The Saudi Royal Family and their political counterparts have tried their best to defeat the Yemeni civilians opposed to the exiled president, ‘Abd-Rubbah Mansour Hadi; however, this has proven to be far more costly than they originally anticipated.
According to the the Saudi whistleblower known as “@Mujtahidd”, the Saudi Royal Family has spent upwards around 200 billion Riyals ($75 billion USD) on military equipment, ammunition, and personnel in a span of 6 months.
In addition to the high bill they are racking up, the Saudi Royal Army has suffered over 6,500 casualties during this war in Yemen, including 2,000 soldiers killed-in-action (KIA) and another 4,500 others wounded while combatting the Yemeni Army’s Republican Guard and the Houthis.
To add insult to injury, the Saudi Royal Family has watched the southern part of their country being invaded by the Yemeni Army’s Republican Guard and the Houthis, while they watch from afar and demand more foreign mercenaries from Mauritania and Sudan help drive back the Yemeni resistance forces.
The situation in Yemen has gotten so bad for the Saudi Royal Family that they are now watching their forces and the Hadi loyalists lose ground to their former allies from the Yemeni Al-Qaeda group “Ansar Al-Sharia” and their counterparts from the self-proclaimed “Islamic State” (IS).
