Thousands of protesters have staged a mass rally in Yemen’s northwestern province of Saada, in order to commemorate the anniversary of Al-Sarkha, the Ansarullah slogan.
Massive crowds of people marched along streets in the provincial capital city of Saada on Friday, waving Palestinian flags alongside Yemeni ones and chanting slogans in solidarity with the Palestinian cause.
They rejected Washington’s policies and those of its allies in the Middle East region, as they held up pictures of the late leader of the Ansarullah movement, Sayyid Hussein Badreddin al-Houthi. The chants includes “Death to America” and “Death to ‘Israel’”.
“We will continue to shout the slogan of freedom to confront the criminal policies of the United States and ‘Israel’ against the nations of the Muslim world. We call on all Muslims to launch a campaign to boycott American and ‘Israeli’ goods and products,” a statement read.
It added, “It is necessary to confront the enemy’s aggression and to provide financial and manpower assistance to battlefronts in order to force the enemy to stop its aggression against our country.”
“The Yemeni people are ready to be an integral part of the holy al-Quds, as announced by Hezbollah Secretary-General Sayyid Hassan Nasrallah,” the statement concluded.
