In areas under the control of Ansarrah, officials disscuse ways of fighting corruption
President of the Supreme Political Council Mahdi al-Mashat , appointed by the Supereme Political Council, on Monday and during the coalition’s war on Yemen considered the fight against corruption an essential cornerstone for building the state, without which no development could be achieved.
During his meeting with Head of the Supreme National Authority for Combating Corruption (SNACC) Dr. Mohammed al-Ghashm, President al-Mashat confirmed that the state would make every effort to help SNACC to overcome all the difficulties facing it, while meeting reviewed the arrangements made by the Authority to carry out its work and support trends of building the modern Yemeni state according to the national vision.
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.
