Footage shows American made weapons arriving in war-ravaged Yemen secretly as the country suffers from the ongoing Saudi aggression.
Released by CNN on Wednesday, the video purportedly shows US-made Oshkosh armored vehicles in the early morning darkness at the Yemeni port of Aden.
The US heavy weaponry and reinforcement were meant to support Saudi Arabia and its allies in their aggression against the impoverished country.
The US support for the Saudi war on Yemen has been a controversial issue in US politics with some American lawmakers blaming President Donald Trump’s administration for its Saudiphillia.
In his maiden state visit, Trump went to Saudi Arabia, where he allegedly signed a massive $110 billion arms deal with the oil-rich kingdom.
The Saudi-led war has so far killed thousands of Yemeni people while destroying the impoverished country’s infrastructure. It has also led to widespread food shortages and deadly cholera breakouts.
Trump, however, has refused to throw away his profitable deal with Riyadh arguing that doing so would only push the staunch Middle East ally towards Russia.
Major US military contractors, including Lockheed Martin Corp and Raytheon Co, are among the beneficiaries of Washington’s cozy ties with Riyadh and would suffer huge losses if contracts with Saudi Arabia are suspended.
