On Tuesday, a school campus in Yemen’s capital city Sanaa became a podium for female students to fight against the Houthi militia, showed a video going viral on social media.
In the video, the girls can be heard chanting “No Houthi militias after today.”
The incident is an example of the community’s stance against the militias and their forced control by the threat of weaponry.
According to eyewitness accounts, the students organized the mini riot to prevent the administration from transforming the school into a sectarian battle field, and obligating students to recite slogans and participate in militia related events.
The students also joined together in petition against the school’s actions which contradict educational values, said the witnesses.
Meanwhile, the Houthi militia fired at the students who continued to chant seeking to foil their protest, added the witnesses.
