Over 6,000 Yemenis have defected from Saudi side since start of conflict

The number of Yemenis who defected from service in the Saudi-led forces and returned to the areas under control of the National Salvation Government, has reached 6,000 people, Brigadier General Riyadh Salah Belthi, intelligence officer of the Fifth Military Region, said on Thursday.

 

Brigadier General Belthi indicated that 750 of these returnees had graduated from cultural and other qualification courses.

 

He affirmed that the next stage would witness the return of high and medium-ranking leaders, after the exposure of the US-Israeli plan aimed at looting Yemeni wealth.

 

The intelligence official called on the rest of those who had been deceived, to join their brothers return to the homeland and take advantage of the general amnesty decision issued by Leader of the Revolution Sayyid Abdul-Malik al-Houthi.
