FARS News Service
TEHRAN (FNA)- Thousands of the Yemeni people rallied in different cities of the country to show their anger at Washington’s interference in their country’s internal affairs, and called for the expulsion of the US ambassador from Sana’a.
The residents of Saa’da city in rallies organized by the Houthi Movement underlined their opposition to the Yemeni regime’s agreement with the deployment of the US military forces in Yemen and the massacre of the Yemeni citizens by the US drones. Also, the protestors in Maa’la city in Aden province trampled on the US flag after the Friday prayers ceremonies to protest at Washington’s interfering policies against their country.
In Sana’a, a large number of Yemeni citizens gathered in Sittin square and other main squares in their city to blast the Yemeni regime for its disloyalty to its vows and undertakings. People in Yemen hold almost weekly anti-US rallies across the country after the Friday Prayers to express their anger over Washington’s interference in Yemeni affairs and its deadly drone attacks in their country.
Thousands of Yemenis Rally to Protest US ‘Meddling’
(December 7, 2012) — Thousands of Yemenis have rallied in the northern Sa’ada governorate to protest against US interference in their country’s internal affairs. Yemenis hold almost weekly anti-US rallies in the northern governorate following Friday Prayers to express their anger over Washington’s interference in Yemeni affairs and its deadly drone attacks in their country.
The protestors want their government to sever ties with Washington, saying they would only be free after the US ambassador is expelled. They have also called for the expulsion of US Marines from their country.
Washington uses its assassination drones in Yemen, Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Somalia, claiming that they target the terrorists. The attacks, however, mostly lead to massive civilian casualties.
The United Nations has censured the US drone attacks as targeted killings, stressing that they flout international law. Reports, however, say that the CIA is seeking to expand its covert drone attacks in Yemen, despite the fact that the airstrikes mostly result in civilian casualties.
Houthi Leader Condemns US Drone Attack
(October 30, 2012) — The leader of Yemen’s Houthi group has condemned a recent US assassination drone attack in the northern province of Sa’ada, which left three people dead. Abdolmalek al-Houthi described the attack as a ring in the chain of constant US air intrusions against Yemen.
At least three people were killed after a US drone fired rockets at three separate targets in Wadi al-Abu Jabara, some 250 kilometers north of the Yemeni capital, on Sunday. Tribal sources say the victims were civilians. Meanwhile, Ansarallah movement has accused the Sana’a government of cooperating with the US and covering up its aggressions in Yemen.
Thousands of Yemenis took to the streets in Sa’ada on Monday to protest against the US drone attack and urged the government to cut ties with Washington. “The US crime in Wadi al-Abu Jabara is a prelude to new US strikes in new areas, encouraged by the silence and complicity of the so-called reconciliation government,” a Houthi leader said to the crowd.
According to a recent report by Yemen’s National Organization for Defending Rights and Freedoms, over 300 people have been killed in US drone attacks carried out in the southern regions of the country so far in 2012. Reports, however, say that the CIA is seeking to expand its covert drone attacks in Yemen, despite the fact that the airstrikes mostly result in civilian casualties.
Three Killed in US Assassination Drone Attacks
(October 28, 2012) — At least three people have been killed in US assassination drone attacks in the northern Yemeni province of Sa’ada as Washington continues its illegal air strikes using unmanned planes in the country.
According to tribal sources, the victims were killed after a US drone hit three separate targets in Wadi al-Abu Jabara, some 250 kilometers north of the Yemeni capital, on Sunday, AFP reported. The attack comes four days after rockets fired from a US drone killed at least seven people near the southern Yemeni city of Jaar in Abyan province.
People of Sa’ada have released several statements denouncing the presence of unmanned US drones flying over their country in recent weeks.
