Early this year, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Government of National Salvation issued an official statement on the expansionist ambitions of Saudi Arabia in the two governorates of Al-Mahra and Hadramout. The Ministry explained in the statement that “it is following up with the situation and realizing the real objectives of the Saudi Military forces and the total siege imposed on Yemen since March 26, 2015. These objectives are no longer hidden to anyone, including the ambitions of Saudi Arabia in the governorates of Al-Mahra and Hadramout. Saudi Arabia is trying to extend an oil pipeline to the Arabian Sea and build an oil port on the coast in Al-Maharah province. This comes as an violation of Yemen’s sovereignty and international laws.”
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.
