Famished Yemen faces daily Saudi-led coalition bombardment: March 11th Report


Written By: Malak Ali

The impoverished country of Yemen has been bombed on a daily basis by the Saudi-led coalition since March 26 of 2015. 

Despite the countless accusations of war crimes perpetrated by the Saudi regime and their allies against thousands of innocent Yemeni civilians, the world has chosen to abandon Yemen and leave it solely facing the worst humanitarian catastrophe, a cholera outbreak, a strangling all-out blockade and a ruthless war that has devastated the already-weak infrastructure.

Speaking of Yemen being subjected to Saudi American bombs on a daily basis, here is what happened in Yemen on March 11th:

Starting with the capital Sana’a, the Saudi-led coalition launched on Sunday 13 air raids on Al-Dailami base and three more raids on Sana’a International Airport.

In Hodeidah Coastal Governorate, western Yemen, the coalition fighter jets conducted two drone raids on Hais District, while Hodeidah International Airport was also subjected to an airstrike.

In Amran Governorate, the Saudi-led coalition waged three air raids on Al-Dhara Al-Ahmar mountain based in Harf Sufyan District.

Heading to Hajjah Governorate, at least 11 raids hit the districts of Haradh and Medhi during the past few hours.

In Sa’ada Governorate, northern Yemeni border,  the US-backed coalition waged 3 airstrikes on Baqim District, an airstrike on Tkhia District and an air raid on Azhour District located in Razih Border District.

Moreover, various areas of the border districts of Shada and Razih were attacked by Saudi rocket and artillery assaults.

Going to Marib Governorate, the Saudi-led coalition launched three raids on Serwah District.

In Al-Jawf Governorate, at least 7 raids rocked Qhayl District.

Ending the series of airstrikes with Saudi Asir Governorate, a raid was carried out on Majaza, while another raid hit Tala position in Najran.

The Yemeni-Saudi border (Najran, Asir and Jizan Governorates) happen to hold combats between the Saudi Forces and the Yemeni Army and Ansarullah, whereas the latter is said to be retaliating for war crimes and acts of invasion committed by the Saudi-led coalition and its forces.

A Saudi-led war began against Yemen on March 26 of 2015, in an attempt to reinstall a Saudi-friendly president, Hadi. Hadi was ousted by the Ansarullah revolutionaries, who enjoy wide public support, and that is when they took control over the country’s affairs with an aim of eliminating foreign intervention or influence over Yemen.
