IRGC Clear Warning to Saudi Arabia for Aggression in Yemen
Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari condemned the Saudi regime for killing hundreds of innocent people in Yemen, saying that.
“Saudi Arabia has shamelessly and rudely violated all the Islamic principles and attacked a Muslim country, a country which is opposed to hegemonic system and seeks independence,” Major General Jafari said in a speech here in Tehran on Monday.
He also emphasized that the “treacherous” Saudis are moving in line with the policies of the Zionist regime of Israel.
The top commander further pointed to the latest developments in Yemen, saying that it would be a very important and decisive event that the people can govern their own country.
He went on to say that God willing, the next wave of similar developments will lead to the collapse of the Saudi regime.
“Al Saudi (ruling family) is on the brink of collapse and regional and international analysts have already talked about it (the collapse). We are hopeful it will happen,” Major General Jafari said.
Elsewhere in his remarks, the commander urged the Iranian officials to set aside their reservations about Saudi Arabia and underlined that by invading Yemen, Riyadh has breached all those reservations.
On March 26, Saudi Arabia and some of its Arab allies began to militarily interfere in Yemen’s internal affairs by launching deadly air strikes against the Houthi Ansarullah movement in an attempt to restore power to the fugitive former President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.
The Saudi-led coalition announced on April 21 that its military operation “Decisive Storm” has ended, but hours later, air strikes and ground fighting resumed.
According to the spokesman of the Yemeni Army, the Saudi-led war on the Arab country has killed 2,051 people, most of them civilians.
Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari comments come after deputy foreign minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian said on Sunday that Saudi Arabia’s decision to prevent Iran from delivering humanitarian aid to Yemen “would not be left unanswered.”
On April 9, Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei too compared Saudi Arabia to Israel, AFP reports.
“What the Saudi government is doing in Yemen resembles exactly what the Zionist regime did in Gaza. This is a massacre, a genocide,” supreme leader said.
“Certainly, the Saudis will suffer damage,” supreme leader warned.
Saudi-led bombing raids continued Sunday, hitting Sanaa and positions in the main southern city of Aden, military sources and witnesses said.
Despite Riyadh’s announcement on Tuesday that it was halting the bombing campaign, the Saudi warplanes are still bombing residential areas across Yemen.
Saudi Arabia on Tuesday’s Apr 21 announced that it would end almost a month of air strikes against Yemen, but this airstrike still is going on because destructing Yemen is a “smart policy” of Saudi Arabia.
Exactly 1 month ago Saudi Arabia launched its bombing campaign against Yemen on March 26 in an attempt to restore power to fugitive former President Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.
Airstrike still is going on because destructing Yemen is a “smart policy” of Saudi Arabia.This policy is destroying Infrastructure with slogan of fighting against Ansarullah revolutionary.
