Yemen’s Tochka Attack Kills Blackwater Commander, Saudi Mercenaries

The Yemeni military backed by fighters of the Ansarullah resistance movement launched overnight Saturday a Tochka ballistic missile on the al-And military base in the southern Yemeni province, a Yemeni military source reported.

TochkaThe huge attack killed Colonel Nicholas Petros, the new commander of the infamous US security firm, Blackwater, and at least 200 mercenaries of Saudi Arabia were killed or injured in Lahij Province.

Apache helicopters, Typhoon fighter jets and armories belonging to the mercenaries were destroyed in the missile strike.

Blackwater has had to change its name several times due to its ill fame around the world. It is now known as the Academi. The company, which went by the alias Xe Services before its current name, is one of the most notorious private security firms in the world for killing scores of civilians in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Yemen.

Yemen has been since March 26 under brutal aggression by Saudi-led coalition.

Riyadh launched the attack on Yemen in a bid to restore power to fugitive president Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi who is a close ally to Saudi Arabia.

However, Yemeni army, backed by the committees has been responding to the aggression by targeting several Saudi border military posts and cleansing several areas across the country, especially the country’s south, from Hadi and al-Qaeda-linked militias.

As a South African, I have regrettably only taken account of USA destabilization of the world peace and
kept opinions to myself. I think it best that more people around the world comment against this murder of
innocents for the sake of economic gain. It is time that more people use whatever media at their disposal
to expose the USA murderous deeds and propaganda. If one only watches CNN or BBC, it looks like the USA
is alone in its fight against world terror. But also watching RT, Almanar and a few other non biased
media who report factually, it exposes the USA for the murderers they are.
