How do Yemenis face UAE’s violations in Aden
Yafi’a tribes and sheikhs in Yemen’s southern province of Abayn on Monday held a protest rally to condemn arbitrary acts and violations committed by the UAE-backed paid fighters against citizens in Aden city.
During the rally, the tribes rejected the paid fighters’ attempts and plans seeking to drag the southern provinces into a conflict in the regions, addeding that ” we affirm our respect for all Yemeni tribes and their territories, and reject describing Yafi’a tribes as a tool to mobilize and offend others.”
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.
