yemen on March 26 in an attempt to restore power to fugitive President Mansour Hadi, a staunch ally of Riyadh.
Hadi stepped down in January and refused to reconsider the decision despite calls by Ansarullah revolutionaries of the Houthi movement.
Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi warplanes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
The Monarchy’s attacks have so far claimed the lives of at least 3,812 civilians, mostly women and children, according to FNA’s independent tally.
