Tens of thousands march in Yemen against Saudi-led airstrikes


SHAFAQNA IN COLLABORATION WITH OSS-ME – Massive crowds have hit the streets of Yemen’s capital, Sanaa in protest of the Saudi-led bombing campaign against the country’s Shia militias.

The rally marks the second anniversary since the start of the intervention and bombing campaign by a coalition of nine African and Middle Eastern countries against the Houthi rebels.

According to RT’s Ruptly news agency, hundreds of thousands of people took part in the demonstration. However, there is no official confirmation of the number.

“Two years of wanton violence and bloodshed, thousands of deaths and millions of people desperate for their basic rights to food, water, health and security – enough is enough,” UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein said on Friday.
