Yemen: The Forgotten War

The war against Yemen will enter its 4th year this month.

 

On March 26, 2015, Saudi Arabia, accompanied by a coalition of ten Muslim countries, launched an air military strike against Yemen, of which the Yemeni people were the main victims.

 

This war, waged by the richest countries of the Middle East against the poorest, is still going on, without any political or media attention.

 

If the Saudi aggressor is considered the main protagonist of the conflict, we know that the Western powers are also involved in this war, due to important geostrategic interests.

 

Thus, Yemen pays the price to neighboring Saudi Arabia because of its geographical proximity to the criminal Zionist entity, which is paralyzed at the idea of ​​seeing Yemen fully integrate with the “Axis of Resistance”.

 

Westerners therefore provide military advisers and mercenaries of all kinds, and especially advanced weapons that allows the Saudi coalition to almost continuously bomb a country of which there are only ruins left.

 

Among these Western countries is France, which is one of the privileged suppliers of Saudi Arabia and its allies. In fact, Riyadh is its number 1 client and Saudis arms purchase represent nearly 20% of the annual exports of French weapons.

 

Heavy bombardment using equipment provided by France has already claimed the lives of more than 10,000 Yemenis, and the country is now in the throes of an unprecedented humanitarian crisis ravaged by famine and disease.

 

According to the UN, the lack of access to safe drinking water and the garbage accumulation caused by the prolongation of the war has confronted 3 million Yemenis with a cholera epidemic that affects the entire country. In fact, the World Health Organization (WHO) reports more than one million people infected by cholera, while according to UNICEF ​​(United Nations Children’s Fund), more than 20 million people, including 11 million children, need urgent humanitarian assistance.

 

14.8 million of them are deprived of basic healthcare, 17 million people do not know where to find their next meal, and 7 million people are totally dependent on food aid. Severe acute malnutrition threatens the lives of 400,000 children.

 

The blockade imposed by the Saudi coalition, leading to the closure of most of the country’s airports, ports and land ports, is aggravating an already catastrophic situation. The blockade leaves the people of Yemen without any outside humanitarian aid, putting millions of vulnerable children and families at risk.

 

Despite these frightening figures, the United Nations is issuing soft statements of principle and the international community is turning a deaf ear.

 

While our media tells us everything that is necessary in order to intervene in Syria and protect innocent civilians from the evil Bashar, or just as they justified the intervention in Libya to protect the civilians of Benghazi against the Libyan army, why does this media not mention the massacres taking place in Yemen?

 

On the contrary, they totally avoid talking about those massacres to praise the modernism of the crown prince of the Saudi kingdom, the main architect of this devastating conflict, Mohamed bin Salman, aka “MBS”, who promises to bring Arabia to a new era.

 

This criminal, nicknamed the “red prince”, due to the blood on his hands, is received with honor wherever he goes, as we have seen during his recent trip to the United Kingdom where the red carpet was unfolded, as well as during his current stay in the United States.

 

The Anti-Zionist Party once again warns about the criminal aggression against the people of Yemen, by the bombs of the Saudi coalition that our countries have provided.

 

We demand from our leaders that they cease all arms sales to the members of this coalition, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates in the lead, so as to not have the French people be a part in these massacres and in this major humanitarian crisis.

 

We also stand with the people of Yemen in total solidarity, as well as to its heroic resistance fighters. Despite their limited means, they defeated the Wahhabi-Zionist aggressors, who no longer know how to get out of the swamp into which they got themselves.

 

It is clear, however, that this “war” cannot be won by the Saudis, their allies or their sponsors, because history shows that one can bombard a people, but not the spirit of resistance and the popular will.

 

It is this spirit that stirs the Yemeni fighters against the Saudi army, despite all the means that the masters of the Saudis place at their disposal.
