Ansarullah Official: Saudi Plot to Attack Sana’a Failed
According to a senior member of the political bureau of Yemen’s Houthi Ansarullah Movement they have defused Saudi Arabia’s plan for capturing Sana’a.
“The Riyadh government had plotted for the fall of Sana’a, but Ansarullah movement with maximum vigilance foiled it,” the Arabic-language Beirut-based Al-Akhbar newspaper quoted Shami as saying on Tuesday.
He underlined that the plot to capture the Yemeni capital has failed and what the pro-Saudi media are propagating now is just psychological war.
In similar development, Ali Rasheed al-Zaidi, another senior Ansarullah leader, said last month that the Saudi had planned to kill a number of Yemeni army commanders to destabilize the country and push it into chaos in a bid to pave the way for the takeover of Sana’a and a subsequent military coup by the pro-Hadi militias.
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 146 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 5,419 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.
