SANA’A (Dispatches) –
Thousands of Yemeni people have poured into the streets in the capital Sana’a and other cities to voice their outrage over the continued acts of aggression and war crimes committed by the Saudi-led coalition.
The demonstrations were held on Saturday in honor of the late founder of the Ansarullah movement Hussein al-Houthi.
Waving Yemen’s flag, the protesters chanted slogans against the aggressors and their key ally, the United States.
They expressed support for the Yemeni army troops and fighters from the Popular Committees, and called for resistance against the Saudi-led coalition of aggression during the massive rally in the capital staged under the motto “Cry in the Face of Aggressors.”
The Yemeni protesters made it clear to their enemies that their country will remain independent and free. Demonstrators also slammed dishonest calls for peace made by certain Arab governments that have normalized relations with the Zionist regime.
High-ranking Yemeni officials and politicians participated in the large demonstration in Sana’a.
Elsewhere in Yemen’s central province of al-Bayda, large crowds of people took part in massive protests in the Rada’a and Sawadiyah districts to condemn the Saudi war.
The residents of the Jabal al-Sharq, Wusab al-Ali, and Wusab al-Safil districts in the southeastern province of Dhamar also staged mass rallies to condemn the crimes of the Saudi-led military alliance and the brutal blockade of Yemen.
Saudi Arabia launched the devastating war on Yemen in March 2015 in collaboration with its Arab allies and with arms and logistics support from the U.S. and other Western states.
The objective was to reinstall the Riyadh-friendly regime of Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi and crush the Ansarullah resistance movement, which has been running state affairs in the absence of a functional government in Yemen.
While the Saudi-led coalition has failed to meet any of its objectives, the war has killed hundreds of thousands of Yemenis and spawned the world’s worst humanitarian crisis.
Yemeni protesters slammed international silence on the Saudi atrocities and the economic war.
In another development, the Saudi-led coalition forces impounded an oil tanker bound for Yemen in flagrant breach of a UN-brokered ceasefire.
The Force Power tanker, which was due to dock at Yemen’s western port of Hudaydah, was carrying 22,915 tons of mazut and 7,296 tons of diesel fuel, Essam al-Mutawakil, a spokesman for the Yemeni National Oil Company, said.
Mutawakil added that the ship was confiscated despite being inspected and cleared for the port by the United Nations staff.
The coalition seized the Yemen-bound fuel ships despite the UN-brokered truce between Yemen’s warring parties that was extended for 2 months on Thursday.
