Deaths as Houthis open fire at Yemen protest

وَمَنْ يَقْتُلْ مُؤْمِنًا مُتَعَمِّدًا فَجَزَاؤُهُ جَهَنَّمُ خَالِدًا فِيهَا وَغَضِبَ اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَلَعَنَهُ وَأَعَدَّ لَهُ عَذَابًا عَظِيمًا

“As for anyone who kills a believer deliberately, his repayment is Hell, remaining in it for ever. Allah is angry with him and has cursed him, and has prepared for him a terrible punishment.”

(An-Nisaa, 4:93)

Houthi rebels opened fire on Tuesday at demonstrators in the Yemeni city of Taez, killing eight protesters and wounding 120 others, Al Arabiya News Channel reported.

The rebels attacked the demonstrators as they gathered for the third consecutive day to protest the militia’s arrival in Taez, after the Houthis sent thousands of troops south from the capital Sanaa, which they control.
