Ansarullah Leader: S. Arabia, UAE Rival to Serve US, israel

Yemen’s Ansarullah Leader Abdolmalek al-Houthi blasted Saudi Arabia and the UAE for their betrayal of Muslims by attacking Yemen, accusing them of serving the US and Israel.

“Saudi Arabia and the UAE acted hurriedly on the path of hypocrisy and betrayal to render service to the US and Israel,” al-Houthi said on Tuesday.

He, meantime, underlined that the enemies have failed in their plots to take control of the Western coasts of Yemen, calling on the friendly Yemeni forces to resist against the US-led coalition.

Al-Houthi also rapped Saudi Arabia for depriving the Yemeni people from participation in Hajj rituals this year.

Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen since March 2015 to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 17,500 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.

Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi bombers are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.

According to several reports, the Saudi-led air campaign against Yemen has driven the impoverished country towards humanitarian disaster, as Saudi Arabia’s deadly campaign prevented the patients from travelling abroad for treatment and blocked the entry of medicine into the war-torn country.

Yemen is the world’s largest humanitarian crisis with more than 22 million people in need and is seeing a spike in needs, fuelled by ongoing conflict, a collapsing economy and diminished social services and livelihoods.

A UN panel has compiled a detailed report of civilian casualties caused by the Saudi military and its allies during their war against Yemen, saying the Riyadh-led coalition has used precision-guided munitions in its raids on civilian targets.
