Thousands of Yemeni took to Sanaa streets on Sunday in unprecedented rally, marking the second anniversary of Saudi aggression on its impoverished neighbor.
Participants chanted slogans condemning the brutal aggression which killed and injured thousands of Yemenis in two years, as they voiced support to the Yemeni army and the popular committees, al-Manar correspondent in Sanaa reported.
Yemen has been under an aggression by Saudi-led coalition since March 2015. Ports and airports across the country have been under a blockade imposed by the coalition, which also includes UAE, Kuwait, Qatar and Bahrain.
Addressing crowds during Sunday rally, the Head of Supreme Political Council, Saleh al-Sammad, urged the lift of blockade, stressing that the aggression has nothing to do in Yemen but to commit crimes against Yemeni civilians.
As he noted that the Yemenis are extending the hand of peace, he stressed that this “doesn’t mean that we accept the foreign interference.”
Meanwhile Samamd blamed the international community including the United Nations for doing nothing in order to put an end to crimes committed against Yemenis.
