SANA’A: West Coastguard Brigades warned the US-Saudi forces against continued targeting of the city of Ad-Durayhimi in Al-Hodeidah province. Brigadier-General Abdullah Al-Wazir said in a statement to the Yemeni News Agency (Saba) that the US-Saudi forces and their mercenaries continue to siege the city of Ad-Durayhimi and prevent the entry of food and medicine.
He emphasized the readiness of the Coastguard Brigades to respond to the aggression, its violations and crimes, which have increased dramatically during the past days. “The response to these crimes will be painful. They will regret their arrogance and the crimes they committed against the citizens of Ad-Durayhimi who live in disastrous conditions,” he warned.
He pointed out that the aggression forces did not abide by any agreements and did not allow food and medicine aid to enter the city, which is a crime of genocide for its children. He concluded his statement by warning the US-Saudi forces that the Coastguard Brigades will not stand idly by while the Saudi-led aggression continues its crimes and violations against citizens.
It is noteworthy that the city of Ad-Durayhimi has been besieged by the forces of aggression for more than a year, and its residents suffer from tragic humanitarian conditions due to the denial of food and medicine, in addition targeting of various weapons. Civil society organizations and various official and popular activities have demanded the lifting of the siege on Ad-Durayhimi and considered it a crime of genocide against its residents.
Meanwhile, the group of prominent international and regional experts on Yemen in its latest report accused the coalition of adopting the blockade as a collective punishment against the civilians in Ad-Durayhimi.
