Sana'a Rejects Washington's Bid for Fresh Marines Deployment

TEHRAN (FNA)- Yemeni President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi has voiced his opposition to the deployment of new US marines in his country, and called for the pullout of the present US troops in Yemen, informed sources said.

The news came while Washington has announced that the presence of the US marines has been extended for another years in Yemen.

President Mansour Hadi has rejected the US request for the dispatch of further marines to Yemen and has even called for the return of the existing US forces in Yemen, the UAE-based newspaper al-Khaleej quoted informed Yemeni government sources as saying.

Last month, thousands of the Yemeni people rallied in different cities across the country to show their anger at Washington's interference in their country's internal affairs, and called for the expulsion of the US ambassador from Sana'a.

The residents of Saa'da city in rallies organized by the Houthi Movement underlined their opposition to the Yemeni regime's agreement with the deployment of the US military forces in Yemen and the massacre of the Yemeni citizens by the US drones.

Also, the protestors in Maa'la city in Aden province trampled on the US flag to protest at Washington's interfering policies against their country.

In Sana'a, a large number of Yemeni citizens gathered in Sittin square and other main squares in their city to blast the Yemeni regime for its disloyalty to its vows and undertakings.

People in Yemen hold almost weekly anti-US rallies across the country after the Friday Prayers to express their anger over Washington's interference in Yemeni affairs and its deadly drone attacks in their country.

The protesters want their government to sever ties with Washington and the expulsion of the US ambassador. They have also called for the expulsion of US Marines from their country.
