Text : According to Yemeni media, Houthi Ansarullah forces fired a ballistic missile at the headquarters of the 3rd Military Region in the capital of the Ma rib Governorate. Dozens of Saudi-backed mercenaries were killed and injured following the attack. The Ansarullah forces have repeatedly targeted these types of parades in Yemen, which have often resulted in a significant number of casualties within the ranks of the Saudi-led coalition mercenaries. Saudi Arabia and a number of its regional allies launched a devastating war on Yemen in March 2015 in an attempt to subdue an uprising that toppled a regime friendly to Riyadh. The US-based Armed Conflict Location and Event Data Project (ACLED), a nonprofit conflict-research organization, estimates that the war has claimed more than 100,000 lives over the past five years. More than half of Yemen s hospitals and clinics have been destroyed or closed during the war by the Saudi-led coalition, which is supported militarily by the UK, the US and other Western countries.
