As Houthi extremists continue to kill civilians in Yemen’s central city of Taiz every now and then, a murder story unfolds breaking hearts in every Yemeni home.
Going viral among social media users today is a story from Taiz where a Houthi sniper on Tuesday night shot dead 70-year-old Ali Sayf in his home.
Sayf was preparing his bed in the yard of his house in Almadina Asakaniya neighborhood in east of the city with his granddaughter Donya besides him when the sniper shot him.
A video on wide circulation shows Donya crying her eyes out near after her grandad was pronounced dead. Donya was screaming: “My grandfather” “I would that the bullets hit me, not my grandfather” and “he was the light of our home.”
The UN-pampered Shia militia have snuffed out the lights of hundreds of thousands of homes in oppositionist Yemen, thanks to years of political pressures to keep them in power and in the capital Sana’a in the name of “peaceful solution.”
Here is a link to the videoclip:
