Yemeni people have once again held a demonstration in the northern city of Sa'ada to condemn the meddling of the United States in their country’s internal affairs, Press TV reports.


Chanting slogans against the US and Israel, the protesters took to streets of the city after Friday prayers and demanded an end to Washington's intervention in Yemen’s domestic issues.

The demonstrators also called for trial of those behind the killing of anti-government demonstrators during the country’s uprising that began in January 2011, when protesters took to the streets against ousted dictator Ali Abdullah Saleh’s three decades-long rule.

Yemenis have been holding regular rallies across the country against the US since it pushed for a power-sharing deal in Yemen in November 2011 to end Saleh’s autocratic rule.

The deal gave Saleh immunity from prosecution in return for an immediate handover of power. Saleh, who ruled Yemen for 33 years, stepped down in February 2012 after nearly a year of mass street protests against his rule.

Yemenis demand that Saleh be brought to justice for his role in deadly crackdowns during the revolution.

They have vowed to continue protests until there is a complete regime change in Yemen.
