Yemenis in Taiz held a protest near the closed eastern crossing, to demand an end to the Houthi siege imposed on the city for nearly 7 years.

The protesters called on the United Nations and the Security Council to open the crossings and roads leading to the city.

They also used social media to call for the opening of Taiz crossings, after the opening of Sanaa International Airport as part of the truce that entered into force last April.

Soundbite (Abdullah Al-Zubaidi – Yemeni man):

“I call on the United Nations, the Security Council, and the President of Yemen to lift the siege in Taiz. We have been under siege for 8 years. I can’t visit my children who live in another city.”

Soundbite (Abdullah Al Radfani – Yemeni man):

“We demand the opening of crossings. It is an unjust siege that has been imposed on us for 8 years. People are suffering from this siege, which has no reason. We call on the whole world that cares about human rights.”
