The assassination of President “Saleh Al-Sammad” Before he became the president of Yemen, Saleh al-Sammad used to be with the popular committees who most of them have been integrated with the Yemeni Armed Forces.

Instead, most of his time was him traveling in the liberated provinces to check upon the civilians and their needs. At his last travel, President al-Sammad was assassinated in Hodeidah, specifically on the western coast of Hodeidah city. In 2018, Saudi Arabia’s indiscriminate crimes in Yemen reached a “hysterical” stage as it was trying to anything that could be a target, this includes civilians, homes, hospitals, etc… In the same year, drones belonging to the Saudi aggression coalition assassinated the President “Saleh Al-Samad” in Hodeidah Governorate, while he was making some inspection visits to the civilian population and the Yemeni forces stationed on the borders of that coastal province. In that treacherous incident, President Al-Sammad left, but his morals, actions and principals, still remain among the Yemeni people as a man who gave his soul away in defending the Yemeni nation and its dignity.

The assassination of President “Saleh Al-Sammad”

 

Before he became the president of Yemen, Saleh al-Sammad used to be with the popular committees who most of them have been integrated with the Yemeni Armed Forces. President al-Sammad, during his presidency, refused to remain still and keep away from the airstrikes of the aggression. Instead, most of his time was him traveling in the liberated provinces to check upon the civilians and their needs. At his last travel, President al-Sammad was assassinated in Hodeidah, specifically on the western coast of Hodeidah city.

In 2018, Saudi Arabia’s indiscriminate crimes in Yemen reached a “hysterical” stage as it was trying to anything that could be a target, this includes civilians, homes, hospitals, etc… In the same year, drones belonging to the Saudi aggression coalition assassinated the President “Saleh Al-Samad” in Hodeidah Governorate, while he was making some inspection visits to the civilian population and the Yemeni forces stationed on the borders of that coastal province.

In that treacherous incident, President Al-Sammad left, but his morals, actions and principals, still remain among the Yemeni people as a man who gave his soul away in defending the Yemeni nation and its dignity. Additionally, his name was engraved in the hearts of all Yemenis.

It is worth noting that the Yemeni leadership, represented by the leader of the Yemeni revolution, Sayyed “Abdul-Malik Al-Houthi”, the President of the Political Council “Mahdi Al-Mashat” and the Yemeni army along with the popular committees, carried out huge military attacks in retaliation for the assassination of the President Saleh Al-Sammad. The counterattack was harsh, as many news reports revealed, which were achieved by combat drones and ballistic missiles targeting strategic sites inside Saudi and Emirati territories in response to the treacherous assassination.
