Thousands of people have gathered on the streets of Sana’a to protest the US’s participation in Saudi Arabia’s relentless war against Yemen.
The Saturday mass protests coincided with a trip by US President Donald Trump to Riyadh, in which he finalized an arms deal with Saudi Arabia worth almost $110 billion.
During the protests, people could be seen holding banners which read. “USA thrives on stealing other nations, killing, crime, and causing destruction.”
“We are here today to say no for American terrorism. No for American terrorism. No for American terrorism. And we would also say, to the people in Riyadh, what did [the] Saudis achieve in two years and a half? Nothing. They did not achieve anything. Just killing, destruction,” said a protester.
Another protester stressed that Saudi Arabia “will suffer a humiliating defeat, with or without US and Israeli support.”
The demonstrators also hailed the ballistic missile attack launched by the Yemeni forces against Riyadh just hours before Trump’s arrival in the Saudi capital.
