SANA'A, Jan 4 ) Doctors in both government and private hospitals in Sana'a have been on a partial strike for three days since Saturday in protest against the attack on Dr. Derhem Al-Qadasi and demand the arrest of the attackers.

Since the medical practitioners started the strike they have gradually increased the number of non operating hours until they assume a full strike in protest and in solidarity with Al-Qadasi.

The full strike is expected to start on Tuesday unless the government captures the aggressors. “Today I met with the Prime Minister and the Head of Al-Shura Council and they promised to take action and bring the attackers to justice
