In the last 4 days, the Saudi-led Coalition of Arab countries that are attempting to reinstall the exiled Yemeni president’s rule have reportedly killed 236 civilians and wounded over 400 others inside the cities of Saada and Sanaa, while they continue to blame the Yemeni Army and popular committees for increased violence plaguing the country.

Of the 236 fatalities from the Saudi-led Coalition airstrikes, 91 of those civilians were reportedly killed inside the historical city of Saada in the last 48 hours, marking a very gory start to this week in Yemen.

Recently, a report from the United Nations has surfaced regarding the death toll in Yemen: the statistics provided in the report revealed that over 4,000 civilians have been killed by the Saudi-led Coalition airstrikes, with more than half of the aforementioned number being comprised of women and children.

The report further conveyed the statistics behind the bloodshed: 73 percent of the victims in Yemen were killed by the Saudi-led Coalition’s airstrikes, while the remaining 17 percent was blamed on the Yemeni Army and popular committees.

However, despite the death toll, the Yemeni Army and popular committees have remained undeterred, as they have captured a significant portion of the Jizan Region of Saudi Arabia.

On Tuesday morning, the exiled Yemeni president – ‘Abd-Rubbah Mansour Hadi – allegedly entered his hometown of Aden for a short period time before he was transported back to Saudi Arabia.

The irony is that they have given these Saudi parasites the chairmanship of United Nations Human Rights organization. The whole structure is corrupt….and money orientated.

Dear Father in Heaven, You see this cruel, outrageous and totally illegal slaughtering of Yemenis by the Saudis and their allies. Move powerfully to stop it. Do whatever it takes to the Saudi and these other govts and their militaries to stop this. Give great protection, fighting effectiveness and strategies to the Yemenis to help them totally crush these aggressors. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
