Yemen warns against ‘suspicious’ activities of US, French troops in occupied southern cities

The parliament of the Sana’a-based government has warned about the suspicious movements of American and French troops in the occupied areas of southern Yemen, which has been the target of a devastating Saudi-led war since 2015.

In a statement, the Yemeni parliament’s presiding board cautioned against suspicious activities of forces affiliated with the US and France — two of the main Western supporters of the Riyadh-led war against Yemen, in the country’s southern occupied cities.

The parliament also called for vigilance in the face of “treacherous” attempts by the Saudi-led coalition of aggressors to hinder the implementation of the UN-mediated truce, the Saba news agency reported.

The UN-brokered truce between the coalition and Ansarullah first came into effect in April. The truce has since been extended twice. Sana’a has, however, reported many violations of the truce by the Saudi-led forces.

It also warned against the suspicious role of the so-called presidential leadership council set up by Saudi Arabia and the UAE, which the legislature said was devised to advance the agenda of the US, UK, and Israel to divide Yemen and undermine its unity, sovereignty, security, and stability.

The parliament also added that it held members of the presidential council responsible for the consequences of “their treacherous actions at home or abroad since they do not represent the Yemeni people” and have no legal legitimacy.
