Yemen: Taizis launch Middle East’s longest petition to end siege on their city

 

By Nadhem Alaleemi

Thousands of residents of the central Yemeni city of Taiz have launched what is said to be the Middle East’s longest paper petition to their government to lift a six-year-long siege imposed by Houthi militants around their city.

The One Body Campaign, a team of rights activists, launched the petition on Sunday on behalf of 40,000 people who signed it, local media reported.

Neither the Campaign activists nor the local media reported how long the paper is but judging from available pictures it seems more than 50 meters long.

The paper also renewed the local demands on the government to repair Hayjat Al-Abd, a crumbling and dangerously steep winding mountain road that currently serves as the only humanitarian conduit to the city.

The director of the Campaign Ayman al-Madhehaji said the paper petition’s launch  was also prompted by the government’s “negligence to come up with a radical solution to the collapse of Hayjat Al-Abd, the only unblocked road to Taiz.”
