The students and teachers of Sumaya, a girls-only school, in the district of Hubeish in the central province of Ibb ave thwarted a rally that armed female Houthi militants wanted to organize in their school this week.
The armed Houthi women started organizing a rally and cueing school girls to repeat after them the rebels' rallying cry and slogans of "Death to America, Death to Israel…etc." The school girls chanted nationalist slogans in reply; "By our souls and blood, we protect you Yemen."
Many girls schools in the Houti-held north of Yemen are breaking the barrier of fear and rising to Houthis' attempts to impose their sectarian identity in place of the national one.
