“O Allah, grant victory, dignity and empowerment to our brothers Mujahideen (Jihadists) in Yemen,” the imam intoned in Arabic. “In Sham (Syria), and Iraq, and everywhere. O Lords of the Worlds grant them victory over the godless Rafidah (Shia Muslims).” “Grant them victory over the treacherous Jews, and over the spiteful Christians, and over the untrusted hypocrites,” the imam sang. “O Allah, grant them victory, help and strength.”
Masjid al-Ḥaram, also known as the Great Mosque of Mecca, or Sacred Mosque, surrounds the Kabba, the holiest place in Islam in Mecca city. Muslims from all over the world try to visit this place for pilgrimage, and use it as the center for global praying. At the same time, on Tuesday, Saudi Foreign Minister Adel Al-Jubeir spoke on the CNN TV-channel, talking about human rights, while Saudi fighter jets continue to carry out airstrikes on hospitals and civilians in Yemen.
