Saudi forces have on Tuesday shot at protesters in an attempt to disperse a rally in front of al-Ma’asheeq palace, the puppet government headquarters in Aden, southern Yemen.
Eyewitnesses confirmed that the Saudi troops assigned to guard the palace gate fired shots in the air in an attempt to prevent the storming of the palace.
Nevertheless, the head of the Aden Center for Strategic Research and Statistics, Hussein Hanshi, has on Tuesday called for demonstrations to move towards the Saudi-led coalition military camp in the same city.
المكان الصحيح للاحتجاج هو مقر التحالف مقر الحكم والتحكم الحقيقي ..في معاشيق اداوات ليس الا ..انشروا التغريدة في الفيسبوك لانهم حظروا هناك كل حساباتي

Hanshi confirmed in a message on Twitter that the “correct place for the protests is the headquarters of the coalition.”
He pointed out that the coalition military camp is “the real seat of governance and control, considering that those who were present in Ma’asheeq Palace are nothing but tools.”
Al-Ma’asheeq Palace, in which the Hadi puppet government, was stormed earlier on Tuesday by angry protesters who demanded the improvement of basic services and the payment of salaries.
