Saudi Arabia , UAE on the brink of bloodshed in southern Yemen
Saudi Arabia has begun recruiting and arming the people of Abyan province after the United Arab Emirates announced the withdrawal of its fprces from Yemen, sources in the southern provinces said on Wednesday.
The sources confirmed that Saudi Arabia recruited in one week more than four thousand citizens of Abyan, while the people of the province fear the explosion at any moment between those recruited by the UAE and those recruited by Saudi Arabia.
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.
