Ansarullah Leader: Mediators to Settle Crisis in Yemen Assassinated by Riyadh
“The houses of many of the national and prominent figures who were trying to end the war in Ta’iz and other provinces were pounded by the Saudi warplanes directly,” Ali al-Asemi told FNA on Sunday.
Noting that Saudi Arabia fears any understanding and agreement among the Yemenis to stop the internal conflicts, he said, “Riyadh seeks to further flare up the flames of war and differences in Yemen.”
Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen since March 2015 to restore power to Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 12,800 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.
Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi bombers are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
According to several reports, the Saudi-led air campaign against Yemen has drove the impoverished country towards humanitarian disaster.
Hundreds of Yemeni tribal fighters have joined the army and Ansarullah forces to fight against Saudi Arabia and its allies as Riyadh’s deadly air campaign continues to kill and wound more civilians.
Popular forces also vowed a harsh response in revenge for the massacre of the Yemenis.
On Saturday, the Yemeni army’s missile units hit Saudi Arabia’s strategic military base in Najran province, South of the kingdom, with a Zalzal-2 missile.
The Saudi army’s al-Tala’a military base in Najran was reportedly pounded by a Zalzal-2 missile in retaliation for the Saudi airstrikes and massacre of civilians in Yemen.
The Yemeni army also hit Qaza, al-Sharqan, Abu Maz and al-Salabeh military bases in Jizan province with several Katyusha rockets.
