Yemen’s Supreme Political Council condemned the world community for remaining tight-lipped on the crimes being perpetrated by the Takfiri Daesh (ISIL) and Al-Qaeda terror groups against the Yemeni people with backing from the Saudi-led coalition.
In a message marking Eid Al-Adha (feast of sacrifice) on Tuesday, the council’s president, Mahdi Al-Mashat, took the UN and the entire global community to task for refusing to speak out against the “criminal actions” of Daesh and Al-Qaeda in Yemen, which, he said, take place with the support of Riyadh and its “allied invaders”.
Mashat called on the world body to recalibrate its position on the protracted war in Yemen and to end the policy of double standards in the war-ravaged country.
He likewise slammed the global community for not condemning the recent execution by Daesh of two Yemeni captives, accusing it of “ignoring the will and rights of the Yemeni people.”
The Saudi-backed mercenaries of Al-Qaeda and Daesh beheaded two Yemeni captives Saqr Ghanem Rashid Hussein Al-Maliki and Mohammed Ahmed Murshid Tawaf in Bayda last Friday.
The Yemeni official also lauded the country’s resistance forces and people for achieving a “great victory” over Saudi- and US-backed foreign mercenaries in restive Bayda Province recently.
“With the defeat of the enemy in the battle of Bayda, the Yemeni people removed the last remaining masks from the face of the US and the international community,” he was quoted as saying by Al-Masirah.
“No one has the right to blame us or condemn our right to defend our country and our people as long as the aggression and siege continues.”
