Yemenis protest Saudi Arabia’s Saturday carnage – Shafaqna Institute for Middle Eastern Studies

SHAFAQNA – The protesters gathered outside the United Nations’ office and chanted anti-Saudi slogans. They condemned the deadly airstrikes that targeted a funeral gathering in the capital and demanded justice for the victims. Yemeni demonstrators also denounced the United Nations for failing to halt Riyadh’s onslaught. According to Yemeni officials, Saudi warplanes first hit a funeral ceremony of the father of Yemen’s interior minister. Later, a second air raid targeted the same area while medics were trying to evacuate the injured. A number of senior Ansarullah members are said to be among the fatalities. More than 140 Yemenis were killed and over 620 others injured in Saturday’s bloody aerial attack.
