The Leader of the Yemeni Revolution, Sayyid Abdul-Malik Badreddin al-Houthi, has stressed that the military operations in Ma’rib, Jawf and other provinces comes in the context of the confrontation against the aggression forces, adding that “most of the locals in Ma’rib are fighting along with the army and Popular Committees.”
“Very few of the people of Ma’rib are fighting under the command of a Saudi officer and are trying to impose Saudi control within the framework of loyalty to America and normalisation with Israel,” Sayyid Al-Houthi said.
The Sayyid made these statements during his televised speech on Friday, on the occasion of the first Friday of the month of Rajab, which is celebrated every year in Yemen.
The Leader confirmed that” the fight against the enemies and their mercenaries is aimed at preserving the Islamic identity of the Yemenis, maintaining their rejection of any hegemony, and emphasising that no one can justify the normalisation deals with ‘Israel’.”
Sayyid al-Houthi indicated that before the September 21 Revolution, there was foreign tutelage, mainly by the United States of America.
The Leader explained that “we, as Yemeni people and an Islamic nation, seek to get rid of having to follow America and Israel.”
Sayyid al-Houthi stressed that the Yemeni people do not want to be under the guardianship of Saudi Arabia, the UAE, US, Israel or any foreign country.
“Yemenis are free people and their identity of faith imposes on them the duty to seek their independence,” he added.
Sayyid al-Houthi further stressed that Israel and the United States of America are “two sides of the same coin, and America’s priority is to empower Israel in the region and strengthen its control and supremacy as well, in addition to allowing it to be the leader of what they call
the Middle East.”
“Hegemony is contempt and an insult to our people, and those who accepted this tutelage and promoted it and stood with it when our people rejected it, supported the aggression and fight today alongside the foreigners,” he said.
Sayyid Abdul-Malik al-Houthi urged the Yemeni army and Popular Committees to continue confronting the Saudi-led aggression, calling on the enemies’ states to stop the war and end the blockade on Yemen.
