Yemeni Air Defenses down Saudi led coalition spy drone after the US announcement to stop the war
Air Defenses of the Yemeni army forces downed, on Wednesday, a spy plane belonging to the Saudi-led coalition, backed by the US, in AdhDhahir, west of Sa’ada.
Last week ,two spy planes were downed in the West Coast and Jizan .
The residential areas of Adh Dhahir and Haidan borders have been subjected to intensive shelling by the coalition during the past 24 hours, which has exceeded more than 300 rockets and shells.
According to a local source for YemenExtra, the shells directly targeted the houses and farms of the citizens and the roads linking the villages, leaving heavy damage.
This comes after the United States declared its call to stop the war and set at the negotiating table.
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 60,000 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.
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.
