Yemenis Rally to Protest Fresh Saudi Carnage
Local Editor

Hundreds of thousands of Yemenis had taken to the streets of Sanaa to voice their outrage at a recent Saudi air raid, which hit a hotel north of the capital and claimed nearly 50 civilian lives.

On Thursday, thousands of demonstrators gathered from different provinces across the country to the capital city.

The rallies were held a day after Riyadh's warplanes targeted a hotel in the Arhab district of Sanaa Province, leaving dozens of civilians martyred and injured.

According to the figures released on Wednesday night by local Red Crescent Societies, rescuers had pulled 48 identifiable bodies from what is left of the hotel. The death toll is feared to rise as the search is ongoing.

The demonstrators condemned the brutal Saudi aggression against their country. They also slammed Saudi Arabia's blockade of Yemen that has caused severe food and medicine shortages and led to fast-spreading epidemics.

To ensure security during the Monday events, fighters of the Ansarullah movement had set up checkpoints at the main entrances to the city.

The US-backed Saudi-led aggression on Yemen was launched in an attempt to undermine the Ansarullah movement and reinstall Riyadh-friendly, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, who resigned in 2014 and fled to Riyadh before returning to Aden.

Saudi Arabia had not attained any objectives despite spending billions of dollars on the war and enlisting the cooperation of dozens of its vassal states as well as some Western countries.

The Saudi-led war, which has been accompanied by a naval and aerial blockade on Yemen, had so far martyred over 12,000 people in the impoverished state, left 70 percent of the country's 27 million population in desperate need of humanitarian aid, and caused the worst cholera outbreak in the world there.
