Saudi Arabia’s KSRelief launches new job-creation projects in Yemen

  • KSRelief team visited farmers in Qalaat Al-Madiq, a town in the Hama governorate of Syria, to give instructions on the use of agricultural pesticides recently delivered to the area

JEDDAH: Projects aimed at creating and supporting jobs in Yemen were on Tuesday launched by the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSRelief).
The labor-intensive schemes for the Tarim area of Wadi Hadhramaut, will also target improving the infrastructure of the region.
The latest initiatives will provide short-term employment opportunities, and training for unskilled workers. Heads of households will also be given assistance to improve family living conditions.
Through its work to support the livelihoods of Yemenis, KSRelief hopes to help 3,750 people and more than 18,750 indirectly.
A KSRelief team also visited farmers in Qalaat Al-Madiq, a town in the Hama governorate of Syria, to give instructions on the use of agricultural pesticides recently delivered to the area.
So far 1,000 local families and displaced people with farming backgrounds have been given help to revitalize agricultural and livestock activities damaged by the war in Syria.

Coalition acts against Houthi drone capabilities in Yemen’s capital

  • The attacks are a continuation of previous strikes aimed at reducing Houthi capabilities

JEDDAH: The Arab coalition has began an operation to diminish the drone capabilities of the Houthi militia at a presidential palace camp in Yemen’s capital Sanaa, Saudi Arabia’s AlEkhbariya TV announced early Saturday.

Earlier this month, a Houthi workshop manufacturing unmanned drones and a launchpad were destoryed in a coalition strike.

The attacks are a continuation of previous strikes aimed at reducing Houthi capabilities, and counter their efforts at launching attacks against the Kingdom.

On Apr. 3, five people were injured, including a woman and a child, when two Houthi drones targeting civilian areas in Saudi Arabia were intercepted and destroyed.

In early March, Saudi Arabia’s Royal Air Defense Force again shot down a Houthi drone that was flying toward the Kingdom.
