DAMASCUS, SYRIA (1:15 A.M.) – On Tuesday evening, Houthi-led forces renewed their assault on the western port city of Mocha, inflicting casualties upon Saudi-backed forces.

According to Al-Masdar News field correspondent Naseh Shaker, one soldier of the United Arab Emirates and 8 soldiers of the Aden-based government were killed in clashes on the coast of Taiz province.

The UAE soldier was identified as Hassan Abdullah Mohammed Al-Bashr by state media and the United Arab Emirates Army. He was killed in the Zahari region, north of the Red Sea port of Mocha.

So far, 85 soldiers of the United Arab Emirates have been killed since the Saudi-led coalition launched its intervention in support of exiled President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi in March 2015.

The picture shown is sad since the PDRY (South Yemen) during its existence was a socialist state that did not bow down to the Saudis nor the Emiratis. I don’t think the founders of the PDRY would have personally approved of this

It was an error to unify the 2 Yemens for sure.
The best thing would be the Yemeni commie party to rise again.

The only way that could happen would be if Hirak (South Yemen movement) was Communist, otherwise forget it. No point in doing it when the Saudis and UAE are involved in this.
