Yemen has been since March 26 under brutal aggression by Saudi-led coalition. Thousands have been martyred and injured in the attack, with the vast majority of them are civilians.
However, Yemeni army, backed by popular committees and tribal fighter has been responding to the Saudi aggression, with several border areas in the Saudi Arabia are under the fire of those fighters.
Riyadh launched the attack on Yemen in a bid to restore power to Yemen’s fugitive president Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi who is a close ally to Saudi Arabia.
