Air and Artillery Forces of the Yemeni Army Forces on Thursday launched a joint air attack on several sites of the Saudi-led colition, backed by the US, paid fighters in Nehm district of Sana’a province.
A military source told YemenExtra that the joint attack was carried out after careful monitoring at Nehm district, confirming the success of the operation and leaving big casualties amid the coalition in lives and equipment.
Yemeni Air Force has reportedly carried out several air strikes on the coalition gatherings on various fronts in response to the continued campaign and siege imposed on the Yemeni People since March 2015.
In March 2015, the US -backed –Saudi-led coalition started a war against Yemen with the declared aim of crushing the Houthi Ansarullah movement, who had taken over from the staunch Riyadh ally and fugitive former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, while also seeking to secure the Saudi border with its southern neighbor. Three years and over 600,000 dead and injured Yemeni people and prevented the patients from travelling abroad for treatment and blocked the entry of medicine into the war-torn country, the war has yielded little to that effect.
Despite the coalition claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi bombers are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
More than 2,200 others have died of cholera, and the crisis has triggered what the United Nations has described as the world’s worst humanitarian disaster.
