A top Iranian commander hailed Yemeni forces’ resistance against the Saudi-led coalition’s push to take control of Hudaida port, noting that the coalition is bogged down in the quagmire of the war they have waged against the Arab country.
“Today, the ignorant Arab coalition is bogged down in Yemen’s quagmire and is facing defeat and scandal (in Hudaida),” Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Major General Mohammad Ali Jaafari said on Monday.
The Saudi-led coalition and its mercenaries began a massive operation in mid-June to bring Yemen’s port city under their control, but have failed to achieve their objective due to Yemenis’ resistance.
The United States, Britain and France have backed the coalition in the Yemen conflict and keep providing weapons to both Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
The senior Iranian commander further hailed the recent achievements by the Yemeni forces in the face of the UAE forces and Saudi-backed mercenaries in the port city.
