Yemeni Military Spox : @army21ye :Today we review some numbers and information on the confrontations of five years of steadfastness and of the challenge, despite the huge difference in the number and equipment between Yemen and its enemies.
1-The Yemeni armed forces succeeded in countering the fierce aggressive attack, even though it was outside the scope of the military and combat readiness to start the aggression.
2-The aggression raids announced by us are limited to what was monitored, and there are raids that were not monitored, especially during the first years of the aggression.

Origins as an anti-Saudi resistance group

The #Houthi movement was founded in the 1990s by Hussein Badreddin al-Houthi, a member of #Yemen’s Zaidi Shia minority, which makes up about one-third of the population. Hussein was killed by Yemeni soldiers in 2004, and the
group is now led by his brother Abdul Malik.

The Zaidis, once a powerful force in north Yemen, were sidelined during the 1962-70 civil war and then further alienated in the 1980s as Salafist Sunni ideals gained prominence across the border in Saudi Arabia, which exported the

This will be an ongoing thread regarding life here in #SaudiArabia, during the #CoronaVirus (#CoVid19) #outbreak.

The #Saudi Government was initially quite strongly criticized for it's preventative measures, yet now many criticizing nations have declared states of #emergency.
While basic things like #facemasks have been hoarded elsewhere & sold for up to ten times their market price, here in #Saudi national factories are producing #FaceMaskForSale in the domestic market.

Thank you @MCgovSA 💚🌴

According to Fadi al-Murshidi, media official of the so-called Southern Transitional Council (STC), some 450 US and British soldiers arrived in #Yemen's #Aden, al-Masa press reported.

Shame on all humanity to see the suffering of the children of Yemen and continue to keep a defending silence.
It is a disgrace to all humanity to keep watching the children of Yemen in agony and dying from preventable diseases and man-made starvation without trying to
do something about it.

Enough is enough.
Please break the silence if you care.

Western mainstream media will never report on these victims.
#Americans will never know that their government's support of the #Saudis is killing innocent children, but Ignorance is never an excuse for such sins.

#Mahrah resistance calls for armed struggle against Saudi occupation

Sheikh Ali al-Harizi, top leader of the popular resistance in Mahrah province, said on Tuesday that the peaceful movement has moved to the stage of armed conflict against Saudi Arabia after raids by
#Saudi Apache helicopters.
Al-Harizi confirmed in an interview with “YemenNet” that the sons of Mahrah are at war with the Saudi occupation forces, which he described after violating the sovereignty of Yemen and usurping ports, airport, port and camps.

He pointed out that the
peaceful movement and legal demands were not respected, which forced them to enter the stage of armed conflict after storming the border port and bombing citizens defending their land and the sovereignty of their country with #Saudi Apache helicopters.

Marine neighborhoods in Yemen are subject to the largest destruction in an indication of systematic targeting of this wealth, which is a source of income for most Yemenis,

In addition to toxic waste, the coalition allowed unjust fishing by allowing shelf vessels
while its forces were abusing local fishermen.
During the past few days, the inhabitants of the southern governorates have woken up to a great catastrophe by changing the color of the sea and the amount of dead fish in its southern coasts.

Despite the massacres and the unimaginable cruelty perpetrated by the imperialist invaders, despite thousands of innocent people tortured and killed, the courage and faith of the Yemeni people will prevail in the end.

By Brecht Jonkers…
This month (March 2020) marks a tragic anniversary of a conflict that has plagued the people of Yemen for five years. On March 26, 2015, a coalition of the most corrupt and bloodthirsty regimes in the Arab world invaded the Republic of #Yemen, led by #Ksa and the #UAE and
with full backing of the #US, #Britain and the #Zionist entity.

In their rabid hatred of the blessed land and people of #Yemen, and in their desperate attempt to destroy the Ansarullah liberation movement and the National Salvation Government that had freed #Yemen from

#Saudi announced a new but limited 3-month amnesty for migrants overstaying their visa from:

▶️Ethiopia 🇪🇹
▶️Somalia 🇸🇴
▶️Nigeria 🇳🇬
▶️Chad 🇹🇩
▶️Eritrea 🇪🇷

The only option for those who want to avail is to self-deport without incurring any penalties (fees or jail time)
Amnesty also covers regular migrants who accumulated traffic ticket fees. No migrant can leave the country with a final exit visa without paying those fees.

Beneficiary of the amnesty won't be blacklisted but if they want to return, they'll have to repay any outstanding fees.
Any amnesty in any way, shape or form is indicative of a failure of the migration and labor policies, specifically the #Kafala system.

Good news: An Iraqi committee has been formed to oversee the implementation of the withdrawal of all foreign forces from #Iraq, including the US forces. The US, UK, France, and tens of countries involved are informed of the procedure. #QassemSoleimani

I have to bow to the request to offer a further explanation here:e: The Iraqi government and all Iraqi forces agreed to allow the US and other forces to leave within 3 months.+
If Foreign forces refuse to complete the withdrawal, these will be considered occupation forces and therefore legitimate targets.

This is why I said the other day that no Iraqi anti-US group was responsible for rocket launching against the US embassy.+

The Saudi coalition that is warring against #Yemen is slowly crumbling. In recent months, #Sudan reduced its troop deployment from 15,000 to 5,000 - and now down to 675. #Iran is backing the #Houthi government against the #Saleh loyalists backed by the USA, #SaudiArabia & #UAE
The #Saudi-#UAE coalition against #Yemen includes 9 Arab state militaries, 10 support nations (including the USA), Blackwater/#Academi mercenaries, #alQaeda & #ISIS-Yemen. Yes, the USA is aligned with al Qaeda & ISIS forces in Yemen - just like in #Syria.
The #CIA continues to use #alQaeda & #ISIS to do the dirty work of the New World Order. Trump sells weapons to Saudi Arabia for the #MIC. The CIA then diverts some of the weapons from the Saudis to the terrorists. Once again, the POTUS has plausible deniability. #TerroristTrump
