Yemenis to Stage Massive Anti-US Protest Saturday
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The Yemeni people from all walks of life plan to participate in a demonstration in the capital, Sana'a, on Saturday to condemn Washington for its supports for the Saudi war and “the American terrorism” against the Arabian Peninsula country.
In a statement on Thursday, the Yemeni committee responsible for "organizing revolutionary events" called on all the people of the Arab country to take part in the rally dubbed “No to American Terrorism against Yemen” due to be held in Sana’a on Saturday afternoon local time.
The statement also underlined the importance of the upcoming protest rally and said it will make the voice of the Yemeni nation about the Saudi crimes and terrorist acts by the aggressors heard, the Arabic-language al-Masirah television reported.
Since March 25, 2015, Saudi Arabia and some of its Arab allies have been carrying out airstrikes against the Houthi Ansarullah movement in an attempt to restore power to fugitive former President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.
Yemen’s Legal Center of Rights and Development announced recently that the Saudi campaign has claimed the lives of over 12,040 Yemenis and left more than 20,000 others wounded.
The center added that there were a total of 2,568 children and 1,870 women among the fatalities, noting that the atrocious onslaught had also destroyed 757 schools and institutes, 111 university facilities, 271 factories besides 1,520 bridges and roads.
