Sayyid al-Houthi: Attacks on Yemen increased after US “call to ceasefire”
SANA’A – Sayyid Abdul-Malik al-Houthi, the Leader of the Yemeni Revolution, has stated that the extent of the Saudi-led invasion’s aggression against Yemen and its people has only increased after the so-called call for a ceasefire that was voiced by the United States of America last week.
In a live televised speech from Sana’a in which the Leader addressed the people of Yemen, Sayyid al-Houthi noted that the Saudis were making preparations for larger attacks in the future, despite the official US call for a ceasefire. Condemning the US role in the war against Yemen, he reminded the people that the Saudi-led invasion has always been co-planned, monitored and supported by the United States itself.
“The US role in the military operations against our nation is pivotal. All fiendish plots against Yemen are hatched by the US, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Traitors just struggle to carry them out on the ground. Washington is speaking of peace at the same time that it is directing the Yemen war. Traitors are operating under the auspices of Saudi Arabia and the UAE, and executing their orders,” the Ansarullah chairman pointed out.
“The United States has managed to reap tremendous financial gains, including arms deals, from the Saudi-led aggression on Yemen. Washington is supporting the Riyadh regime to be able to stand on its feet. It is also managing the violent and criminal role of Saudi Arabia. The recent uptick in attacks on Yemen comes as a number of (Persian) Gulf littoral states, notably Saudi Arabia and the UAE, are warming their relations with the Zionist regime,” he continued, referring to the recent row of high-level diplomatic meetings between Zionist representatives from the Israeli regime and several of the Gulf monarchies.
“No matter what ammunition and military hardware the enemies might have at their disposal, we should reserve any worries. No matter what meaningless and baseless remarks they would make, they have no right and legitimacy to attack Yemen as an independent and sovereign country.
Saudi Arabia and the UAE have not launched the war on Yemen for the sake of any specific Yemeni group. They view their loyal Yemeni groups as pawns to attain their objectives. Saudi Arabia has suffered substantial losses in its border regions. It has paid huge sums of money to scores of Yemenis in a bid to use them as cannon fodder. Emiratis are also using their Yemeni mercenaries as human shields. Emirati officers are taking orders from their American, Israeli and British masters,” Sayyid Abdul-Malik al-Houthi spoke.
Sayyid al-Houthi also used his speech to praise the efforts of the Yemeni Armed Forces and the Popular Committees in thwarting all enemy plots to capture any terrain in the Sana’a and Hodeidah provinces. The Ansarullah leader added that Yemenis are resisting foreign aggression, and that they are in their right to defend themselves as well as the freedom of independence of Yemen.
In conclusion, Sayyid Abdul-Malik al-Houthi called for Yemeni citizens to continue to mobilise on the battlefields in order to defend their country, stating “Aggressors will dominate us if we sit idle and do nothing. Our desire for freedom prevents us from bowing down to criminals.”
