Yemeni spokesman: the coalition still on the dangerous way
The official spokesman for the Ansarullah movement, Mohammed Abdel Salam ,said that Saudi-led coalition, backed by the US, is currently stepping up its offensives and violations of Sweden agreement in Hodeidah province, through waging air raids, carrying out surveillance missions and hitting several residential l areas daily .
He held the coalition and its paid fighters responsible for all repercussions if they would continue in this wrong and dangerous course, Mohammed Abdel Salam said on Twitter on Friday, the implementation of the redeployment step from the ports of Hodeidah unilaterally put the coalition in a real test of its direction to implement the agreement of Sweden.
He added that the coalition has resumed it procrastination to proceed with implementing the next step, as agreed upon by the Redeployment Coordination Committee, confirming that the coalition after the Sweden agreement continued to create justifications, lies, and accusations against us that we have not implemented any step although the agreement stated the implementation from all sides in one time.
The spokesman renewed the commitment to the Swedish agreement and its practical paths in the Hodeidah agreement in accordance with the Joint Deployment Coordination Committee, while stressing the right to retaliate, calling on the United Nations to play its role and continue its required activity in earnest, as agreed upon and in accordance with the agreement of Sweden.
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.
More than 2,200 others have died of cholera, and the crisis has triggered what the United Nations has described as the world’s worst humanitarian disaster.
