Leader of the Yemeni Revolution, Sayyid Abdul-Malik Badreddin al-Houthi has on Wednesday reaffirmed the Yemeni people’s adherence to the principle of Islamic brotherhood and continual support for the Palestinian cause.
“We will continue, with the free people of our Islamic nation, all efforts to confront the Israeli enemy and its conspiracies facing the nation,” Sayyid Abdul-Malik al-Houthi said in a televised speech he delivered this afternoon, on the occasion of the anniversary of the martyrdom of the founder of Ansarullah, Sayyid Hussein Badreddin al-Houthi.
The Leader of the Revolution stated that “the Yemeni people will continue to support the Palestinian cause as a religious principle, a human right and a moral duty.”
He also denounced the normalisation of relations between some Arab countries and the Israeli enemy, considering this move a “betrayal of Islam and Muslims.”
Sayyid al-Houthi affirmed that the US is the main plotter of the invasion against Yemen. The Leader noted that “Washington seeks to dominate Yemen at the lowest cost, which is through appealing to other countries to undertake the task.”
According to the Sayyid, Yemen along with other countries such as Afghanistan and Iraq were intended to be occupied from the beginning, based on the US strategic interests.
He went on to say that US troops have entered Yemen in large numbers seemingly for military training and then set up their military bases.
The leader further maintained that the US destroyed the air defence and naval forces of the Yemeni Armed Forces, so that the country would not be able to confront its foreign enemies, adding that Washington also seeks to destroy Yemen’s missile capabilities.
He highlighted that the countries of the Persian Gulf “will not be safe from the United States”, noting that they are currently being used to target other countries in the Islamic world.
Sayyid al-Houthi also hailed the effective victory of Hezbollah over the Zionist enemy in the 2000, and described it as “the victory of all Muslim nations.”
Sayyid Hussein al-Houthi was the first leader of Ansarullah, a movement he founded in 1994. He was martyred in 2004, when Saudi-backed forces in the employ of then-president Ali Abdullah Saleh murdered him, along with several of his supporters during a violent crackdown against Ansarullah and other anti-imperialist forces.
