TEHRAN (Iran News) – Nowadays there are reports on the successive victories of Yemeni forces against the Saudi-led coalition forces and on new arms sales to Saudi Arabia to stop Yemenis but this is a useless effort because Yemenis are determined to expel foreign forces out of their lands whether occupiers and enemies use American-made weapons or spending their petrodollars.
The Yemeni army announced on Tuesday the liberation of two more districts in the strategic west-central province of Ma’rib from pro-Saudi militants, urging the mercenaries to surrender “before it is too late.”
At a presser, Brigadier General Yahya Saree, the armed forces’ spokesman, said the province’s al-Jubah and Jabal Murad Districts were liberated by the army and allied popular forces during the second phase of ‘Operation Spring of Victory.’
The Yemeni armed forces have vowed not to lay down their arms until the complete liberation of the whole country that has been subjected to a Saudi-led war since March 2015.
On Friday, Yemeni forces and allied fighters from Popular Committees also captured a key military base occupied by Saudi militants loyal to former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi in the country’s strategic oil-rich province of Ma’rib, and moved closer to the heart of energy reserves in the area.
Local military sources, speaking on condition of anonymity, said army troops and their allies launched intense attacks in the al-Jubah district of Ma’rib, and managed to seize Umm Reesh base following hours of fighting with Saudi mercenaries on Friday.
As the Yemeni armed forces advance and liberate more districts, some media outlets have reported the U.S. is to sell more weapons to Saudi Arabia.
On Thursday the United States approved a $650m sale of air-to-air missiles to Saudi Arabia, the Pentagon announced, in what would be the Biden administration’s first major weapons deal with the Persian Gulf kingdom.
In a statement on Thursday, the Pentagon said the U.S. State Department approved the sale to help Riyadh counter current and future threats.
“This proposed sale will support US foreign policy and national security of the United States by helping to improve the security of a friendly country that continues to be an important force for political and economic progress in the Middle East,” the Pentagon said.
It added that Massachusetts-based firm Raytheon would be the “principal contractor” for the sale of AIM-120C-7/C-8 Advanced Medium Range Air-to-Air Missiles (AMRAAM) and related equipment.
The sale comes months after President Joe Biden said he would end U.S. support for Saudi Arabia’s “offensive operations” in Yemen, including “relevant arms sales”.
The State Department’s bureau of political-military affairs noted in a series of tweets on Thursday that the missiles are “not used to engage ground targets”. As a candidate, Biden berated Saudi Arabia over the Yemen war and the killing of U.S-based journalist Jamal Khashoggi, calling the kingdom a “pariah”.
It seems Biden is not a man of words and he has changed his words due to the advancement of Yemeni Army and he has come to the rescue of the Saudis under the pressure of Zionists and Saudis despite his election campaign vows.
Yemen’s Ansarullah movement condemned the new U.S. arms deal with Saudi Arabia as a show of Washington’s continued support for Riyadh’s war-mongering.
A senior member of Yemen’s Supreme Political Council, Mohammed al-Houthi, has slammed the recent U.S. arms sale to Saudi Arabia, saying it confirms the contradiction in Biden’s administration when it comes to Yemen.
In a tweet, al-Houthi said the arms sales once again proved that the administration of U.S. President Biden had no real intention to stop the support for the Saudi-led war on Yemen.
Observers say Biden’s promises to stop the war on Yemen have been nothing but lies to gain more votes in the elections. They say the new U.S. missiles sold to Riyadh will be used to bomb Yemenis in fighter jets such as F-15, and not as defensive weapons, contrary to what Washington claims.
Saudi Arabia, with Washington’s support, launched a deadly war on Yemen in March 2015. Over the years, the kingdom has used internationally-prohibited weapons, including the US cluster bombs, to target residential areas, according to the Cluster Munition Monitor.
But Yemenis have proved that they can overcome problems and defeat enemies with empty hands but with strong determination. Their recent victories have angered Saudis in a way that Saudis have started a dispute with Lebanon to stop Hizbullah from its support to Ansarullah and Yemen Army, and the U.S. Administration has been forced to arm Saudis with new weapons but they have forgotten that strong determination is the best weapon for defeating enemies as the Americans themselves have witnessed in Iraq and Afghanistan, and soon Saudi-led coalition forces will experience such a humiliating defeat in Yemen.
Resistance Front and Islamic Movement in the world is now determined to fight for its right against any ill-wisher either it is the U.S, Zionists, European or any other country as the victory approaches.
