UAE presence in Yemen forces Yemenis to suffer from this!
The United Arab Emirates (UAE), main part of the coalition, has reportedly done illegal practices against Yemenis in the Saudi-led coalition waging war , backed by the US, on Yemen over years.
Members of Yemen’s Saudi-backed former government said Wednesday that around 100 separatists had disembarked in civilian clothes on Monday from a UAE naval vessel on Socotra, Reuters reported.
According to the sources, Abu Dhabi had trained a batch of 300 troops bound for Socotra in Yemen’s southern embattled city of Aden, where the administration of ex-president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi is based.
The United Arab Emirates (UAE) forces on Wednesday cut off electricity from most of villages in Dhalea province, local sources reported to YemenExtra.
According to the sources, the leadership of the so-called Security Belt force has cut off electricity from several villages, including the village of Assaf in Marais district, as collective punishment for the citizens’ refusal to participate in the fighting alongside the forces against the Yemeni army forces.
The same sources indicated that “the tribes nearby the Shu’aib district have mobilized to cut off the roads leading to the district in protest and response to the reckless actions of the UAE-backed militias.”
The UAE government admitted that it has recruited scores of women of Socotra Island and trained them in its camps in Abu Dhabi as part of its efforts to occupy the Yemeni island.
According to Emirati media, 40 women from Qatar arrived at Socotra Airport, in the archipelago’s capital city of Hadibu, after they participated in a training program, claiming it was aimed at keeping the peace.
“The course lasted for three months,” the Emirati newspaper said.
The trainees received a number of security courses as part of the UAE’s ongoing efforts to recruit women as loyal security forces, far from the official security apparatus.
President Emmanuel Macron faced mounting pressure from critics in France over the deliveries, particularly after a recent leaked intelligence report showed that French weapons were being widely used in the war on Yemen.
“Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates are allies of France and allies in the fight against terrorism. We accept responsibility for that,” Macron told reporters when asked about the arms sales.
Yemen’s southern activists, for their part, published a footage showing UAE ’s Red Crescent distributed expired humanitarian aid in Yemen’s southern city of Aden, the video showed that aid including flour filled with insects in an insult to the Yemeni people,condemning the tragic situation caused and exploited by the UAE and Saudi Arabia against citizens in south of Yemen.
The leader of the Yemeni Revolution, Sayyed Abdul-Malik Badreddin al-Houthi confirmed that there was no threat from Yemen to either Saudi Arabia or the United Arab Emirates before the Saudi-UAE invasion in 2015.
“There was no prior threat to the Saudi or the Emirati from Yemen, and there is no justification for the attack,” Sayyed al-Houthi explained in an interview with al-Masirah TV on Monday night.
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.
