Without anything new to note, the celebration of the eighth anniversary of the fall of Sanaa on the 21st of September 2014  by the Houthi group ended with a military parade in the city's largest square, with speeches by its leaders in the same repeated and routine phrases about what it considers the "September 21 Revolution".

As with the repetition in the speeches of the group’s leaders, the military parade was repeated with the same content and weapons that the group displayed in its recent parades in the past weeks, some of which belong to the coffers of the former army and some of what its militias gained from the fronts of legitimacy that fell due to treason and corruption.

At the height of the euphoria by displaying these weapons, the head of the Houthi authority / Mahdi Al-Mashat opens his speech by saying that “the September 21 revolution puts Yemen for the first time on the path of independence and sovereignty,” to refute his allegations about this path in the same speech, by repeating the demand for “lifting the siege on ports and airports.”  subject to the control of his group as a condition of acceptance of peace.

With this contradiction, al-Houthi reflects the clear fact that the weapons he is showing are nothing but tools of death and destruction directed at Yemenis only, and that they are unable to enable him to open a single outlet to the world, and are even incapable of protecting him from the strikes of the Arab coalition.  And that had it not stopped because of the armistice, he would not have been able to review it from the ground up.

The Houthi group’s celebration of the anniversary of what it calls a “revolution” through a military parade is a clear expression of its project that is limited to death and its tools, and made it an official slogan that expresses it (the cry), in return for its inability to present a real project for life and development that it presents to the population in its areas of control on the anniversary of its alleged revolution.

An inability that prompted her to jump towards imaginary projects, which brought her widespread ridicule among Yemenis on social media.  As a result of the Houthi media’s publication of a meeting in Sana’a to discuss a “subway” project, at a time when Sanaa and Houthi-controlled areas suffer from an almost complete collapse of the infrastructure as a result of the war.

In contrast to these fictitious projects of the Houthis and the catastrophic situation of their areas of control, the liberated areas live in a better situation in terms of services and the economy, with real efforts to establish projects for life and development despite the difficulties and imbalances they suffer from.

In conjunction with the Houthi display of death tools in Sanaa, the governor of Taiz, Nabil Shamsan, was announcing the completion of the Mocha airport project under the auspices of Brigadier General Tariq Muhammad Abdullah Saleh, member of the Presidential Leadership Council, head of the Political Bureau of the National Resistance, and the approval of the Council of Ministers for Mocha Airport as an air port for Taiz Governorate.

The airport, which was equipped within a year and became ready to receive planes through a 3 km runway, according to special sources for NewsYemen, coincides with continuous efforts of the national resistance with the support of the coalition, specifically the UAE, to improve the infrastructure of the city of Mocha, which has witnessed a great urban expansion during the past four years.

Among the remarkable news that circulated yesterday, Wednesday, was the news of the intensive preparations taking place on Socotra Island to open the first fish canning and packaging factory on the island, with a production capacity of 96,000 cans per day, and providing job opportunities for about 150 of the island’s residents, which reflects the acceleration of the construction and development movement on the island.  .
