US backed-Saudi-led coalition airstrikes keep hitting civilian targets in Sa’ada




The US backed -Saudi-led coalition on Thursday launched intensive bombardments on several border districts in Yemen’s Northern Province of Saada, a military official told YemenExtra.

The coalition rockets and artillery shells hit several residential areas in Shada border district, leaving damages to the citizens’ properties, the official added.

The coalition army bombarded also hit several popular areas in the same province, targeting popular areas and villages in border Monabih, Shada and Razih districts.

The official spokesman of Ansarullah, Mohamed Abdulsalam, said Wednesday in an interview on Almasirah TV that the upcoming consultations won’t be leading to serious solutions.

Abdul Salam added that the countries of the coalition stopped prisoner exchange deals and that they do not pay attention to the humanitarian aspects. “We support the Yemeni reconciliation and we affirm that Yemen is for all,”.

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.

A UN panel has compiled a detailed report of civilian casualties caused by the Saudi military and its allies during their war against Yemen, saying the Riyadh-led coalition has used precision-guided munitions in its raids on civilian targets.

Sayyad Abdulmalik AL-Houthi claimed on one of his speech that Saudi Arabia is just a tool used by USA and Israel to fight Yemen to conquer it and wrestle control over Red Sea and Bab-AL-Mandab which will enable them to rule the world.

According to several reports, the coalition air campaign against Yemen has driven the impoverished country towards humanitarian disaster, as the coalitiondeadly campaign prevented the patients from travelling abroad for treatment and blocked the entry of medicine into the war-torn country.
