Almost 100 Sudanese mercenaries killed by Yemen defence

Published

SANA’A – During heavy combat against the forces of aggression, the Yemeni Armed Forces have killed almost 100 Sudanese mercenaries, including three of their commanders, in the Midi desert.

A military source spoke to the Yemen Press Agency about heavy fighting breaking out in Midi on Thursday, during which at least 95 Sudanese mercenaries were confirmed to have been killed.

The Sudanese, many of whom are Janjaweed militias hired by Saudi and Emirati financiers, had tried to advance towards Midi in the Hajjah Governorate of Yemen, but were soundly defeated by the defenders of the Yemeni Republic.

Amongst the casualties was a high officer, Colonel Abdulbagi, who commanded an entire battalion of Sudanese guns-for-hire. Two other officers, Lieutenant Ibrahim Othman and Lieutenant Salem Obeid Ali al-Rashidi, also met their death in the sands of Midi.

Dozens more mercenaries were wounded or incapacitated, and at least 5 military vehicles alongside a minesweeper were destroyed as well. This despite the fact that the Saudi-led coalition attempted to support the Sudanese attack by carrying out no less than 15 air raids, all of which were unsuccessful.

In the wake of last week’s brutal rape of a Yemeni woman by a Sudanese mercenary near Hodeidah, many in Yemen have vowed vengeance on the hired Janjaweed militias, warning that none of them will be safe until they cease their aggression against the Yemeni nation.

SANA’A – The international envoy for Yemen, Martin Griffiths, has not contacted with the national salvation government about holding a new round of consultations in Sweden, Information Minister Deifallah Al-Shami said on Friday.

“So far, there is no communication about finding a peaceful, just and comprehensive solution at all,” Deifallah Al-Shami told Sputnik in response to a question whether they had received an invitation to participate in the peace consultations in Sweden.

He commented on the UN role in this field, saying: “there is no even a vision or agenda nor clear affairs to hold lasting peace consultations at all.”

There are only calls released as media invitations, he said, adding that UN has not provided any vision or any agenda for dialogue.

“We call on the UN envoy and all parties that sponsor peace to have a serious call for peace because there should be a full and comprehensive dialogue and there should be a clear vision and agenda,” Al-Shami said.

“We are always with peace, we call for peace and we welcome any call for peace from the United Nations and others, but within the framework of a clear vision and a specific agenda,” he added.

He continued: “We are not against dialogue, we call for dialogue, and we believe that issues can only be resolved through dialogue and rapprochement among all parties.”

Ansaruallah Spokesman: Coalition prepares for new escalation in Hodeidah

Published

SANA’A – Head of the national negotiating delegation and Spokesman of Ansaruallah, Mohammed Abdulsalam, on Thursday said Saudi-led coalition is preparing for a new escalation round in Hodeidah city.

Abdulsalam considered that the coalition’s declaration of halting military operations is only for misleading to gain further time to prepare for new attacks on the city.

“We see only agreements between the aggression four states, which are the same parties that launch the aggression directly,” said Abdulsalam.

The spokesman confirmed the lack of serious political contacts to seek real solutions or real calm.

“In each round of the aggression rounds on Yemen, the escalation usually begins and decreases or fades without a declaration of truce,” he added.

SANA’A – Chairman of the Supreme Revolutionary Committee, Mohammed Ali al-Houthi appreciated all the international efforts for peace, stressing that Yemen welcomes and is ready for peace rather than a surrender.

“Yemen is reviewing the remarks made by the British Foreign Secretary and communicating with the UN envoy to Yemen,”  Mohammed Ali al-Houthi said in a thread of tweets on Tuesday, adding that “seriousness is required as the humanitarian situation of the Yemeni people worsens as a result of the US-backed Saudi-led coalition blockade and aggression on Yemen.”

Al-Houthi demanded that a representative of the Yemeni people should be present at the next Security Council meeting, stating that the voice rejecting the occupation and aggression has not yet been heard.

“Mohammed al-Houthi pointed out that the so-called “Yemeni representative” in the Security Council Chamber represents the side of the invaders and mercenaries, not the Yemeni people.”

He stressed that the Yemeni people have the right to explain their vision and that now is the time that the whole world must know who is calling for peace, and who is refusing it”.
