Leader of Yemeni resistance movement Ansarullah has condemned Saudi Arabia and allies over mulling bombardment of the capital Sana’a stressing that resistance against Saudi-led atrocities is number one priority for the movement.
The war in Yemen started in 2015, following the ousting of President Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi on 22 January 2015 by the Houthis. President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi fled to Saudi Arabia where he started lobbying for support from Saudi Arabia and other Persian Gulf States.
Several protests were held in different Yemeni cities, including Sana’a, Ibb, Al-Baidha, Taiz, Hajjah, Raymah, Amran, Thamar, Al-Mahwit, and Sa’adah to mark the National Day of Resilience – the day when the Saudi-led coalition started aggression on Yemen.
Saudi Arabia began invading Yemen in March 2015 with the formation of an Arab-American coalition, but in the past seven years, with the exception of the UAE and the United States, other Saudi allies have left the alliance, and Abu Dhabi is now moving from an old ally to a rival. Turned over in Riyadh in southern Yemen.
More than seven years after the invasion of the Saudi-led coalition, the Yemeni army, and popular committees have taken control of the ground on various fronts, including central and western Yemen, and Yemeni missiles and drones have turned out to be a nightmare for the Saudi regime.
Saudi Arabia, with the support of the United States, the United Arab Emirates, and several other countries, invaded Yemen in March 2015. The outbreak of war by Saudi Arabia and its allies in Yemen has so far killed tens of thousands and displaced millions of Yemenis.
Yemen’s Ambassador in Damascus Abdullah Ali Sabri expressed in a statement his country’s full solidarity with Syria in face of the repeated Israeli aggressions on its lands, stressing that this aggression is a violation of the states’ sovereignty and a clear breach of international laws and norms.
