Yemenis have once again held a protest rally in the capital Sana’a to condemn what they see as U-S military intervention in their country. They're calling on the government to do more to stop such violations.Outraged over the US intervention In Yemen, thousands of Yemenis have taken to the streets of the capital Sana'a on Monday. Protesters condemned what they call the latest US-led military operation in the southern Yemen. They say that homes in the south province of Lahj were raided by US army men and Yemeni soldiers. According to protesters, these aggressions have crossed all boundaries and have violated the nation's sovereignty and independence. They also say Yemenis cannot tolerate that any longer. Protesters also expressed condemnation at the Yemeni government and the country's political leaders including the President. They chanted slogans such as "The people want the fall of the regime"-- a regime which they accuse of caving down to foreign policy in the country. More demonstrations are planned this week from Sana'a's Liberation Square which is currently under the control of the Houthi Movement, who have redeployed in mass numbers to push forward the demands of the Yemeni revolution. As the protesters have expressed, they are not at all against the American people but rather, against the American foreign policy in Yemen which they say has been causing a lot of problem to Yemenis across the country.
