As the Houthis celebrate as a revolution. Yemeni activists commemorate " catastrophe of 21 September"

The Houthi rebel group announced Saturday an official holiday in the areas under its control on the anniversary of its armed invasion of the capital Sana'a.

Since 2015, the Houthi militias have approved an official holiday on the occasion of what they call a revolution and force citizens in their areas to celebrate it, but their area of control is constantly being eroded for the benefit of government forces supported by the Saudi-led Arab coalition.

Bloggers, media and activists on Thursday evening launched a campaign on social media sites to revive what they call the "catastrophe of September 21", the day when the Houthi militias were able to support forces loyal to former President Ali Abdallah Saleh from the invasion and control of the capital Sana'a in 2014 After the Minister of Defense in the authority of President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi announced the commitment of the army to stand at one distance from the "conflicting parties".

Under the label #نكبه_اليمن_٢١سبتمبر, activists and singers on social media posted thousands of tweets in which they regained memories of the difficult days they experienced when the Houthis stormed the capital of Sana'a, and reviewed those tweets, AL-Masdar online monitored some of them, the collision and the treason that Yemen witnessed them in those days and followed until the Houthis completed the coup and reached the shores of Aden in mid-March 2015.

In a tweet on his social networking site Twitter, Yemeni Information Minister Muammar al-Eryyani said: "Four black years have passed on Yemenis since the coup of the Iranian Houthi militia the capital Sana'a and its coup d'état on constitutional legality and the national Consensus represented by the outcomes of  the national  Dialogue after trapping the entrances to the capital and storming state institutions under the claims of dropping the dose and changing the government  ".

The writer and journalist Arif Abu Hatem tweeted this occasion on his Twitter page, speaking about the catastrophe of September 21, saying, "The only good for Abdul Malik al- Houthi is that he threw his filthy chamber into the pond of Yemen, and he got dirty a thousand years old, what we thought all those faces especially the activist is hiding behind the  Republic slogans and hide its despicable face  and what we thought was that those who learned and profited from the republican system returned to work against it. "

Abu Hatem noted that the cumulative consciousness created by the September 62 revolution in the minds of two whole generations will not be erased by the movement of obscurantism with Shiite connotations of sectarian overtones and terrorism and he added   in the expression "the darkness will disappear and the Republic, freedom and the civil State shall remain."

Saudi Arabia's top writer Jamal Khashoggi said Yemen's catastrophe on Sept. 21  The day the Houthi entered Sanaa in perfidy and tamer,  "Their aim was to undermine the Republic and to force the forces of change in Yemen, which will be a new and free pluralistic youth revolution." "Al-Houthi is not an age-old project that will not be able to govern Yemen without force and oppression of others, which means constant strife," he said on his Twitter page.

Supporters of former president Saleh (al-Houthi's accomplice in the coup and human beings on his assassination in December last year) took part in the commemoration, some of whom celebrated with confessions in support of the coup and apologies for this role as well as the known journalist Mohammed al-Rahmi on his page, while others continued to Defend the same position and consider it an attempt by Saleh and his party than to contain the group and preserve the state.

For his part, the Ambassador of Yemen in Washington Ahmed Awad bin Mubarak said that “The Houthi is an  epidemic has swept Yemen and decimated ploughing and offspring and wreaked havoc on the land, despite sacrifices and pains, but it will disappear and will recover Yemen."

Journalist and activist Mohammed Saeed al-Sharaabi  write on his Twitter page saying, "In the meantime, four years ago, I was watching the launch of fireworks from Mathbah as camouflage round by the last forces defending the headquarters of the first armored division," al-Sharabi added, "and all the mountain sites belonging to the guard The Republican supports Houthi militias, which I have seen myself and not quoting anyone. "

"The day when the value of the Yemeni man became cheaper than that of the Houthi bullet," he said, "The Houthis summoned us all dreamers to absorb our blood, and enabled them to tear us apart and sow hatred in every house."

Commenting on the anniversary, writer and journalist Khaled Alwani said, "Houthi militias lifted the slogan of dropping the dose in 2014 and began to plunder the people's capabilities until they referred Yemen to the homeland of famine, which was debunked by days and the history of the crime proved to await the punishment due in accordance with the principle of justice."

The Houthis ' invasion of the capital Sana'a was the end of a phase of war waged by militias since they left the city of Sa'dah and the beginning of a new phase that enabled them to take over large areas of Yemen, but that control did not last much, after the Houthis arrived in the city of Aden and threatened the waterways The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has announced a coalition led by a number of Arab countries and launched a military intervention in Yemen that began on the 26th of March, and the war is still raging today, in which thousands of Yemenis have been killed in the past years and thousands of homes and public facilities have been destroyed. In particular, Yemen is the world's worst humanitarian crisis, according to reports from United Nations organizations.
