Yemen releases footage of drone attacks on targets deep inside Saudi Arabia, UAE

Yemen’s Armed Forces have released new footage depicting their retaliatory drone attacks on targets deep inside Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

Yemen’s War Media outlet issued the footage on Tuesday, hours after the Armed Forces’ spokesman Yahya Sare’e announced its release.

The exact date of the reprisal counterattacks in the footage is not clear.

The Yemeni forces have recently escalated their missile and drone attacks against the Persian Gulf countries, which are arch-allies in a 2015-present war on the impoverished Arab country.

For more than six years, the Riyadh-led war on the besieged Arab country, aimed at re-installing the regime of Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, has spawned the most horrible humanitarian disaster.

The protracted war has killed hundreds of thousands of Yemeni civilians and turned the largely mountainous country into the scene of the world’s worst humanitarian crisis.

The United States, first under Barack Obama and later under Donald Trump and Joe Biden, has been the Saudi-led coalition’s partner in the devastating war that has left hundreds of thousands of Yemenis dead and displaced millions more.  

The US and its Western allies, especially the UK, have backed the horrific war in Yemen by supplying lethal arms to Riyadh and its allies, chief among them the UAE, as well as logistical and political support.

Despite the global conspiracy to crush the Yemeni resistance forces, they have only grown stronger, leaving Riyadh and its allies, most notably the United Arab Emirates, bogged down with losses.

The Yemeni forces have recently staged at least three major rounds of retaliatory strikes against the UAE in the space of a single month, and conduct similar counter-raids against Saudi Arabia on an almost daily basis.

The Yemeni Armed Forces have vowed to step up their reprisal if the Arab countries failed to wind down the warfare, which has turned Yemen into the site of the world’s worst humanitarian crisis and shattered much of the nation’s infrastructure.
