How does Saudi Arabia along with Africa kill more Yemenis ?
The Chief Executive Officer of the state-owned Saudi Arabian Military Industries (SAMI), Andreas Schwer, stated that Saudi Arabia is holding talks with South Africa’s largest arms manufacturer and is considering buying a stake in the state-run company Denel, a defence industry firm which currently undergoing a decrease in profits.
Paramount Group, a private South African defence industry enterprise, claimed it is already holding talks with Saudi Arabian Military Industries.
Schwer said: “To clarify, we are involved in a discussion process with all the major arms companies in South Africa, not just Paramount Group or Denel.”
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.
More than 2,200 others have died of cholera, and the crisis has triggered what the United Nations has described as the world’s worst humanitarian disaster.
