BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:20 A.M.) – Thousands of Yemenis took to the streets of Sanaa on Friday to protest the military actions undertaken by the Saudi-led coalition in their country, including Thursday’s airstrike in Hodeidah which killed more than 26 people.

Protesters can be seen taking part in the massive rally, often armed with guns, as they chant slogans and wave banners and placards.

The Saudi-led war in Yemen started in 2015 as an attempt to crush Houthi rebels in the region and reinstall former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi.

With 8.4 million Yemeni people forced to the brink of starvation according to UN figures, the country has been plunged into a severe humanitarian crisis amid its ongoing conflict.
