Commander: Saudi Arabia Sending Covert Arms Cargos to Terrorists in Yemen
Saudi Arabia is sending weapons to terrorists in Yemen under the guise of humanitarian and relief aids, a senior Yemeni commander disclosed on Monday.
“The Yemeni army and Ansarullah fighters confiscated a large amount of bomb-making materials and components and also special military uniforms that were sent to Yemen in trucks carrying humanitarian aids to that country,” Brigadier-General Ahmad Sabih al-Kamel told FNA today.
He noted that the Yemeni army in cooperation with Ansarullah fighters have discovered a factory in the Southern Yemeni province of Aden where military hardware were manufactured, and said, “All those running the factory were Saudi nationals and worked with to the terrorists.”
Brigadier-General Sabih al-Kamel also disclosed that Saudi Arabia had sought to bribe him with a huge sum of money, $274 million.
The Ansarullah fighters and the army troops have made major advances in their fight against the terrorists across Yemen.
The clashes between the Ansarullah fighters and the Saudi-backed al-Qaeda terrorists as well as the pro-Hadi militias continue in the Southern parts of the country as Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 26 days now to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 2,700 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.
Hadi stepped down in January and refused to reconsider the decision despite calls by Ansarullah revolutionaries of the Houthi movement.
Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi warplanes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
Five Persian Gulf States — Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Bahrain, Qatar and Kuwait — and Egypt that are also assisted by Israel and backed by the US declared war on Yemen in a joint statement issued on March 26.
