Thousands of Houthi supporters gathered in the Yemeni capital on Thursday to celebrate the third anniversary of the takeover of Sanaa from government forces. Holding banners with slogans such as "the 21 September Revolution is 100% Yemeni," protesters chanted and waved national flags. Yemen continues to be in the middle of a long civil war as the Saudi-led coalition fights on behalf of the internationally recognized government against the Iranian-backed Houthi rebels led by Yemeni rebel leader Abdel-Malek al-Houthi.
