Saudi Invasion of Yemen

By Mahdi Garba
Saudi Arabia the richest country in the Middle East is pounding Yemen-the poorest in the region since 26th March 2015 under the pretext of installing the Yemeni fugitive President, Abdu Rabbu Mansur Hadi. So far, the Saudi led airstrikes claim the lives of more than 5000 civilians mostly women and children.

The people of Yemen are fed up with Hadi’s dictatorship. They want to be free from Saudi hegemonic policies. Abdu Rabbu Mansur Hadi was not

the legitimate president of Yemen. He was elected by the GCC countries range by the US to serve as a Trojan horse. Saudi said it’s protecting the Yemeni constitution while everyone believe that there is no constitution in Yemen, so the Saudi invasion has nothing to do with stability.

Saudi deputy crown prince and Defense minister Muhammad bin Salman the favorite son of the tyrant King Salman bin Abdul-Aziz remain the

mastermind of this terror. Early September, sources said he engineered the removal of the Saudi minister of state Saad bin Khalid al-Jabri, who is a supporter of crown prince Muhammad bin Nayef, for spreading rumors that Muhammad bin Salman targets the throne of his tyrant Dad-Salman bin Abdul-Aziz al-Saud.

It’s indisputable that during the last Hajj, the Prince’s convoy caused an accident in Mina-Makkah leaving about 4000 pilgrims dead. Despite this tragedy Saudi airplanes are still attacking Mosques, Markets, Residential buildings and refugee camps.

According to a report last month, the Washington and London are the main weapon suppliers to the Kingdom and have much capacity to

influence Saudi policy. The United States has sold more than $90 billion weapons to the Kingdom since 2010, the report says. The United States and the United Kingdom provided logistics and intelligence support to Saudi since the beginning of her atrocities in Yemen.

In August, during King Salman bin Abdul-Aziz’s visit to the President of the US, Barrack Obama promised additional security aid to Saudi. London also pledged to supply the Royal Saudi Air Force (RSAF) with necessary equipment.

An Iranian NGO, the Red Crescent has send a 2,500 tones humanitarian aid to the Yemeni people but the Saudi soldiers backed the US government bombed the Port of Hodeida. The humanitarian ship changed it route stopping at Djibouti.

Two days later, the Saudi led coalition bombed a medical University in Hodeida. 12 medical students were killed during the attack.  During Eid prayers at Belaili mosque in Sana’a, a suicide bomber attacked the gathering. 30 people died instantly and scores injured.

Due to severe import restrictions by the Saudi-US naval forces, multitude of Yemeni population are dying of water scarcity, shortage of foods and lack of health care. Human rights organizations have accused Saudi of using cluster bombs on civilians as it is banned by the united nation.

According to an official report, more than 40,000 industrial enterprises (medium-small) closed because of the invasion. Some

Yemenis flee their motherland to Somalia and Djibouti through the strait of Babul Mandab.

With the Yemeni popular army and Ansarullah –tagged Shia Houti Houti rebels by the mainstream media, Yemen will be a living hell for the

Saudi Arabia and its allies. From their retaliatory attacks in Saudi military bases in Jizan and some part of Saudi, one can conclude that Saudi will soon meet her waterloo in Yemen.
