The leader of Yemen’s Ansarullah revolutionary movement, Sayyed Abdul-Malik Badreddin al-Houthi, stressed on Saturday that Saudi Arabia has not reached any of its goals despite its relentless attacks against its impoverished neighbor.
Speaking during a speech marking the second year anniversary of the brutal aggression by Riyadh, Sayyed Houthi assured that targeting Yemenis is a part of a scheme aimed at targeting the Muslim Ummah (nation).
He stressed that the Saudi aggression on Yemen serves the Israeli enemy’s interests because Tel Aviv looks to the Yemeni people as an obstacle in face of its schemes.
“Yemeni people reject US hegemony as they show hositility to the Zionist entity and voice support to the Palestinian cause,” Sayyed Houthi said in a televised speech.
Meanwhile, Ansarullah leader stressed that the kingdom’s almost daily airstrikes against civilians in Yemen are nothing short of war crimes.
He noted that the Saudis, backed by several regional and international countries, were using some of the most lethal armaments against the people in Yemen.
Sayyed Houthi also slammed Saudi Arabia’s constant destruction of Yemeni infrastructures such as schools and hospitals.
He praised the people of Yemen for their resilience and for safeguarding the country’s dignity.
Yemen has been under an aggression by Saudi-led coalition since March 2015. The brutal aggression has killed and injured tens of thousands of Yemenis, the vast majority of them were civilians.
Yemen ports and airports have been also under a blockade imposed by the Saudi-led coalition, which also includes UAE, Kuwait, Qatar and Bahrain.
Yemen’s Legal Center of Rights and Development announced on Saturday that the Saudi campaign has claimed the lives of over 12,040 Yemenis and left more than 20,000 others wounded.
The center added that there were a total of 2,568 children and 1,870 women among the fatalities, noting that the atrocious onslaught had also destroyed 757 schools and institutes, 111 university facilities, 271 factories besides 1,520 bridges and roads.
