Senegalese Militias Collaborating with Al-Qaeda in Fight against Yemen
Ali al-Bukhaiti, one of Ansarullah leaders, told al-Mayadeen that the Arab countries which are members of a Saudi-led coalition that has launched a war against Yemen for over 100 days now are supporting the al-Qaeda terrorists and forces loyal to Hadi from air and ground to force the Yemeni people to retreat from Aden.
He also said that African nationals, specially the Senegalese, are also present in the battle.
Meantime, Military sources in the Southern battlefields confirmed that the Yemeni army and Ansarullah forces, in massive counter-attack operations, stormed the positions of fugitive President Mansours Hadi’s forces and al-Qaeda terrorists and retook full control over the captured areas in Aden, including its international airport.
The sources said that the Yemeni army and the revolutionary forces of Ansarullah pushed back the Saudi-backed fighters, who had captured some parts of Aden and its international airport.
The sources said that the Hadi forces and al-Qaeda terrorist enjoyed full support of Saudi Arabia and the UAE in their recent offensive against Aden.
The sources added that the Saudi-led coalition bombed over 100 of times the city of Aden and its outskirts to prevent the Yemeni army and popular forces to recapture the fallen parts of city but the country’s army men continued fighting against the supporters of Hadi and forced them to retreat from the city and its nearby areas.
The sources went on to say that the Saudi-backed forces have another plan to launch another attack on the Aden city, therefor they are collecting fresh fighters and new military equipment, including tanks and heavy weapons.
Ansarullah popular movement has been in war with Al-Qaeda and the remaining militias of former President President Manour Hadi for the last several months.
After Ansarullah’s major gains in the fight, Riyadh launched airstrikes against Yemen on March 26 without a UN’s mandate. Saudi Arabia aims to undermine the Ansarullah popular fighters and restore power to fugitive President Mansour Hadi, who is a staunch ally of Riyadh.
Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi warplanes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
The monarchy’s aerial bombardments have so far claimed the lives of at least 5,119 people, mostly women and children.
