A new batch of Sudanese mercenaries, including Saudi officers arrived in the southern port City of Aden on Sunday, media sources reported.

According to press sources, the Sudanese force that arrived in Aden is estimated at 100 soldiers.

The sources added that the mercenary soldiers were transported on four buses towards the headquarters of the Coalition of Aggression in the city of Briga district.

Sudan has been participating with more than 10,000 mercenaries in the forces of the Saudi-led aggression against Yemen since March 2015.

Hundreds of mercenaries were killed on the frontlines of the fighting at the hands of Yemeni army and popular committees.

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.
