Top Yemeni diplomat Mohammed Abdulsalam: Yemen will respond to recent Saudi airstrikes

The head of the Yemeni national negotiating delegation, Mohammed Abdulsalam, has commented on the recent airstrikes launched by Saudi-led aggression forces on the capital Sana’a and other provinces on Friday.

“There is nothing new about the air strikes on Sana’a. Our retaliation strikes will go ahead until the aggression is halted and the blockade is lifted,” Mohammed Abdulsalam said.

“If the coalition powers think they can change something in the battlefield, they forget that almost six years of the brutal aggression have only made the Yemeni people become more powerful,” he added.

The Saudi-led coalition stepped up attacks on Sana’a on Thursday and Friday, with strikes on the capital killing at least one and injuring 4 others, Yemeni media reported.
