Following one of the largest retaliatory attacks by the Yemeni army against Aramco facilities across Saudi Arabia, thousands of Yemenis filled the streets of Yemen's capital Sana'a and other major cities to mark the national day of resistance.

The protesters expressed their support for the army’s recent operations, saying the Saudis only understand the language of force and it is a legitimate right as it is self-defense against Riyadh's war and siege.

On Friday, the Yemeni army launched fresh attacks against several targets in Saudi Arabia. The attacks caused a heavy blow to Aramco's facilities in Jeddah, Jizan, and Najran as well as Ras Tanura and Rabegh refineries. The Yemeni army said it has also targeted vital sites in Riyadh with ballistic missiles.

People here say the eighth year of the war will be different as the Yemeni army has already proven that it is capable of hitting Saudi targets including its oil facilities. The Yemenis believe that Riyadh will eventually have to consider a political solution, at least to protect its oil giant Aramco in the face of Yemeni attacks.
