Armed Houthi Women Vow to Fight U.S., Saudi Arabia, Israel

At a rally in the Al-Jawf province of Yemen, veiled Houthi women brandished weapons and protested what they called the "Zio-Saudi aggression against Yemen," vowing to fight America, Saudi Arabia, and Israel.

 

Following are excerpts from a report on the rally, which aired on the Yemeni Al-Masirah channel on March 28, 2015.

 

 

Houthi women: Our soul and our blood we will give to you, oh Yemen.

 

 

Our soul and our blood we will give to you, oh Yemen.

 

 

Our soul and our blood we will give to you, oh Yemen.

 

 

Reporter: "Our soul and our blood we will give to you, oh Yemen" is the slogan of each and every Yemeni man and woman. Yemeni women are no less aware than their fellow men. In Al-Jawf Province, the message of the women is heard loud and clear. Anybody who even considers invading Yemen should bear in mind the courage of the women, before listing to the men and to the roar of the guns.

 

 

Veiled Yemeni woman, armed with a gun: We, the women of Yemen, say to America, Saudi Arabia, and Israel: By God, you will never enter our country, even if nobody is left in Yemen but women.

 

 

Another veiled Yemeni woman with a gun: We, the descendents of Zeinab, the daughters of Fatima, say: we are not afraid. We submit to none but Allah. Allah Akbar. Death to America…

 

 

Reporter: This rally is conducted by the free women of Al-Jawf Province, in order to protest the Zio-Saudi aggression against Yemen. It embodies the notions of honor and bravery among Yemeni men and women. The Yemenis are not preparing roses for the invaders, but bullets and weapons, which even the women are trained to use.

 

 

Veiled Yemeni woman, armed with a gun: We say to America and to Israel that we are against them. If no men are left, we will fight them ourselves.

 

 

[…]

 

 

Veiled Yemeni woman, armed with a gun: We call upon the women of Yemen to bear arms, in order to confront the invaders and the occupiers.

 

 

Veiled Yemeni woman, armed with a gun: As we rally here, the American and Saudi planes are flying above us.

 

 

Veiled Yemeni woman, armed with a gun: We say to those Yemeni [men] who are not bearing arms: Give us your weapons. If you are afraid of America and Israel, we will fight instead of you.

 

 

[…]

 

 

Veiled Yemeni woman on stage: All the Yemenis – men, women, and children – bear arms and are ready to fight you, and first and foremost, the filthy dogs of the Saud clan.

 

 

Veiled Yemeni girl, with only eyes and hands revealed: We, the children of Yemen, say to Saudi Arabia and its supporters: Our children, our men, and our women are ready to confront you.

 

 

Yemeni women and children shouting and brandishing guns: Down with Saud clan!

 

 

Down with Saud clan!

 

 

Down with Saud clan!

 

 

Down with Saud clan!
