Below are some precise details that reflect Saudi hatred toward Yemenis.

The cost to rent 2 battleships is $300 million dollars per day. The battleships, as well as related accessories including 6,000 soldiers and 450 warplanes and their equipment, weapons, long-range missiles and 6 frigates, will be cost $54 billion within 6 months.

The cost of 2 military satellites per hour is $1 million; at that rate, the costs of the satellites will be $48 million per day. That is $1 billion and 800 million dollars a month. Over 6 months it will become $8 billion and 640 million dollars. According to reports and satellite images, each satellite costs $5 million per day. Here we have two satellites which cost $10 million per day and $300 million per month.
