SANA’A, YEMEN (9:00 P.M.) – Massive anti-American manifestation gathered thousands of people in Yemeni capital, Sana’a, which was held ahead of planned visit of U.S. President Donald J. Trump to Riyadh.

The demonstration began on Friday afternoon, with attendance of several thousand supporters of Ansar Allah movement (known as Houthis) as well as other citizens. The rally has been held amid financial and food crisis plaguing the poorest country of the Middle East.

Main agenda of the demonstration was expressed by the head of Supreme Revolutionary Committee (SRC) Mohammad Ali Al Houthi who said:

“Today we launch the campaign against American terrorist aggression in Yemen and our biggest rally will take place on the same day when Trump will be in Riyadh.”

Political acitivits say it has been the shortest Houthi speech so far. Al Houthi concluded it by calling all Yemenis to mobilize for “the biggest event”.

Local citizens told Al-Masdar News that they heard Houthis addressing people in almost all Sana’a mosques during Friday sermons, calling them to attend the manifestation that took place at Al Nassr Street in Sawan district located under Nuqm Mountain. On May 11, 2015, this place was targeted with tactical neutron bomb (some sources claim it was just a thermobaric bomb) dropped by US-backed Saudi Royal Air Force.

Last night pro-Houthi activists launched a hashtag #IsraelNukesYemen stressing that “it was neither the US, nor Saudi Arabia, but Israel that dropped a neutron bomb on Nuqm Mountain”.

The demonstration took place amid rising tensions across Yemen as most public servants has been unpaid since last October due to exiled president Hadi repositioning the Yemeni Central Bank from Sana’a to Aden.

Sana’a-based government blames Saudi-led coalition for the delay of salaries, since Russia has printed 200 billion YR (Yemeni rial) for the Central Bank in Aden, but Aden-based government refuses to pay salaries imposing economic and financial siege on Houthi-controlled territories.

In a 3D universe, anything can happen, but the funnier would be the LGBT flag : the best insult to puritanism 😆

It was a c**p bomb not a neutron one. A bomb full of Saudi poopooo. Let’s report truth or just join the rumor and propaganda team.
