Yemenis launch retaliatory drone attack on Saudi arms deport at Najran airport as it covers up Its crimes on Yemen
Spokesman of the Armed Forces Brigadier Yahya Sare’e on Monday denied the Yemeni army forces targeting of Mecca, stressing that it is not the first time that the Saudi regime claims that.
The spokesman, in his page on “Facebook”, explained that the Saudi regime is trying by these allegations to rally support for his brutal war on Yemen, confirming that Saudi regime is again trying to exploit the religious status of Mecca to cover up its crimes against the Yemeni people.
The four years of Yemeni steadfastness in the face of the coalition proved the failure of this military and political war, he added.
Brigadier Yahya Sare’e stressed that we do not hesitate to announce our military operations and we do not need to wait for incorrect judgments about our goals and the timing of our operations.
Saudi newspapers claimed coalition forces intercepted a ballistic missile that was heading towards Mecca on Monday morning.
These allegations come with the Saudi regime mobilization to hold Islamic, Arab and Gulf summits in Mecca, in an attempt to exploit the religious status of Mecca to cover up its crimes, and to defame Yemen that defends its land in the face of the US-Saudi aggression for over four years.

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.
