Yemen army advances in Taiz despite the coalition assault




The Yemeni army forces keep responding to the US-Saudi-led coalition’s fatal campaign in Taiz province, while many political and public point of views rose.

Notably, a group of activists held a protest in front of the Saudi Embassy in London on Wednesday, condemning the Saudi’s policy in the region since 2011.
