Yemen commemorates its revolution under the hashtag #GuardedYemen.
A few days after The Promise of the Hereafter military parade, the Ministry of Interior Affairs held a massive military parade in the capital Sanaa to commemorate the eighth anniversary of the country's September 21 revolution against the Saudi-backed regime.
High-ranking political and security officials, as well as senior military commanders, attended the ceremony which was held at Al-Sabeen Square, Yemen's main square for national celebrations.
Under the supervision of the leader of the Yemeni Ansar Allah movement, Sayyed Abdul-Malik Al-Houthi, units from various divisions of the Yemeni Army, most notably the Ground Force and the Air Defense, showcased their achievements.
Advanced weapons were put on display during the parade, including locally made armored vehicle “Bas 2”, missiles, armored vehicles, rifles, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), and air defense missile systems.
The military parade was attended by 20,000 security personnel from the Ministry of Interior's security units.
The Minister of Interior, Major General Abdul-Karim Al-Houthi, said in a speech during the military parade that "the security establishment, with all its specialties, is operating intensively at the security level."
"For the past eight years, America and Israel have led aggression against the Yemeni people, their security, and stability," he stressed.
Al-Houthi stressed that the security establishment will exert strained efforts to improve security at all levels.
