A local monitoring group called “Yemen Fights Back” has released a statistical report that documents the death of 7,411 Yemeni civilians as a result of the aggressive war waged by the Saudi-led Coalition of Arab countries.

The report detailed the death of 4,373 men, 1,309 women, and 1,729 children from the dates of March 26th, 2015 – December 12th, 2015; meanwhile, another 13,846 men, women and children were reportedly wounded by the Saudi-led Coalition.

In addition to this high death toll, over 900,000 Yemeni civilians have been reportedly displaced and 319,957 homes destroyed.

On average, almost 29 people are killed every day because of this war waged by the rich Gulf countries and their loyal allies that are part of the Arab League.

The Saudi regime is attempting to reinstall the exiled Yemeni president, ‘Abd Rubbah Hadi Mansour, back into power; however, local militias and soldiers from the Yemeni Army’s Republican Guard have proven much tougher than they previously anticipated when they launched this war.

Currently, the Yemeni capital is fully under the control of the Houthis and the Yemeni Army’s Republican Guard – they have also entered the southern countryside of Saudi Arabia and seized a number of sites from the coalition forces.

Heartbreaking to hear of these large number of Yemeni deaths…but rejoicing at how the Yemenis are taking it to the Saudi maggots so effectively. May they take it to them all the way to Riyadh!
