How do Yemenis frighten the Saudi-led coalition?
Member in Ansarullah Mohamed al-Bukhiti confirmed Yemen’s full readiness to strike the Saudi and UAE depths, as a response to the coalition’s refusal to respond to the peace initiative of the president, Mahdi Al-Mashat, as he renewed the offer of mutual cessation of attacks.
On Thursday night, Mohamed al-Bukhiti warned that the UAE will not be targeted if it escalates its attacks, noting that it won’t bear the attacks.
“The targets banks are ready to be hit in UAE and Saudi depths, but now the decision is to stop the shelling,” al-Bukhiti said in a satellite interview with Al-Mayadeen.
Abdul Wahab al-Mahbashi, an Ansarullah member in Yemen’s Supreme Political Council, warned the UAE that Yemeni forces will wage destructive attacks on the Persian Gulf country if it continues taking part in the Saudi war on Yemen.
Mohammed al-Bukhaiti, another Supreme Political Council member, called for the UAE to “quit escalating tensions”, noting that “the opportunity given to Abu Dhabi is limited.”
Al-Bukhaiti urged the Emirati forces to withdraw from “the country’s western coast and its southern provinces”.
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.
