People of Hadhramaut rally against the occupation

Dozens of citizens have organised a protest on Thursday in Hadhramaut province, eastern Yemen, to condemn the Saudi-led coalition occupation and the deterioration of the economy.

During a vigil in front of the provincial office headquarters in Mukalla city, the protesters demanded the re-opening of Al-Rayyan airport, which is controlled by Saudi forces, and the opening of sea waters to fishermen.

The protesters denounced the high cost of living and the deterioration of the local currency, demanding accountability for corrupt officials and establishment of a state of order and law.

The southern provinces have been witnessing a popular movement against the presence of the invaders, as a result of the economic deterioration.
