Unprotected from Houthi missiles, Yemen's IDPs' only hope is in their launch failure

As Fatehi Qayed scrolled down through a news page on his mobile phone in a Marib street enjoying a good internet connectivity moment on Saturday dawn, his younger brother Abdullah kept bouncing along and repeating, "Hurray, thank God, Hurray." Fatehi had just read, in a happy tone, that "the Houthi militia have tried to fire a ballistic missile on Marib city but the launch failed and the missile exploded at the launch site."

 

The 14-year-old Abdullah is deliberately kept out of home by his parents and brother to allow his parents to sleep. "For when he sleeps at night at the same time with my parents, he keeps disrupting their sleep by dreaming and screaming," says Fatehi. "It all started since he saw dead bodies under the rubble of a house hit by a Houthi ballistic missile here in Arowdha neighborhood" last February.

The internally families of Fatehi and his neighbors, Sayf Ahmadi and Osamah Marwan, all rejoiced the news that popped up on Barakesh News Alert on facebook

Within minutes, the post got 200 likes.

The Shia extremists in Habab, north of Sana'a, wanted to fire the ballistic missile at around midnight on the government-held Marib, a small city which continually receives such missiles and suffers massacres among its internally displaced population at the hands of the Iran-backed and UN-spoiled Shia theocratic organization.

"As nothing shields us, our only hope is that the missiles will fail in their launch moment," says Sayf.

"It is our prayers in mosques.  'Let their bullets come back to their chests'," adds Osamah. "No UN cares, no international media care gives a damn care since it is Houthis who fire the missiles, who have the upper hand. You know, I know, everyone knows."

 

The Shia extremists in Habab, north of Sana'a, wanted to fire the ballistic missile at around midnight on the government-held Marib, a small city and a scene of continual massacres by ballistic missiles at the hands of the UN-spoiled Shia theocratic organization. "As nothing shields us, our only hope is that the missiles will fail in their launch moment," says Sayf.

"Our prayers, 'Let their bullets come back to their chests' won't go in vain," says Osamah. "The UN and the world don't give a damn about us. They  have been seeing Houthi rockets rain down on us for years and doing nothing. The international media would care only if the government is the party who has and uses ballistic missiles, but since it is Shia extremists who fire them,  who have the upper hand, that is something they favor. You know, I know, everyone knows this fact."

 

"In Shaa Allah (God willing) Houthis are failed and all their missiles will fail to launch and explode in their face," says Ruqiya Hatem, 48 year old woman, who joined the conversation upon hearing the news. "We have nothing to repel their missiles other than to pray for their failure."
