TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The depth of a massive destruction done on the Yemeni city as a result of the savage US-backed Saudi onslaught was revealed on Saturday, by a source in the local administration of the border town of Haradh in Hajjah province.
Since the beginning of the Saudi invasion in 2015, more than 15,000 shells, bombs, and missiles have been dropped on Haradh's neighborhoods and facilities, according to the Almasirah's source.
Residents of Haradh district had been fully moved to a variety of camps for displaced as well as neighboring areas, the source explained, adding that more than 70 establishments in Haradh have been entirely destroyed, the most of which are hotels and rest houses.
He went on to say that out of a total of 63 schools, 50 were entirely demolished, the remainder were partially damaged, leaving thousands of pupils deprived of an education.
He revealed that the Saudi aggression's airplanes and artillery have entirely destroyed Haradh's ancient city, as well as 85 percent of the city's dwellings in general, and that houses, shops, private hospitals, roads, and everything else related to life were all targeted.
According to the source, engineers have recommend that the cities of Haradh and Midi should first be rid of the destroyed structures before rebuilding them.
Saudi Arabia, backed by the US and regional allies, launched the devastating war on Yemen in March 2015, with the goal of bringing the government of former Yemeni president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi back to power and crushing the popular Ansarullah resistance movement.
Yemeni armed forces and allied Popular Committees have, however, gone from strength to strength against the Saudi-led invaders, and left Riyadh and its allies bogged down in the country.
The Saudi war has left hundreds of thousands of Yemenis dead, and displaced millions more. The war has also destroyed Yemen's infrastructure and spread famine and infectious diseases across the Arab country.
