Sudan, which takes part in the Saudi-led coalition, backed by the US, is still on the track of others country which ignores the internationals appeals to stop the worst humantrian crisis in the world in Yemen and also suffer heavy losses by the Yemeni army forces in battlefronts.

Ansaruallah’s Spokesman, Mohammed Abdulsalam, on Saturday, November 10, published on his Twitter account photos showing Sudanese dead soldiers and prisoners captured by the Yemeni army during the battles in Yemen’s western coast.“The Sudanese dead and prisoners in the western coast are victims of exploitation of the Sudanese regime in an unjust and unjustified war,” said Abdulsalam.He confirmed that the Sudanese regime would gain nothing but losses and destruction from its hostile positions towards Yemen.“We affirm our respect for the brotherly Sudanese people and hope that the Sudanese regime will review its position on this absurdity,” he added.

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 60,000 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.

Washington has deployed a commando force on the Arab kingdom’s border with Yemen to help destroy arms belonging to Yemen’s popular Houthi Ansarullah movement. Washington has also provided logistical support and aerial refueling.
