Sanaa (IP) – The people of Yemen took to the streets nationwide on Saturday to mark seven years since the start of the war in their country and express their support for resistance against the Saudi-led invasion.

Iran PressMiddle East: Several rallies were held in different Yemeni cities, including Sana’a, Ibb, Al-Baidha, Taiz, Hajjah, Raymah, Amran, Thamar, Al-Mahwit and Sa’adah to mark the National Day of Resilience – the day when the Saudi-led coalition started aggression on Yemen.

Saudi Arabia, with the support of the United States, the UAE, and several other countries, has launched a military invasion of Yemen since March 2015, putting a land, sea and air siege on the impoverished country.

Saudi Arabia's warmongering policies in Yemen have so far killed hundreds of thousands of Yemenis, injured tens of thousands, and displaced millions.

The military aggression has also destroyed more than 85 percent of Yemen's infrastructure, leaving the country severely short of food and medicine.
