Accordingly, the coalition forces attacked the positions of the army forces and popular committees and the houses of Yemeni citizens in the provinces of Al Hudaydah, Ta’iz, Ma’rib, Hajjah, Saada, Jizan, Dhale, and Najran with heavy artillery, rocket, and mortar shells.

Saudi Arabia, with the support of the United States, the UAE, and several other countries, launched a military invasion of Yemen in March 2015, putting a land, sea, and air siege on the impoverished country.

The military aggression has also destroyed more than 85 percent of Yemen’s infrastructure, leaving the country severely short of food and medicine.
