Yemeni people protest Saudi war, siege
People have taken to the streets in a port city in southern Yemen to condemn the Saudi aggression as well as a siege that is preventing fuel and food from entering Yemeni cities.
According to Yemen’s al-Masirah TV channel, the protests took place in Hudaydah on Sunday after Saudi Arabia prevented a ship from entering the port to deliver fuel for power generation.
The protesters were carrying banners with messages describing the move as a desperate attempt to subjugate Yemenis.
Participants in the rally called on world nations to break the siege and ensure the delivery of food and medicine to Yemen.
The protesters further urged the UN and other international organizations to pressure Saudi Arabia into letting the ship enter Hudaydah amid urgetnt demand for electricity as the scorching summer approaches.
Saudi Arabia has been staging military attacks against Yemen since last March to shore up the former Yemeni regime and undermine Ansarullah.
More than 9,400 people have been killed and at least 16,000 others injured since the onset of the Saudi aggression.
