Dozens of UAE-, Saudi-Backed Mercenaries, ISIS Terrorists Killed in Yemeni Op in Ma’rib

Dozens of UAE-, Saudi-Backed Mercenaries, ISIS Terrorists Killed in Yemeni Op in Ma’rib

Alwaght- Yemeni Armed Forces have launched retaliatory missile and drone strikes on places of gathering belonging to the UAE- and Saudi-backed mercenaries and the ISIS terrorists in flashpoint Ma’rib Province, inflicting heavy losses on them.

In a series of tweets on Friday, Brigadier General Yahya Saree, spokesman for the Yemeni Armed Forces, said the raids prevented the advance of the militants towards Ma’rib’s Haraib and A'ain districts.

He added that four Yemeni ballistic missiles and a drone hit the enemy positions accurately during the operation, killing and wounding dozens of them as well as destroying their armored vehicles.

The enemy’s failed advance in Ma’rib involved more than 24 airstrikes, but the retaliatory raids “caused a state of terror and a great collapse among” its ranks, Saree said.

“The armed forces are determined to defend the people and the country by all available means,” he stressed.

3-The armed forces call on the people and families of the UAE mercenaries to withdraw their sons from engaging them in battles that serve only America and its alias in the region.

The oil-rich Ma’rib Province has turned into a focus of the Yemeni army’s liberation operations over the past months.

Currently, Yemeni army soldiers and allied fighters from Popular Committees are inching towards Ma’rib’s provincial capital following gains on the ground that ensued clashes with Saudi- and UAE-backed militants and allied terrorists.

The Saudi-led coalition has been conducting deadly aerial assaults to prevent the Yemeni troops from reaching Ma’rib city.

Saudi Arabia launched the devastating war on its southern neighbor in March 2015 in collaboration with a number of its allies, such as the UAE, and with arms and logistics support from the US and several Western countries.

The aim was to return to power the former Riyadh-backed regime and crush the popular Ansarullah movement which has been running state affairs in the absence of an effective government in Yemen.

The offensive has stopped well shy of all of its goals, despite killing tens of thousands of Yemeni civilians and turning the entirety of Yemen into the scene of the world’s worst humanitarian crisis.

The Yemeni forces have pledged to continue their retaliatory attacks until the devastating Saudi war and crippling all-out siege on their country come to an end.
