Yemenis respond to the Saudi-led coalition hardly and softly!
The Yemeni army forces launched drone attacks on Tuesday against military airbase in Khamis Mushayt of Asir province in the south of Saudi Arabia on Tuesday, the army spokesman said in a statement obtained by YemenExtra.
The Qasef 2K drones targeted military facilities and aircraft hangars in the airbase, hitting the targets accurately, spokesman confirmed.
He added the strikes come in retaliatory response to the war crimes and violations against the Yemeni people.
Leader of the Revolution Sayyed Abdulmalik al-Houthi met on the same day with the UN envoy to Yemen Martin Griffiths to discussed the UN-sponsored Sweden agreement developments on Hodeidah province.
At the meeting, al-Houthi held the coalition and its paid fighters the fully responsible for the crimes and violations committed against citizens in Hodeidah.
“Yemen is ready for a just peace if the aggression states stop the brutal war, lift the unjust siege for airports and ports,” al-Houthi said.
During the meeting, Sayyed al-Houthi touched upon the Supreme Political Council’s initiative to open a special account at the Central Bank branch in Hodeidah for the states employees’ salaries, reminding the United Nations that the initiative agreeing with Stockholm Agreement.
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.
