Protesters call for security improvements in Taiz

Hundreds of young protesters and activists have staged a protest to demand the government to improve security in the heart of Taiz and drive away Houthi rebels besieging the city in its peripheries.

 

The Helping the State Help the Society, a local civil society organization, organized the rally to demonstrate the public discontent over the crimes and periodical assassinations spoiling the life of the city.

"We demand that security be firmed up," read one of the banners.

"We demand the liberation of the city [from Houthis] to be prosecuted," read another.  The protesters chanted "It is a shame  it is a shame that (the city's) blockade continues."

The rebels invaded Taiz in March 2015 and have since been cutting off humanitarian and medical supplies to the city while killing civilians by bombardment, sniper shootings and landmines.
