Yemenis Mark Revolution Victory in Massive Rallies, Slam Saudi Aggression

Yemenis Mark Revolution Victory in Massive Rallies, Slam Saudi Aggression

Alwaght- Hundreds of thousands of people have marched across the Yemeni capital, Sana’a, to mark the third anniversary of the country’s September 21 Revolution while condemning the ongoing brutal Saudi-led aggression against the country.

The demonstrators in Thursday's mass rally reaffirmed their commitment to the government in Sana’a and the Yemeni forces defending the country against an ongoing Saudi war.

Large crowds from across the war-torn country flocked to Sana’a from early Thursday morning to celebrate the occasion.

In September 2014, the Ansarullah resistance fighters took state matters in their hands in Sana’a amid the absence of an efficient government there.

Before gaining control of the capital, the Ansarullah movement had set a deadline for the political parties to put aside differences and fill the power vacuum, but the deadline was missed without any change in the impoverished country’s political scene.

However, the former Saudi-backed president, Abd Rabuh Mansur Hadi, later stepped down, refusing a call by the Ansarullah movement to reconsider the move.

Hadi then fled to Saudi Arabia, which launched a brutal military campaign against Yemen along with a number of its allies in March 2015 to reinstate Hadi and crush the popular Ansarullah movement.

The leader of Yemen's Ansarullah movement on Wednesday delivered a hard hitting speech in the eve of the third anniversary of the day his movement triumphantly entered capital Sanaa.

Ansarullah Movement Chief Abdel-Malek al-Houthi  

Appearing on Al Masirah TV, Abdel-Malek al-Houthi criticized the Saudi-led coalition for the continued aggression on Yemen.

Al-Houthi accused the US, Saudi Arabia and the UAE of seeking to divide Yemen by working with local groups and the fugitive Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi.

"The Emiratis are the front for the Americans," Houthi said. "And today they are stealing Yemen’s natural gas, despite the suffering of the Yemeni people.

"There are a lot of islands today which have been handed over by the foreign agents and traitors of this country to the Emiratis, and they made bases on them, some of them shared bases with the Americans."

The Saudis have failed to achieve their stated objective and are now stuck in the Yemen quagmire while indiscriminately bombarding the impoverished stated on an almost daily basis.

Independent estimates put the death toll of the Saudi-led aggression on Yemen at over 13,000 mostly civilians including women, children and the elderly.

Meanwhile, Ansarulah fighters have put on display armored Emirati vehicles in Sanaa during the revolution day rallies. Observers believe the expensive armored vehicles are war booty captured from the frontline by Yemeni resistance forces.

Elsewhere, on Thursday the World Health Organization (WHO) reported that 704,454 cases of cholera have been registered in Yemen since April 27.

The report noted that at least 2,103 cholera-related deaths had been recorded in 22 out of Yemen’s 23 provinces.

Saudi-led airstrikes and a blockade on fuel and other supplies have left civilians in many areas across Yemen vulnerable to cholera, and less able to get antibiotics and other life-saving help than those in other parts of the Arab world's poorest nation.
