113 recruits secede from coalition camps, return homeland
Interior Ministry in the National Salvation Government on Friday said that 113 recruits in ranks of Saudi-led aggression coalition, including leaders, returned to the homeland during the past 10 days.
“The security services have facilitated the return of those misled persons to their villages and homes in several provinces,” the ministry explained in a statement.
All the returnees had contacted the phone number “176”, which was allocated to those who wish to exploit the decision of amnesty and leave the aggression coalition camps, the ministry added.
The ministry called on all misled people to take advantage of the amnesty and return to the homeland lineup
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.
