Mohammed al-Houthi, the head of the Houthi Supreme Revolutionary Committee underlined that the war in Ma’rib will end only when foreigners withdraw their forces.
In an interview with Almasirah, he said: “We do not want a military solution, neither in Marib nor anywhere else in Yemen.”
“The aggressors, including Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, the United States, and Britain, are imposing a military option on the besieged nation of Yemen,” he noted.
He noted that: “We tell the aggressors that the battle in Ma’rib will stop only when foreigners, as well as terrorist groups such as ISIS and al-Qaeda, leave the city.”
“I advise foreigners to leave Ma’rib,” he said.
