World must know truth of Saudi war on Yemen: Nasrallah
Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah says the truth of the Saudi war on Yemen should be revealed to the world in a bid to prevent aggressors from imposing their own will on the Yemeni nation.
Nasrallah stated that the entire world should be aware of the heinous atrocities being committed in Yemen, and unite in the face of aggressors, Lebanon’s al-Manar television on Monday quoted him as saying in a televised speech to a meeting of clerics held in the Iranian city of Qom in solidarity with the oppressed Yemeni people.
“Yemen needs to tell the truth to the world, the truth of the aggression that is being hidden because of misinformation,” the Hezbollah leader added.
Nasrallah went on to say, “The Yemeni people need the international, political, diplomatic and humanitarian support so that the aggressors aren’t able to impose solutions that do not fit Yemen’s interests and its enormous sacrifices.”
He further emphasized that the Al Saud regime’s military campaign against Yemen should be a “matter of concern” to the resistance front as the war will determine the future of the Middle East.
“The US-Saudi war on Yemen will shape the future of the region, either in serving the interests of the global arrogance and the tyrants or in serving the interests of the peoples of the region and in line with their desires and wills,” he noted, adding, “For this reason, this war must be a matter of concern for all of us.”
Nasrallah also hailed the Yemenis’ wisdom and discernment, saying they completely understand the reality of the Saudi aggression and thus can defeat Riyadh.
“The Yemeni people, with their brave army and courageous fighters of the popular committees, are strongly steadfast and determined to win and to defeat the aggressors,” he went on to say.
Unhappy with the advances of Ansarullah fighters and popular committees in Yemen and their major gains against al-Qaeda-linked elements, the Al Saud regime has resorted to a deadly military campaign in an attempt to restore power the country’s runaway former president Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.
In the latest in a string of deadly strikes on Yemen, Saudi warplanes targeted positions in Maran and Hidan districts in the northwestern province of Sa’ada, killing three women. Saudi airborne assaults also pounded the northwestern Hajjah Province.
In the southwestern province of Dhale, the Saudi jets carried out eight airstrikes, targeting a university building and residential areas. According to Yemeni reports a number of people were killed ot injured in the attacks.
The United Nations says some 2,000 have lost their lives in the war-torn country since March 19.
