Yemeni snipers kill, wound 56 of their enemy in several battlefronts
Sniper units of Yemen army forces killed and injured over than 56 of Saudi troops in different front lines over the past 72 hours, a military official told YemenExtra on Monday.
The army shot dead 50 of the coalition’s paid fighters and six of Saudi soldiers, added the official.
The coalition has been striking Yemen since March 2015 to restore power to Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The coalition has so far killed and wounded at least 600,000 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.
Despite the coalition’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters,part of the Yemeni army forces, the coalition’s bombers are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
According to several reports, the campaign against Yemen has driven the impoverished country towards humanitarian disaster, as the coalition’s deadly campaign prevented the patients from travelling abroad for treatment and blocked the entry of medicine into the war-torn country.
Yemen is the world’s largest humanitarian crisis with more than 22 million people in need and is seeing a spike in needs, fuelled by ongoing conflict, a collapsing economy and diminished social services and livelihoods.
Several Western countries, the United States and Britain in particular, are also accused of being complicit in the ongoing aggression as they supply the Riyadh regime with advanced weapons and military equipment as well as logistical , intelligence and ground assistance.
