Yemeni forces will fight back any act of war
The spokesman for Yemeni army forces says Yemeni army forces are fully prepared to counter any threat posed by the Saudi-led coalition and retaliate against any act of animosity.
Speaking at a press conference in the capital Sana’a on Tuesday afternoon, Brigadier General Yahya Saree said Yemeni forces are fiercely committed to deal with any act of aggression.
He added that they would respond appropriately to any act of hostility, and that air defense units will confront any sorties of the enemy, whether they are aimed at bombardment or reconnaissance purposes, pointing out that Yemeni forces will spare no efforts to stop the brutal Saudi-led coaliion and alleviate the sufferings of the Yemeni people.
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.
