Funeral services held for Saudi citizen who joined Yemeni revolutionary forces

A funeral was held in the capital Sana’a for Abdulaziz Yousef Saed Mohamed Omar, a Saudi citizen who was martyred while fighting alongside the Yemeni army and Popular Committees against the Saudi-led coalition forces.

Top officials performed a funeral prayer for the Saudi martyr in Sha’ab Mosque.

Martyr Abdulaziz Yousef Saed Mohamed Omar, a Saudi-born inhabitant of Mecca, was martyred while fighting alongside Yemen revolutionary forces against the Saudi-led invaders.

Abdulaziz Omar was originally a soldier in the Saudi army, who was captured in battle by Yemeni forces. After his release from captivity, he refused to return to Saudi Arabia, opting instead to join the ranks of the National Salvation Government and fight against the Wahhabi monarchy ruling over his fatherland.
