A top commander loyal to the Saudi-led coalition described the Saudi-backed groups loyal to exiled former president Hadi’s authority as “thieves.”
Commander Awaidhan Salem al-Gohi said that the administration of Hadi has continued to loot the wealth from the Yemeni oil facilities, and called for using the income instead to build hospitals.
Al-Gohi held the officials of the province responsible for devastating the basic services and depriving the residents of the province of their most basic rights.
The commander made the remarks during his speech the consultative meeting held on Sunday in Mukalla city, where he met with a number of local and military leaders.
This marks one of the many occasions in which Saudi-backed military and mercenary leaders end up openly criticising the horrible effects of the Saudi-imposed war on Yemen
