Why does the U.S backed , Saudi-led coalition sustain big losses last month?




The Artillery Unit of the Yemeni army forces killed and wounded 674 of the U.S backed, Saudi-led coalition ,destroyed 45 military machines and burned an arms and ammunition storage in August.

A statistic released by the Unit stated that it hit to the coalition on the fronts of West Coast, Nehm, Al-Baidha, Al-Jawf and the border fronts .

On the other hand,The General Authority for Fish Resources, on Saturday, announced that the victims of the fishermen by the coalition reached 442, stressing that the material losses of the fishing sector in the West Coast due to the direct aggression exceeded 5 billion dollars.

Head of the General Authority for Fish Resources, Abdul Qadir al-Wadai, told a joint news conference with the leadership of Hodeidah province that the US-Saudi aggression has committed dozens of crimes against Yemeni fishermen in the west coast of the country.

The attack took place off the port city of Hodeidah, near the island of Uqban, Yemen’s al-Masirah television network reported on Friday.

The head of the Yemeni Union of Fishermen said the attack targeted three fishing boats.

Also in August , at least 55 people were killed after the coalition aircrafts hit a hospital and a fishing harbor in Hodeidah.

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.
