“Defense Ministry and Command of General Staff are receiving contacts from sheikhs, leaders and others who wish to return to the lap of the motherland,” the director of the Moral Guidance Department at the Defense Ministry and Army spokesman, Brigadier General Yayah Sarea said on Monday.
According to the Army spokesman, “The free number is (176) allocated to receiving contacts from those who wish to return home from sheikhs, leaders and others who have been misleading by the coalition, adding that ” there is a preparation of a continuous follow-up room to coordinate and facilitate the return of those who want to return to Yemen and its defense forces against the Saudi-led coaltion, and take the advantage from the amnesty decision.”
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.
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.
