EXCLUSIVE: Israeli-Made Weapons Seized from Saudi Embassy in Sana’a
A large cache of Israeli-made weapons have been seized from the Saudi Embassy in Sana’a after security forces guarding the mission surrendered the embassy to Ansarullah forces on Saturday.
Ansarullah sources revealed to the FNA that after they drove all the 40 Saudi embassy guards out of the embassy and captured the compound, it found a large cache of Israeli-made weapons and ammunition.
The Yemeni forces also disclosed that they have discovered documents showing that the US intends to establish a military base on Saudi Arabia’s Myon Island near Bab al-Mandeb Strait to protect their own interests and ensure the security of Israel.
The Riyadh government has also asked Tel Aviv for state-of-the-art weapons to supply the terrorist groups in Yemen and forces loyal to fugitive President Mansour Hadi.
In April, senior Yemeni officials disclosed that the Riyadh government has used Israeli-made weapons in its airstrikes on Yemen.
“The Saudis are using Israeli weapons in their raids on Yemen,” Yemeni Army Commander Taher Rasoul Zadami told FNA.
The reports said Ansarullah took control of the Saudi embassy in Sana’a in reaction to the Saudis’ continued attacks on residential areas and hospitals alongside army positions in Yemen.
Meantime, clashes between the popular Ansarullah and the Saudi-backed loyalists of the fugitive president continue in the Southern parts of the country as Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 66 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 4,132 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.
