Social Media:

  1. A viral hashtag now goes “ President Hadi’s silence led to Yemen’s losing of Socotra”.

 Facebook post by Abdullah Maresh: “Many western media outlets continue to report on Yemen without addressing the Houthi coup as the initial cause of the conflict and humanitarian crisis. And worse than that is reflecting Houthi-sided points of view. A recent report by the CNN which goes under the title 'The hardest part is when we lose a child' is a typical example. The report, mostly prepared in Houthi-held north and under the influence of Houthis, portrays death in Yemen as mostly the result of Arab Coalition airstrikes in disregard of the fact that ground fighting which is caused by Houthi offensive attacks against the defensive weak army consumes and causes most casualties. The report quoted a doctor in a [Houthi-controlled] north Yemen hospital, Al-Ashawal, as saying: "Those who aren't killed by the airstrikes or this war? They will die from shortages in medical supplies.”!

Another whopper the report presented to bolster the Houthi narrative is: “A Saudi-led coalition, in which the UAE is a key partner, has waged a campaign against the Houthis for the past five years, destroying much of the Houthi-controlled areas with the US' backing.” What a big lie! Sana’a, Amran, Ibb and other Houthi-held cities are the only safe places left intact by the devastating war. The Arab warplanes hit only military sites in barracks and unpopulated mountains. Buildings and infrastructure in the pro-government Taiz city in the west are largely damaged, but the report doesn’t say that. Pro-government Marib in the east is the one Yemeni city you most don’t want to live in. The city struggles all year long to repel Houthi unrelenting advance attempts and struggles as well to sleep quietly under continual Houthi missiles fired into the heart of the small city overpopulated by three million IDPs – who have escaped the Shia extremist Houthis.”
