Thousands gathered at the Bad al Yemen gate in Sanaa on Friday, to protest against an offensive on Hodeidah led by the Saudi-led coalition forces. Those in attendance chanted slogans critical of 'Saudi invasion and occupation', while waving weapons in the air. «The Yemeni people went out to this march to tell the world that the Yemenis are all standing side by side as one in defending our... Еще land, dignity, principles and honour,» said a member of the Houthis movement 'Ansar-Allah'. The port of Hodeidah is the Yemen's main point of entry for food aid. With 8.4 million Yemeni people forced to the brink of starvation according to the UN, the country has been plunged into a severe humanitarian crisis.
