Out of the blue, the Sabaeen parade stand, a popular place for civilians to congregate, was reduced to rubble earlier this week.

At around 01:40 on Sunday morning, Saudi-led airstrikes pounded the tourist site, leaving many Yemenis in a state of shock over the blackened remains.

Since the 2011 uprising in Yemen, Al-Sabaeen square has been a gathering place of the GPC supporters from across the country. Former President Saleh delivered several political speeches there, the latest of which on August 24 of this year.
