Sudan is not informing the families of its fallen soldiers that they have been killed in battle in Yemen, the head of the Houthis said yesterday.

In a post on Twitter, Mohammed Ali Al-Houthi said: “The leadership of Sudan’s mercenaries in Yemen is not informing the families of those who had participated in the aggression about dead soldiers and officers, while military regulations  provide that in case the martyrdom of one of its members was confirmed then his family should be notified within an hour, and the financial procedures should be carried out immediately . This confirms deliberate neglect.”

“Or does the Sudanese regime benefit from covering the foreign currency deficit through these funds before paying the families of those who were killed while participating in the aggression? Or is it a kind of circumvention by the military commanders?” he asked in another tweet.

“The Sudanese regime should respect its militias and soldiers, abide by the laws it has passed, and inform the families of its mercenaries who were killed in Yemen, according with the military regulations. It is the least thing they can do to return the favour for those who were pushed into Yemen’s holocaust. “

Sudan has been providing ground troops to support a Saudi-led coalition’s assault on the Middle East’s poorest country. The Kingdom entered the Yemen civil war in 2015 at the behest of the internationally backed President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi who was forced in to exile after the Houthis took control of the country’s capital, Sanaa, and the government institutions within it.
