“The Syrian army and Ansarullah are in control of vast areas in the Southern parts of Yemen,” Hossein al-Houthi told FNA on Wednesday.
He noted that the main reason for the pro-Hadi and Al-Qaeda militants’ control over some regions in Southern Yemen is Saudi Arabia’s military and logistical support for the terrorists.
Al-Houthi said that the Yemeni army troops and Ansarullah fighters have paralyzed the pro-Hadi and Al-Qaeda fighters in Aden and Lahij provinces.
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 140 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 5,385 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.
