Why do High Ranking Military Leaders Abandon Saudi-led Aggression?
A group of military commanders, officers, and intelligence agents, who were listed in the ranks of the Saudi forces, decided to benefit from the amnesty offered by Sana’a. They returned to Sana’a after releasing the truth about the US-Saudi aggression and the agenda put by coalition against Yemen. The efforts of the political leadership to promote national reconciliation seems to have reached the ears of those on the aggression’s side. Al-Bukhaiti, welcomed everyone, stressing that the homeland can accommodate all its people who refuse to submit to the forces of arrogance.
The deputy chairman of the Shura Council, a member of the National Reconciliation Committee and a member of Ansarullah Political Council, Mohammad Nasser Al-Bukhiti, received in Sana’a a number of leaders, military officers and leaders in the General People’s Congress. They joined the ranks and camps of the aggression forces in the West Coast, Marib and Al-Jawf fronts.
Tel Aviv is a partner to the Saudi war on Yemen and is “reaping the profits” from its partnership in the brutal aggression, Israel’s leading daily Haaretz, revealing that Israeli officers are training foreign mercenaries, led by the Colombians and Nepalese, in UAE-funded camps situated in Negev Desert.
In a report, Haaretz cited London-based Al-Khaleej Online as saying that the mercenaries have been recruited by Mohammed Dahlan, security adviser to Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, according to sources in a US House Intelligence Committee.
The United Arab Emirates has termed Saudi-backed elements operating in southern Yemen “terrorist militias,” exposing a deep rift between the two camps leading a coalition in a bloody war on Yemen.
In a statement, the UAE’s Foreign Ministry said it had carried out air raids against “terrorist militias” threatening the Riyadh-led coalition “based on confirmed field intelligence.”
The “preemptive operation” was an act of “self-defense” against “armed groups affiliated with terrorist organizations,” added the statement carried by the UAE’s official WAM news agency.
Amid a deepening rift in the Saudi-led coalition waging war on Yemen, Emirati warplanes are reported to have carried out raids against positions of Saudi-backed militants in support of allied separatists in Aden, with reports saying that the UAE-backed separatist forces have regained full control of the port city.
Al-Jazeera cited military sources as saying that UAE warplanes attacked positions of Saudi-backed militants loyal to ex-Yemeni president, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, in the Alam area at the eastern entrance to Aden. An unspecified number of pro-Hadi militants were killed in the clashes.
The Saudi-led coalition that has invaded Yemen has attacked a position of militia backed by coalition partner the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in Aden, describing the site as “a threat.”
“The coalition attacked one of the areas that pose a direct threat to an important government site,” Saudi state TV quoted a coalition statement as saying on Sunday, referring to the site where the former regime of Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi was occupying.
“This is only the first operation and will be followed by others… the Southern Transitional Council (STC) still has a chance to withdraw,” it added.
General Nasser Ali Al-Shibani, was killed with a member of the soldiers in Nehm front line. The General is top commander of the seventh military division.The Yemeni Army and the Popular Committees yesterday in Nehm targeted the Al-Shibani and resulted in direct clashes, which resulted in his killing with some of his Saudi-paid fighters.
“The forces of aggression have not been able to evacuate their dead and wounded in the confrontations,” Saba quoted a military source as saying. A number of bodies and wounded people arrived at the Marib hospital.
This comes in the context of successive victories achieved by The Yemeni Army and the Popular Committees on various fronts. It is considered a major blow to the so called “National Army,” and will impact their strategy in the fighting against the Yemeni Army and Committees.
In March 2015, the US -backed –Saudi-led aggresion 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 aggresion 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.
