Yemeni people continue offering sacrifices in their conflict against the Houthi militias, and this colonel has lost four of his sons in the wake of this war.

Colonel Mefreh Buhaibeh, who has participated in several liberation battles to free regions from militia control, has lost four of his sons, who fought among the first ranks of the Yemeni army.

His last loss was his son Waleed, who gained martyrdom during clashes in Al-Baydaa province.

The heartbroken father, tells Al Arabiya English: “[Waleed] is my fourth son to receive martyrdom in the fields of pride and dignity in defense of the homeland, against the Houthis, after a fierce battle between us and the Houthis.”

“This is not the first time that I lose one of my children in battles against the Houthis. I have four martyrs: the first one was martyred during clashes in the Beihan front, and two were martyred in Marib, and what motivates us behind these sacrifices is the intervention of Houthi in religion. We respect any intellectual difference, but not interference and defamation of religion.”

"This militia has divided the Yemeni body, we never used to interfere in each other’s affairs and we’d pray together, until the Houthis came and destroyed the tolerance among us.”
