Yemeni Minister of Defence: Our new military capabilities will shock the invaders

Yemen’s Minister of Defence, Major General Mohammad al-Atifi, has said that Yemen has a new military strategy to keep up with the overall national and regional developments.

In a statement to Saba news Agency, al-Atifi affirmed that in the seventh year of aggression, “the Republic of Yemen possesses capabilities that have been achieved in a short time, defensively, offensively and at various tactical, training and armament levels.”

Major General al-Atifi indicated that Yemen, with its great victories, stands today on the “threshold of a decisive and powerful stage, the impact of which will extend far beyond what the aggressors imagine in their miscalculations.”

The Minister of Defence stressed that the next period “will cost the countries involved in aggression a heavy price if they continue their arrogance against Yemen. This is what they must absorb well, and benefit from previous lessons.”

He explained that the forces of aggression are practicing their usual allegations, claiming to want peace but only saying it for media purposes.

Al-Atifi pointed out that “the continuation of the siege and aggression and its dangerous escalation against the Yemeni people is the biggest threat to peace and stability in Yemen, the region and the world.”

“In the same course, no positive results can be achieved for any upcoming negotiations as long as there are US-Zionist interventions towards the sponsors of peace in the international community,” he added.

He pointed to the nature of events and developments in the districts of Al-Zahir and Al-Sawma’a, in the southwest of Bayda governorate, and the mobilisation of terrorist groups from the Al-Qaeda, Daesh and Al-Nusra organisations.

“The fact that they resort to these terrorist groups expresses the great bankruptcy in the combative military position of the countries of aggression,” minister Mohammed al-Atifi said.

“It also revealed the true role of the US regime and its followers and tools in the region, who claim to fight these terrorists while they are the ones who support them and line them up against our people.”
