Yemeni activists reacted with a picture depicting a Yemeni citizen after his death and next to him a number of dogs that he was feeding at a market in the Yemeni province of Ibb, thinking that it shows the highest degree of loyalty.
The stray dogs did not leave the man who had spent his life in his care at his death, refusing to allow anybody to approach his corpse.
Citizen Ismail Hadi used to feed these dogs regularly, as passers-by noted that the dogs he had reared for years approached him and attached to his body while they were in a condition of tremendous sadness.
The picture shows dogs wrapping around him in a moment that illustrates the degree of loyalty she exhibited to people who cared for her for years.
And a number of Yemenis expressed their deep sadness since they saw a picture of the Yemeni Ismail Muhammad Hadi, following his death and witnessing the dogs that sought to protect him as others gathered around him.
The Yemeni journalist, Abd al-Salam al-Shuraihi, noted, “Deep sadness on the faces of the dogs for those who were comrades with them and with them. Those who were feeding them perished. Here is not the complete story. There is food on the street that they will live on. The story is about loyalty and not ungratefulness.”
The Yemeni Abdul Karim Salam observed, “Goodness is inherent to a normal person, even if he lives miserably and vagrant, as is the case of Ismail Muhammad Hadi.”
He added, “Despite his homelessness, misery, and possibly increased suffering as a result of the war, he was known in the Al-Dalil market in Ibb governorate as the person who used to feed the dogs, and when he breathed his breath, the dogs responded to him with loyalty, so they continued next to his corpse, stroking his humanity and perhaps giving him a farewell look.”
He added that no matter how a person is “alone and homeless in the street, and no matter how wretched a person is, he may make others around him happy and leave a beautiful impact after his death.”
