SANA’A, Yemen – The Houthi resistance movement has sent a greetings to Fort Russ News and their readership for supporting Yemen’s struggle against Saudi aggression.
The Yemeni war is only sporadically covered by mainstream and alternative media alike, however, Fort Russ News has always made it a priority to cover the Saudi aggression against the Arab world’s most impoverished state.
Despite Saudi Arabia having the world’s third largest military expenditure annually, it has struggled to defeat the Houthi resistance movement and re-instate Saudi puppet Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi back to the presidency.
Although he still remains mostly internationally recognized as Yemen’s president, he is holed up in the country’s second city, Aden.
Meanwhile, the Houthi-led Ansarullah resistance movement are in control of Sana’a, Yemen’s capital city.
Saudi Arabia intervened in Yemen in March 2015 by leading an air coalition that has killed thousands of civilians. Saudi-led air raids often target schools, hospital, funeral processions, weddings and other civilian aspects of life and vital infrastructure.
Nearly 20,000 people have been killed in Yemen since March 2015, with the Saudi coalition unable to dislodge the resistance movement from power despite controlling the skies and having an enormous military expenditure.
The Houthis are a tribe in northern Yemen on the border with Saudi Arabia and despite limited arms, and fighters often filmed barefoot and with light arms, they have successfully contained Saudi ground forces and often raid inside Saudi Arabia itself, demonstrating that when fighting a war of resistance and anti-imperialism, determination wins battles and not superior weaponry in the hands of a disillusioned and unmotivated aggressor.
