How do Yemeni citizens fight the Saudi-led coalition?
Tribal meetings were almost daily staged by tribes and sheikhs of Yemeni provinces to back the Yemeni army forces in confronting the Saudi-led coalition and its paid fighters, backed by the US, in the battle fronts.
At the meetingS, the participants affirmed on the importance on the ongoing support with food convoy and fighters to deter the coalition and its plans that target Yemen.
“We must to stand united to stop the aggression, lift siege and defend the country and its sovereignty,” tribes reaffirmed.
They also condemned the war crimes and violations committed by the coalition against the Yemeni people.
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.
