Thousands of people rallied in central Sana’a on Tuesday to mark the fourth anniversary of the onset of the Saudi-led war in Yemen.

Protesters held pictures of those killed in the conflict. One of the demonstrators said: “This year will be the year of victory and the year of legendary steadfastness.”

The Saudi-led war in Yemen was launched in 2015 as an attempt to crush the Houthi movement in the region and reinstate former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi.

The war has killed tens of thousands of people and left the country’s economy in tatters. According to recent UN reports, almost 80 percent of the Yemeni population – some 24 million people – are in need of assistance and protection, with millions facing the plight of starvation.

I doubt there will be a victory in 2019 and if it happens, surely not on the Houthi side : their illegitimate regime’s troop are surrounded and slowly but surely bled from all sides while population faces terrible hardship.

Unfortunately for you and the Fake news AMN, the saudi coalition will never be able to securise all Yemen as the Syrian army did with FSA. Houthis are not FSA/Nosra they are millions across Yemen and millions others supporting them so it is a 100 % mission impossible, morever the Saudi Coalition is 100 % relying on southern separatists supported by the EAU, sooner or later they will split to make their state to the south and then Houthis will be on offensive. Already 5 years and the Saudi coalition is not even able to securise their borders !!!
