Yemeni army forces make the coalition lose aerial control
Yemeni army forces intercepted and targeted an unmanned aerial vehicle belonging to the Saudi-led military coalition , backed by the US, in the skies over the country’s southwestern province of Ta’izz.
The media bureau of the Houthi Ansarullah movement announced in a statement that Yemeni forces shot down the drone as it was on a reconnaissance mission over al-Wazi’iyah district on Wednesday afternoon.
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.
