TEHRAN (Iran News) – A Houthi Ansarullah movement official lashed out at Saudi Arabia for violating a ceasefire and continuing with military aggression against Yemen, warning the invaders to brace themselves for a response in the coming days.
In an interview with Al Mayadden, Mohamed al-Bukhaiti, a member of the political bureau of Ansarullah, threatened that the Yemeni forces would respond to the unrelenting Saudi-led military attacks and the kingdom’s violation of a ceasefire within the next few days.
He warned that an attack on Saudi Arabia’s oil facilities would be a justifiable response to the Saudi acts of aggression against Yemenis.
Denouncing the continued attacks from the Saudi-led military coalition on Hudaydah, Bukhaiti said the aggressors will be the biggest loser if they continue to aggravate the tensions and clashes in the Yemeni port city.
He further stressed that any initiative that fails to result in a complete end to the war against Yemen would be a deficient plan.
The damages caused by the blockade imposed on Yemen are more extensive than the losses inflicted by the military attacks, the Ansarullah official said, warning that any initiative for the cessation of hostilities without a call for the removal of blockade would in fact legitimize the blockade.
In remarks on Saturday, Spokesman for Yemen’s Houthi Ansarullah movement Abdul-Salam described a two-week ceasefire that has been recently announced by the Saudi-led coalition as just another ploy aimed at covering up the Riyadh regime’s crimes against Yemenis.
Saudi Arabia and a number of its regional allies launched the devastating war on Yemen in March 2015 in order to bring the country’s former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi back to power and crush Ansarullah.
The US-based Armed Conflict Location and Event Data Project (ACLED), a nonprofit conflict-research organization, estimates that the war has claimed more than 100,000 lives over the past five years.
