“In the first days of Eid Al-Fitr, intensive raids by the forces of the Saudi-American aggression affected several provinces and committed a massacre in Maran, Saada.”
He added that “insisting on perpetuating brutality and bloodyness and imposing a blockade on Yemen will not bring any aggression to the aggressors.”
A spokesman for the Yemeni armed forces loyal to “Ansar Allah”, Brigadier Yahya Sari, earlier today accused the Arab coalition of launching more than 48 raids on the governorates of Al-Jawf, Marib, Hajjah, and Saada.
Brigadier-General Fast, that “the continued escalation of the air will have serious consequences for the forces of aggression (the coalition), and it must bear the consequences of that.”
Today, the Al-Masirah channel, speaking for “Ansar Allah,” announced that 2 people were killed and 3 others wounded by a raid on the Arab Coalition on the main road in Maran district, Haidan district, southwest of Saada.
