Member of Ansaruallah Political Bureau Mohammed Nasser al-Bukhaiti on Friday said that a senior military commander of the UAE-backed paid fighters arrived in the capital Sanaa.

“Counterfeit and useless drugs are spreading in the markets of Aden and the southern provinces at prices close to the price of the original drug,” said cancer patients in a plea to news websites on Friday.
Patients confirmed that the available cancer drugs endanger their lives because most of them had spoiled due to poor storage in the drug stores, amid absence of the health ministry in Hadi’s government which does not pay any attention to the health aspect in Aden and other provinces.

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.
