Yemenis rally in Sana’a to protest S Arabia’s ongoing attacks


Thousands of protesters took to the streets of the capital on Friday, waving flags and chanting slogans against Saudi Arabia and the kingdom’s mercenaries and al-Qaeda militants wreaking havoc across the country.

The protesters also chanted anti-US and anti-Israel slogans and called for the downfall of the Saudi monarchy.

Riyadh’s jet fighters bombed al-Mahrah region in Omran Province three times on Friday.

Saudi aircraft also struck Sarvah and Mojzar areas in Ma’rib Province.

Reprisal attacks

In retaliation for the Saudi acts of aggression, Yemeni forces backed by popular committees killed dozens of Saudi mercenaries in Midi desert in Saudi Arabia’s Jizan Province. Yemeni forces also destroyed several Saudi military vehicles in the operations.

Yemen has been under military attacks by Saudi Arabia since late March last year. The Saudi military strikes were launched in a failed effort to undermine the popular Houthi Ansarullah movement and bring the former fugitive president back to power.

More than 8,300 people, among them 2,236 children, have been killed and 16,015 others injured since the start of the attacks. The strikes have also taken a heavy toll on the impoverished country’s facilities and infrastructure, destroying many hospitals, schools, and factories.
