Riyadh aid to US-coalition in Syria indicating their failure

Tehran, Aug 18, IRNA - Head of Yemen’s Supreme Revolutionary Committee referred to Saudis' $100m aid to the so-called anti-Daesh coalition led by the US to implement operations in Syria and Iraq as indication of defeat.

According to Arab media, Mohammad Ali Al-Houthi said on Saturday that Saudi Arabia financial aid to US-coalition indicates confrontation against Iran, reinstating destructive ideology in Syria and Yemen and also supporting terrorists.

This is while Saudi Arabia claimed that the aid is for implementing important projects in the health, electricity, water, education, road, transportation and earthworks projects in the city of Raqqa.

We are not for war and are after establishing peace in Syria and the region, Al-Houthi added.

The Saudi Arabia financial aid remind us of their crimes, he noted.

Earlier an official with Yemen Defense Ministry announced that Saudi Arabia has used US-made bombs to attack Yemeni children in Dahyan.

According to Russian media 'RT Arabic', the Ansarallah official said on the condition of anonymity that the bomb was a MK82 which had earlier been used in Saudis strikes on a wedding party in Saada Province, far northern Yemen. The attacks took place on April 23, after several defeats of the Saudi coalition in Al Hudaydah Front. At least 11 people were killed when the Saudi coalition war planes bombarded the wedding party in Al Dhaher District.

Meanwhile US media 'CNN' announced that 'the bomb is very similar to the one that wreaked devastation in an attack on a funeral hall in Yemen in October 2016 in which 155 people were killed and hundreds more wounded. The Saudi coalition blamed 'incorrect information' for that strike, admitted it was a mistake and took responsibility.'

Saudi Arabia and its regional allies attacked Yemen in March 2015 to bring back to power the deposed president of Yemen Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi. Since then, the invaders have committed horrible war crimes against Yemeni civilians.
