Islah Party commander: Saudi Arabia a “hand stained with Yemeni blood”

A senior military commander loyal to the Islah Party has on Wednesday denounced Saudi Arabia, describing it as a “cobra with the blood of thousands of Yemenis on it.”

Adel al-Hasani, who is residing in Turkey, said on Twitter that Saudi Arabia “continues to destroy our land, build military bases in eastern and southern Yemen, and seize our country with a hand stained with Yemeni blood.”

“Today, it flexes its muscles against Yemeni workers, and expels them from its territory, in a new crime that adds to its record against Yemen and Yemenis,” he added.

Al-Hasani’s tweets came after Saudi Arabia during the past weeks expelled thousands of Yemeni workers from the Kingdom.

The fierce criticism is all the more symbolic since it comes from a member of the Islah Party, which generally supports the Saudi invasion of Yemen.
