Saudi-Led Forces Hire Sudanese Mercenaries after Heavy Losses in Aden
The Saudi-led forces fighting against the Yemeni government have hired foreign mercenaries, specially Sudanese soldiers, after they were badly defeated in the Southern port of Aden.
“Soldiers of the Sudanese army along with their vehicles were seen moving in several areas across the Southern province of Aden,” the Arabic-language Al-Manar TV quoted local sources as saying.
The sources reiterated that the move comes after heavy losses were inflicted upon the Emirati forces operating in Yemen as part of the Saudi-led coalition.
Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 208 days now to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 6,689 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.
Hadi stepped down in January and refused to reconsider the decision despite calls by Ansarullah revolutionaries of the Houthi movement.
Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi warplanes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
