Ansarullah Captures 15 Saudi Spies in Hudayda Port
The Ansarullah revolutionary forces seized over a dozen members of Saudi spies in Yemen’s Hudayda port, where an Iranian aid cargo vessel is due to arrive in coming days.
“A sum of 15 members of Saudi Arabia’s intelligence apparatus have been arrested,” Hamid Tariq al-Adnani, a senior Ansarullah leader, told FNA on Thursday.
Al-Adnani disclosed that the Saudi spies had arrived in Hudayda to launch terrorist attacks against Iranian relief aid ships and fire missiles at them.
The Ansarullah top official also announced that state-of-the-art weapons and missiles have been confiscated from the terrorists.
Earlier this week, Ansarullah leader Abdul-Malik al-Houthi strongly condemned the use of “internationally-banned weapons” by the Saudi regime against Yemeni people and lashed out at those so-called humanitarian groups that have turned a blind eye to this sheer violation of human rights.
In a live broadcast from the Yemeni province of Sa’ada on Wednesday, al-Houthi condemned the Saudi “brutal and barbarous aggression” against his country, and censured the so-called humanitarian groups that have turned a blind eye to the Saudi violation of human rights.
The Houthi leader also said the Saudi aggression against his country cannot be legitimized.
“What we hear from those who are linked with the aggressors… whatever they do to legitimize this aggression… it cannot be legitimized. Indeed, in reality, it has no legitimacy,” al-Houthi said.
He censured the Saudi “brutal and barbarous aggression” and called it a crime targeting the infrastructures of the country.
“It is a criminal and brutal aggression in the real sense of the word… Killing hundreds of children and women in a very ugly way… targeting the hospitals, mosques, ancient sites… electricity and water projects… is a crime.”
Houthi criticized those who support the aggression, saying that such kinds of stances are only possible in this world because “America has hegemony and Israel has a big say”.
The Ansarullah leader praised the resistance by the Yemeni people despite their sufferings and hardships.
“Despite the harsh circumstances, despite the suffering, our Yemeni people are giving all they can; with all they have… all components of the society play their role in confronting this aggression… Yemeni people confront the arrogant powers with steadfastness, firmness, and determination.”
The Ansarullah leader also noted that what Saudis want in Yemen is exactly what Israelis seek in Palestine.
He also noted that Yemenis are open to political dialogue though what stopped the talks was the continuation of the attacks even after the Saudis claimed they were observing a so-called ceasefire.
He concluded his speech by calling on the Yemeni people to continue with their resistance.
Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 58 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 3,889 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.
