On May 20,  the Saudi-led coalition and its proxies captured the strategic region of al-Atifyn in the Kitaf wa al-Boqe’e district of the northern Yemeni province of Saada, according to the UAE based al-Arabiya TV.

    Nobody want to fight for KSA (Saudis) therefore, they using Sudanis to fight for them. Similarly nobody want to fight for US, UK, France and for Zionists that is why they use atheists to fight for them, for which there is each day conscription in Middle east.

      Agreed but the payoff to Sudan was getting removed from the U.S. sanctions list. If they back out they might get put back on it. This is part of our evil, the coalition of the coerced. Even Sudan might back out were it not for the U.S.

    I support Houthis army of Yemen, Taliban forces of Afghanistan and IRGC forces of Iran.
    I support Hezbollah army forces of Lebanon, PMU army forces of Iraq,
    I support Hamas army forces of Palestine, SAA forces of Syria and LNA forces of Libya.

    These all heroes are united and together fighting voluntarily for their lands and sovereignty against child butchers terrorists KSA(Saudis), US, UK, France and against their proxies terrorists.

    The Yemeni sources are from oppositions, not from Houthis side and have no credibility. Fake news propaganda.
