Yemeni Tribes Back Retaliatory Attacks on Saudi Arabia, UAE

SANA’A (Dispatches) – Yemeni tribes in the central province of Ma’rib have announced general mobilization in support of recent retaliatory operations deep inside Saudi Arabia and the UAE.
Local media reports said the tribes of Murad, Bani Dhabian and Qaifa in the Rahba district, located south of Ma’rib Province, rallied to support the Yemeni army and fighters from the allied Popular Committees in confronting the Saudi-led aggression.
Under the banner of “Confronting escalation with escalation,” the tribes hailed Yemeni troops and their allies for carrying out “Yemen Storm” operations last month against Saudi Arabia and the UAE with the use of homegrown ballistic missiles and combat drones.
The participants condemned crimes committed by Saudi-led coalition forces against Yemeni civilians, saying the atrocities are in flagrant violation of international regulations and human rights laws.
The attendees, including sheikhs and notable figures of the strategic Yemeni province, denounced the silence of the international community towards such violations and called on the Yemeni army and the allied Popular Committees to intensify retaliatory attacks on the aggressor states.
Meanwhile, the Saudi-led coalition conducted fresh airstrikes as well as missile and artillery raids on residential areas in several Yemeni provinces, killing at least one civilian and injuring more than ten others.
Yemen’s al-Masirah TV channel reported on Tuesday that Saudi-led warplanes had bombarded northwestern Hajjah Province 18 times, leaving one civilian dead and 10 more wounded.
The fighter jets also carried out airstrikes on the Yemeni provinces of al-Jawf, Ma’rib, and Ta’izz.
Additionally, six Yemeni civilians were injured as Saudi missile and artillery attacks targeted the Monabbih district of Sa’ada province.
Over the past 24 hours, the Saudi-led coalition fighter jets recorded 95 violations of a ceasefire declared in the port city of Hudaydah.
Saudi Arabia launched the devastating military aggression against its southern neighbor in March 2015 in collaboration with a number of its allied states and with arms and logistics support from the U.S. and several Western states.
