Yemenis to Condemn Saudi Air Raids, Blockade in Mass Protest
TEHRAN (FNA)– The Yemeni people plan to stage a major rally in the capital city of Sana’a on Monday in condemnation of the Saudi aggression against Yemen and its blockade of aid deliveries to the impoverished country.
Yemeni people are slated to amass in front of a stadium in Sana’a today after a request from the country’s Ansarullah Movement.
The protesters will condemn the Saudi regime for resuming its aerial bombardments on Yemen as well as preventing aid deliveries to the Arab country.
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.
According to FNA tallies, the Monarchy’s attacks have so far claimed the lives of at least 3,812 civilians, mostly women and children.
On April 21 and May 12, Saudi Arabia declared end to Yemen airstrikes after weeks of bombings, but airstrikes are still underway.
The five-day truce was proposed by Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir last week. Yemen’s Ansarullah movement has announced its cooperation in any actions that will stop suffering in the country.
