“Saudis” bomb refugee camp in Yemen, killing scores

Crescent International

True to form, the "Saudis" can only kill civilians as they have been doing in Yemen over the past several days. In their latest assault, at least 45 people were killed at al-Mazrak refugee camp in north west Yemen. If the fighting drags, there is every likelihood that the "Saudi" regime itself will collapse.

Having failed to subdue the revolutionary forces that have driven the “Saudi” puppet Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi scurrying out of Yemen, the Najdi Bedouins have resorted to bombing Yemeni refugee camps. In the latest attack, more than 40 people were killed at al Mazrak refugee camp in northwest Yemen today (March 30), according to aid workers. Marco Pablo, the aid agency Medecins Sans Frontieres’ (MSF) Middle East Program manager confirmed that deaths at the refugee camp were caused by a “Saudi air strike.”

Yemeni State media also reported Saudi planes were responsible for the latest outrage. Since launching air strikes in the early hours of March 26 (Yemeni time) hundreds of civilians have been killed. By fleeing to “Saudi” Arabia, Hadi, the fugitive from justice, has confirmed he is a “Saudi” puppet and has little or no support inside the country.

Far from subduing the Houthi revolutionary forces that are spearheading the campaign to rid the country of corruption, the Najdi Bedouins’ air strikes have intensified hatred for the “Saudis.” At the same time, the Houthis’ stock has gone up because they are seen as defending Yemen’s sovereignty and territorial integrity. On Monday evening “Saudi” planes again bombed Sana‘a, the Yemeni capital, forcing civilians to flee their homes.

Meanwhile, in an act of defiance, Houthis and their supporters have held rallies denouncing “Saudi” air strikes and the killing of innocent civilians. Despite the air strikes, Houthi fighters have made further gains in the south pushing remnants of the ousted president’s forces. Houthis shelled the town of Daleh and also captured a port east of Aden. The revolutionary forces also gained ground in the north east suburbs of Aden. There were reports that Egyptian naval vessels are backing “Saudi” gunboats in blockading Yemen’s ports ostensibly to prevent the Houthis from getting weapons.

Amid continued illegal bombing of Yemen by “Saudi” forces, there have been calls for a truce and a political solution to the problem. If the war drags on, this may lead to the collapse of the “Saudi” regime itself, according to informed observers.
