Yemen: Locals in Sanaa get ready for Ramadan with hope for truce

Yemen, Sanaa
April 1, 2022 at 15:17 GMT +00:00 · Published

Hundreds of locals visit markets in the capital city of Sanaa to buy food as a part of their preparation for the holy month of Ramadan.

Footage filmed on Friday features shoppers walking between the stalls as Muslims stock up on provisions and prepare for the breaking of the dawn-to-sunset fast.

"We hope that the aggressor countries will promote to the level of the terms of the truce submitted by the head of the Supreme Political Council. From the outset, we were advocates of peace, not of war. They're the ones who assaulted us in our country, we didn't seek war, yet it was imposed on us. We hope this truce to be fulfilled in this holy month, the month of mercy and charity," one of the residents said.

Muslims around the world are preparing to welcome the start of Ramadan, which in 2022 begins on the evening of April 1. Ramadan is devoted to the sending down of the Quran to the prophet Muhammad, who received a revelation from above from the archangel Jabrail.
