TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) – Yemen’s army and fighters from Popular Committees launched a retaliatory attack against Saudi-backed militants in Taiz, killing and injuring dozens of them in the southwestern province.
The army troops on Saturday killed and injured tens of mercenaries in Taiz after they attempted to infiltrate into the area of Mafalees in Hayfan, a military official told Saba news agency on condition of anonymity.
Yemen’s defenseless people have been under massive attacks by the coalition for 4 years but Riyadh has reached none of its objectives in Yemen so far.
Since March 2015, Saudi Arabia and some of its Arab allies have been carrying out deadly airstrikes against the Houthi Ansarullah movement in an attempt to restore power to fugitive former president Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.
The Yemeni Ministry of Human Rights announced in a statement on March 25, 2018 that the war had left 600,000 civilians dead and injured until then. The war and the accompanying blockade have also caused famine across Yemen.
