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.”
تستمر في تدمير أرضنا، وبناء قواعد عسكرية في شرق اليمن وجنوبه، وتقبض على بلادنا بيد ملطخة بدماء آلاف اليمنيين.
تفتل عضلاتها اليوم على العمال اليمنيين وتطردهم من أرضها، في جريمة جديدة تضيفها الشقيقة "الكوبرا" إلى سجلها في حق اليمن واليمنيين. pic.twitter.com/lf3v6YOjln

“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.
