Yemeni army forces try to stop the war with 60 offensive operations over 3 months
Armed forces spokesman Brigadier General Yahya Sari said the air force has carried out 60 offensive operations during the past three months, with an average of two operations every 72 hours.
The spokesman added that the targeting of Khamis Mushait base made it paralyzed by more than 60%, forcing the enemy to evacuate the base of weapons.
He stressed that these operations revealed the size of confusion political, media, military and security of the Saudi regime and that the leadership of the armed forces is considering options to expand operations of the air force in the course of the next phase.
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.
