Millions Rally in Sanaa: ’Yemenis Extend Hands towards Peace, Not Surrender’

Millions of Yemenis took to Sanaa streets on Saturday in a historical rally to voice support to the Supreme Political Council, which was recently formed to run the country in the face of US-led aggression against the Arab impoverished country.
Millions chanted for Yemen, waving the national flags as they flocked the main square of al-Sabi’in in a bid to back the political body which was formed after the UN-brokered peace talks broke down earlier last month.Sanaa rally
The Head of the Supreme Political Council, Saleh al-Sammad, saluted the crowds stressing that their number was equal to population of four Gulf states which have been taking part in the Saudi-led coalition waging war on Yemen since March 2015.
“It is a shame to conspire against our people who represent the cradle of civilization in this region,” Sammad addressed the Saudi-led coalition states as saying.
“These states must understand the new equation which is based on people,” he stressed noting that the council was formed in a bid to meet  the demands of the Yemeni people.
Meanwhile, Sammad, who is also the head of Ansarullauh revolutionary group’s politburo, said that the Supreme Political Council will form a new government in the coming days, calling on the Parliament to resume its sessions and return to its normal political life.
On the other hand, Sammad called on the members of the national delegation which took part in Muscat peace talks to return home and not to meet UN Yemen envoy Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed because of his “biased stance”.Sanaa rally
“Yemen extend hand of peace… not hand of surrender,” Sammad stressed as he praised the Yemeni army and the popular committees for defending their countries against the Saudi-led aggression.
Yemen has been since March 26, 2015 under brutal aggression by Saudi-led coalition.
Riyadh launched the campaign against Ansarullah revolutionaries (known as Houthis) in a bid to restore power to fugitive ex-president Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi who is a close ally to Saudi Arabia.
Thousands have been martyred and injured in the aggression, with the vast majority of them are civilians.
