Saudi-led coalition resposible for attacking its territories !
The Saudi-led military campaign, backed by the US, paved the way for the outbreak of many kinds of suffering, most notably killing innocents, in Yemen but also faced repeated military backlashes in Yemen and attacks inside its own territories.
In Najran, Yemeni army forces ,Friday, launched an attack on the coalition’s sites, gaining control of a number of Saudi sites, killing and injuring a number of them and destroying 2 military trucks and personnel carrier.
Local sources, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Saudi warplanes bombarded residential buildings in Talan village of Kushar district in Yemen’s northwestern province of Hajjah on Sunday afternoon, leaving 20 women and a child dead, Arabic-language al-Masirah television network reported.
In Asir, Yemeni army forces, Friday, encountered 2 creeps of the coalition’s paid fightersin Al-Raboa’ah, killing and injuring a number of them and burning a Saudi armored vehicles in Alab Crossing.
UNICEF released a statement on Saturday in which Executive Director Henrietta Fore said, “In Yemen, children can no longer safely do the things that all children love to do, like go to school or spend time with their friends outside. The war can reach them wherever they are, even in their own homes.”
“Each day, eight children are killed or injured across 31 active conflict zones in the country,” she said, adding that “talks and conferences have so far done little to change the reality for children on the ground.”
The Yemeni army forces on Friday carried out an attack on sites of the coalition’s paid fighters in Bayda province,targeting the paid fighters in Qanih area, killing and wounding a number of the paid fighters.
“Children did not start the war in Yemen, but they are paying the highest price. Some 360,000 children are suffering from severe acute malnutrition, fighting for their lives every day. And one credible report put the number of children under 5 who have died of starvation at more than 80,000,” United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres told a donor conference in the Swiss city of Geneva on Tuesday.
He went on to say that continued Yemen conflict has significantly increased the number of internally displaced people to 3.3 million, and the figure marks a sharp uptick from 2.2 million recorded last year.
Missile units of the Yemeni army forces, Friday, fired Katyusha rockets at groups of the paid fighters backed by the coalition in Jawf province.The rockets hit the paid fighters in al-Hazm area, killing and wounding several of the paid fighters.
The leader of Yemen’s Houthi Ansarullah movement says, “The enemy has focused its primary attention on women as they hold an important position both in the family and the society. Islam brought independence to us, and freed us from the grips of reliance and dependence.”
“An estimated 80 percent of the population -24 million – require some form of humanitarian or protection assistance, including 14.3 million who are in acute need,” The United Nations warned.
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.
However, Saudi Arabia relies heavily on the US in its brutal war on Yemen. 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.
