The leader of Yemen’s Houthi Ansarullah movement, Abdul-Malik al-Houthi, says Saudi Arabia is carrying out the deadly aggression against Yemen on behalf of the US and Israel.
Houthi delivered a speech to the Yemeni nation on the occasion of Ashura, the martyrdom anniversary of Imam Hussein, the third Shia Imam, on Saturday.
The United States has called for the Saudi aggression against Yemen, Houthi stated, adding that the Yemeni nation can eventually defeat the Saudi aggressors and their mercenaries in the war the regime in Riyadh has waged on the impoverished country.
The mercenaries are being bought into the Saudi war on Yemen, the Ansarullah leader said.
Houthi also touched upon the issue of resistance in the occupied Palestinian territories against Israel.
We, the Yemeni people, stand with the Palestinians in face of the Israeli occupation, Houthi said.
The Saudi military has been engaged in airstrikes against Yemen since late March. The aim, as Riyadh has claimed, is to undermine the Houthi movement and restore power to the fugitive former Yemeni president, Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi.
Saudis are violating international law with the backing of Washington and Tel Aviv, killing women and children of Yemen, Houthi said.
The main objective of the Saudi aggression, the Houthi leader said, is to occupy Yemen and subjugate the Yemeni nation. However, he added, the aggressors are not aware of the extent of resistance on the part of Yemenis.
Nobody can humiliate or subjugate the Yemeni people, the Ansarullah leader stated.
