99th Anniversary of Tanomah Massacre

SANA'A, Jun. 19 (Saba) -100 Years ago, Saudi Wahhabis Killed 3000 Yemeni Pilgrims in Tanomah Under British Directives.

A century has passed on the horrific Tenomah Massacre committed by al-Saud Army against thousands of Yemeni pilgrims en route to the House of God and the holy sites, Mecca and Medinah, to perform the Hajj which is the fifth and final pillar of Islam.

Yemenis went out a hundred years ago, cheering the almighty Allah and their aim to visit the House of God desiring to perform the pilgrimage at a time the Saudi enemy was preparing for treachery so as to kill the pilgrims they just had reached the land of Najd and Hejaz.

Historical sources reported that three thousand Yemeni pilgrims had gathered from various provinces and held a farewell ceremony in Sanaa city before the pilgrims traveled to the holy places, and the Yemeni people used to perform a farewell and reception party during their departure as well as upon their return, but the Guests of Rahman, the pilgrims, in 1341 AH did not return to their homes at that time.

According to accounts, after the Saudi authorities gave the Yemeni pilgrims the green light to secure the road, while the Yemeni pilgrims entered the areas under the authority of Abdul Aziz al-Saud. A company of Saudi soldiers escorted the Yemeni pilgrims, led by Prince Khalid bin Mohammed, nephew of King Abdulaziz, in Wadi Tanomah in the Asir region, where the brutal crime scene was committed.

The academic researcher, Dr. Hammoud Al-Ahnoumi, considered that the bloody Saudi massacre against Yemeni pilgrims in the Tanomah region was an early alarm for this current US-Saudi aggression.

Coinciding with the 101st anniversary of the Tanomah massacre, in which more than three thousand Yemeni pilgrims were killed, Dr. Al-Ahnoumi said: “what would have happened if the Yemenis had listened well to this bell! Unfortunately, they forget it then they woke up on the night of March 26, 2015, to be living in other daily massacres.”

He added, "In fact, the Saudi aggression against Yemen did not start in 2015, but began 101 years ago, with the killing of more than 3000 pilgrims in the Tanomah massacre, then the aggression against our people continued. Sometimes war escalates aggressively and sometimes by ideological invasion and blatant interference in our affairs. They killed our President Al-Hamdi in the past then they killed President Al-Sammad.”

He continued by saying: "The Saudi Wahhabis killed our pilgrims in Tanomah under British directives, and they are killing our people today under American and Zionist orders." He wondered: "They launched the current aggression against Yemen under the pretext of returning Hadi to the presidency, but with what pretext did they kill 3000 Yemeni pilgrims a hundred years ago?!"

Dr. Al-Ahnoumi stressed that the Yemeni people, the Army and Popular Committees take the retribution of our martyrs in Tanomah.

He pointed out that "our pilgrims in Tanouma were killed twice, once by killing and slaughtering them by Saudi regime, and by burying their cause and neglecting them by the puppet previous authority," noting that the massacre was missed by mercenaries in Yemen for decades.
