US, Israel Using Saudi Regime to Destroy Yemen: Ansarullah Leader
Iran targeted for revolutionary stances
Alwaght- The Saudi regime is being used by the US and the Israeli regime to destroy Yemen through a brutal military aggression, Yemen’s Ansarullah movement has said.
Addressing a group of Yemenis in the capital Sa'ada, thorough a video link on Sunday, the Ansarullah resistance leader Abdul-Malik Badreddin al-Houthi noted that the US, Israel and their allies are trying to impose their values on regional nations, adding that enemies view Yemenis as a worthless tool to sustain their own interests in the region.
"Independent forces in the region from Yemen to Syria, Lebanon and Iraq are considered as rogue from the American perspective, and sympathy for the oppressed in these countries is viewed as a crime," he said, adding that Washington is trying hard to turn regional countries into its own puppets.
Al-Houthi also noted that complicity in the atrocities committed against the Yemeni people is not an issue in the eyes of the US leaders, but when the oppressed and independent forces cooperate with each other, the US perceives such a move as a crime.
The Ansarullah leader urged all Yemenis to stand united against the aggressors and defend their country.
Iran targeted for revolutionary stances
"[When] anyone says Israel is a threat to our nation, the US and its allies say they are supporters of Iran, and with the help of this false justification, they (Washington and allies) target anyone that does not accept adopting a hostile attitude towards Iran," he added.
He also said the only sin committed by Iranians, from the perspective of the US, was that they freed themselves from being a puppet country in the 1979 and replaced western-backed Pahlavi regime with an Islamic republic.
The Yemeni leader added that regional or international countries that are not toeing the US line are considered a threat by Washington. Al Houthi added that, “the reality is that the US and Israel are themselves the main source of terrorism worldwide."
Elsewhere in his remarks, the Ansarullah leader said the Yemeni nation, from all walks of life, should boost their awareness of the realities of regional developments and use it as a tool to battle the US propaganda against the Arab country. Ignorance, he said, makes people an easy target for the US and the Zionists.
Yemenis to determine their future
Houthi also stated that only Yemenis can decide about their future and the internal affairs of their country and that absolutely no other country or organization, even the United Nations and the Arab League, can impose their so-called solutions to the crisis in Yemen.
He described as utterly ridiculous Washington and Riyadh's claim that they want to liberate Yemeni cities from "Yemeni occupation."
"You are Yemenis, who have occupied the capital Sana'a? The US wants to liberate Sana'a from Yemenis?!" he asked.
Houthi reiterated that the Yemeni nation’s resistance against the Riyadh regime’s incessant attacks was deeply rooted in religious orders and was meant to safeguard national sovereignty and freedom.
Saudi Arabia launched brutal aggression against its southern neighbor on 27 March 2015 in a bid to restore power to Yemen's resigned president who fled to Riyadh after Yemeni people's uprising in 2015.
Western countries especially the US, Britain are among key suppliers of weapons used by the Saudi regime to commit atrocities and war crimes in Yemen.
Over 12,000 Yemenis, mostly civilians including women and children have been killed during the ongoing Saudi-leg aggression on Yemen. The Saudi military aggression has also taken a heavy toll on Yemen’s facilities and infrastructure, destroying many hospitals, schools, mosques and factories. This illegal aggression has prompted retaliation from Yemeni forces including launching missile attacks on Saudi military installations in the country’s capital Riyadh.
