Mohammed al-Houthi confirms that Yemen will fight on until victory
SANA’A – The Head of the Supreme Revolutionary Committee, Mohammed Ali al-Houthi, has chanted the national anthem of the Republic of Yemen in the context of challenging the alliance led by Saudi Arabia and the UAE and confirming the continued steadfastness of Yemen.
On Tuesday, Mohammed Ali al-Houthi confirmed that Yemenis insist on achieving freedom and getting rid of external domination, whatever the price and sacrifices they have made for four years and will continue to do.
“The Yemeni people are more determined to continue their steadfastness, and they are more solid and strong with their tribes and honorable sons,” chairman Mohamed al-Houthi wrote on social media.
Al-Houthi continued: “The Republic of Yemen has chanted “No foreigner shall ever hold dominion over Yemen” for four years. Yemenis are irrigating our soil with their precious blood in defense of our beloved homeland. They will not accept retreat or break, and will go on until they see the banner of victory raised, which God willing will be soon.”
Since March 26, 2015, Saudi Arabia and the UAE have continued to lead an international war against Yemen, claiming to restore the so-called “legitimate government” headed by the exiled former President Hadi. Hadi himself has been living in luxury in Saudi Arabia for most of the time since fleeing the country after the September 21 Revolution in 2014.
Mohamed Ali al-Houthi has commented on the statement by UN humanitarian coordinator Lize Grande regarding the massacre of Kusher district of Hajjah province, in which she said “it is a strike that led to civilian casualties”. Al-Houthi condemned the message as not convincing.
In another tweet, he attached a video documenting the declaration of the Coalition to commit the massacre.
Al-Houthi demanded “the formation of a committee to investigate Saudi-led coalition war crimes.”
He also stated he holds the United Nations responsible for “covering up the crimes of the US-backed Saudi-led aggression.”
The United Nations has condemned the killing and wounding of scores of civilians in Hajjah provinces, however, it did not call out the Saudi perpetrators.
The death toll from Sunday’s Saudi-led coalition airstrikes on civilians in Kusher district of Hajjah province has risen to 43, Health Ministry spokesman Yusif al-Hadri said in a statement on Monday, adding that the number of dead is expected to increase because of serious injuries.
