Here’s what make what happened in Yemen clear!
Massive attacks by the Yemeni army forces aginst the Saudi-led coalition, backed by the US,as data shows US arms deals with Saudi Arabia and the UAE which are “dramatically understated” and billions more than previously reported.
Army Forces spokesman, Brigadier Yahya Sar,i said on Wednesday that “what happened in Khamis Mushayt area is caused by the Saudi Army training, under the participation of foreign officers. “Our Forces declare their military operations as usual in all military operations anywhere,” he explained.
In a statement, he explained quickly that “what was published by the coalition of aggression are false allegations; they conceal malicious intentions to commit crimes against our Yemeni People, noting that what was published by the coalition of aggression on Khamis Mushait incident is an attempt to cover up their military failure.”
Brigadier Sari confirmed that the Yemeni military after March 26, 2015 is not as it was before, neither organizational nor intellectual. Yemen’s military today and its practical reality adopt its new history and the history of Yemen.
He pointed out that Yemeni army forces are committed to executing what has been established by the leader of the revolution, Sayyed Abdulmalik, in his speech on the day of national steadfastness, especially with regard to the development of military capabilities as well as formulating a defensive strategy that takes into account geographical depth as a starting point towards liberating every inch of the homeland.
The Yemen army forces , for their part,launched on Friday an air and missile operation against the coalition forces in Nehm district of Sana’a province . The army’s drones and missile units targeted several weapon stores belonging to the coalition paid fighters in Fardat Nehm, hitting its target with precise accuracy and causing violent explosions in the targeted area.
The US and Britain traditionally sold serialized weapons to Saudi Arabia to make it the customer of the most expensive weapons in the world.
Remarks were made by Mohammed Ali al-Houthi, the Chairman of the Supreme Revolutionary Committee of Yemen, in an interview with The Guardian published on Friday.
“Britain sending aid does not change the tragic reality of its arms sales. Jeremy Hunt cannot promote peace while at the same time acting as an arms salesman,” al-Houthi said, slamming Hunt for pressing Germany to relax its arms sales ban on Saudi Arabia.
Data collected by arms trade watchdog Security Assistance Monitor (SAM) shows the US has struck at least $68.2 billion worth of deals with the two countries since they started their war in Yemen.
TheTrump administration is “putting a stamp of approval on what these countries are doing” in Yemen so much so that over two-thirds of the entire Saudi combat-ready fleet comes from the US.
The coalition failed in its deadly campaign against Yemen to achieve its objectives despite enjoying support provided by Washington and other allies. That is part of a speech by the leader of Yemen’s Houthi Ansarullah movement on the fourth anniversary of the Yemeni nation’s resistance against the coalition.
Al-Jazeera News channel reported on Monday in an investigation the Saudi recruitment of Yemeni children. The children, desperately poor, are being recruited to fight along the Saudi border to defend it from the Yemeni army forces.
The 11-minute investigation provided tragic stories of the children who were forced, after the crisis of the coalition war on Yemen, to seek suitable jobs to support their families and save them from starvation to fall into the hands of the trafficker who lead them to what the reporter called “childhood crematoria”.
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.
