Despite War, Yemeni Artists Hold Art Exhibition

Published July 27th, 2022 - 09:54 GMT

Yemeni artists participated in an art exhibition held in the Houthi-controlled capital of Sanaa. Despite the ongoing, brutal war that killed thousands and displaced millions, creativity is still taking a part in Yemenis' lives.

During the art exhibition in Sanaa, Yemeni kids were seen participating in the event. Houthi-backed militants holding guns were also seen taking a tour inside the Sanaa art exhibition.

Furthermore, portraits depicting slain Iraqi commander Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, slain Iranian commander Qasem Soleimani, and late Hamas spiritual leader Sheikh Ahmed Yassin were also seen in the art exhibition.
