Yemeni army forces respond to Trump
The Yemeni army forces in several frontlines continue to deal with different situations facing the Saudi-led coalition, backed by the US, . Operations by the Yemeni army forces vary between attacking the invading forces, as a strategic response to the enemies atrocities against the Yemeni People, and stopping military creeps against their sites.
Yemeni army forces Spokesman Brigadier, Yahya Sare’e, confirmed on Thursday that the Al-Oud strategic front in Ibb province was completely cleared and secured after a 72-hour qualitative military operation by the Yemeni army forces.
Brigadier Sare’e said that they attacked paid fighters sites in Al-Oud from three tracks; the first track towards Al-Khamis market, the second track towards the highway leading to Asaq and the third track towards Al-Maymanah down to Najd Sanaf.
In a statement on Wednesday, the council expressed “grave concern” that the UN-brokered deal reached between Yemen’s Houthi Ansarullah movement and the country’s former Saudi-backed regime in Sweden has yet to be implemented, urging the parties to conflict to act on their commitments “without delay.”
The council said it will monitor the compliance of all sides with the “redeployment plans” agreed in the deal as it awaits a report by UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on whether they are upholding their commitments.
The Houthis have repeatedly complained that the coalition has been violating the ceasefire. UN diplomats earlier said the Houthis refused to pull away from Hudaydah ports as part of the first stage, citing fears that forces linked to the Saudis will move in to take over facilities there.

Trump on Tuesday vetoed a bill passed by Congress to stop American military support for Saudi Arabia’s aggression on Yemen, describing the resolution as an “unnecessary,” and “dangerous attempt” to weaken his constitutional authorities.
The US president also claimed that the attempt by Congress would endanger the lives of American citizens and troops.
Backers of the resolution argued that US involvement in Yemen violated the constitutional requirement that Congress, not the president, should determine when the country goes to war.
The veto “proves that the United States is not only involved in the war on Yemen but also was behind the decision to go to war,” Houthi spokesman Mohammed Abdelsalam wrote in a post published on his Twitter page on Wednesday.
He also held the United States responsible for “massacres, crimes and the unjust siege of Yemen.”
“President Trump’s assertion of support to the Arab Coalition in Yemen is a positive signal of US resolve towards America’s allies. Common strategic interests are best served with this clear commitment,” Gargash wrote on Twitter on Wednesday.
“The veto proves that America is not only a supporter of the war on Yemen, but it is who took the decision to fight the war,” he added.
The US has provided billions of dollars of arms to the coalition waging a devastating war in Yemen. Members of Congress have expressed concern about the thousands of civilians killed in coalition airstrikes since the conflict began nearly four years ago.
A member of the Supreme Political Council Mohammed al-Houthi said Trump’s veto confirmed that the illegal war, violations and the ongoing crimes in Yemen led by US administration to kills the Yemeni people.
Al-Houthi affirmed that the veto expressed that the war on Yemen is an external war to kill the Yemeni people.Al-Houthi added the veto was a green light for continuing the war and siege to push Yemen to the tragic humanitarian situation and reach the Yemeni people at the risk of to the famine.
In March 2015, the US -backed –Saudi-led coalition started a war against Yemen with the declared aim of crushing the Houthi Ansarullah movement, who had taken over from the staunch Riyadh ally and fugitive former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, while also seeking to secure the Saudi border with its southern neighbor. Three years and over 600,000 dead and injured Yemeni people and prevented the patients from travelling abroad for treatment and blocked the entry of medicine into the war-torn country, the war has yielded little to that effect.
Despite the coalition claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi bombers are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
However, Saudi Arabia relies heavily on the US in its brutal war on Yemen. Washington has deployed a commando force on the Arab kingdom’s border with Yemen to help destroy arms belonging to Yemen’s popular Houthi Ansarullah movement. Washington has also provided logistical support and aerial refueling.
