Ansarullah denies ‘Saudi-led forces’ advance toward Sana’a'

Political Desk A senior member of the political bureau of Yemen’s Ansarullah movement, Mohammed al-Bukhaiti, Tuesday rejected the report on Saudi-led mercenaries’ advance toward the Yemeni capital Sana’a.


In an interview with IRNA, he called the report a “sheer lie”, vowing that the army and popular committees would repel any attacks on their defense lines.

Bukhaiti expressed the Yemeni fighters’ readiness to target 300 military positions by missiles to prevent invaders from advancing. 

According to him, Saudi Arabia is providing Al-Qaeda and ISIL terrorists with financial and military aid via air and sea.

The Houthi official said such supports have caused some southern parts of Yemen including Hadhramaut to fall to the Takfiri terrorists. 

If Saudi invasion of Yemen and its supports for terrorist groups stop, the army and popular committees will dismantle Al-Qaeda and ISIL in the southern parts in two weeks, he underlined. 

Saudi Arabia’s military attacks against impoverished Yemen, which started in late March, have so far claimed the lives of more than 7,500 people and injured over 14,000 others.

The airstrikes supposedly aim to undermine the Houthi movement and bring the fugitive former president Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, a staunch ally of Riyadh, back to power.

A seven-day cease-fire deal that was repeatedly violated by Saudi Arabia had been put in place on December 15, when talks on Yemen in Switzerland began.
