Army drones launch attack on coalition’s paid fighters , the coalition fires over 100 shells
The Yemeni army’s drones launched on Friday an attack on the Saudi-led coalition, backed by the US, paid fighters in Marib province, a military official told YemenExtra.
Qasif 1 drone targeted gatherings of the paid fighters in Surwah district, the official said.
Coalition paid fighters on Friday fired more than 100 shells to a farm in Hodeidah province.The shelling targeted the farm in west of Tuhaita district.
Head of the Supreme Revolutionary Committee, Mohammed Ali al-Houthi, commented on the decisions made by the Saudi regime on Thursday, sacking of a number of its military commanders and ministers headed by Foreign Minister Adel Jubeir.
“The Saudi decisions are indicators of a political failure to confront Turkey about Khashoggi’s murdering,” Mohammed Ali al-Houthi said on his Twitter account.
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.
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.
