Yemenis gather in mass rallies to celebrate Eid al-Ghadeer

The Yemeni capital Sana’a and other provinces have on Sunday witnessed mass rallies in several main squares to celebrate the annual anniversary of Al-Walaya Day also Eid al-Ghadeer, the day on which the Prophet Mohammed (Peace Be upon Him) selected Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib as his successor.

In the capital Sana’a, thousands of people flocked from all villages and districts of the province, carrying slogans expressing the importance and the greatness of this anniversary and its place in the hearts of Yemenis.

A number of speeches were delivered, which confirmed that the commemoration is “considered a renewal of the covenant, belonging and linking to the approach of the Prophet Mohammed, peace and blessings be upon him, to achieve glory and honour in the life of the nation.”

The slogans denounced the US President’s recent moves and visits, which exacerbate tension in the region, considering Saudi Arabia’s announcement of opening its airspace to Israeli occupation aircraft “a major betrayal of the Islamic nation and the Palestinian cause.”

The people of Sana’a showed that they consider the puppet regimes’ rush to collaborate with Israel, opening embassies and expanding the frameworks and areas of cooperation with the usurping enemy as “a disgrace on the forehead of these regimes.”

They called on the United Nations to assume its responsibilities and get out of the state of complicity towards the continuation of the aggression against Yemen.
