The head of the peaceful sit-in committee in Mahrah province, sheikh Ali Salem al-Harizi, revealed that British forces have recruited spies and opened intelligence channels in the governorate.
Al-Harizi affirmed, in a news conference held on Wednesday in the city of al-Ghaydah, that Saudi forces are the cornerstone in getting foreign forces to arrive at the province.
He explained that the Saudi forces have formed militias from Mahrah tribes, and have worked to train and finance them to confront the people of the governorate, accusing Saudi Arabia of insulting Mahrah’s tribes.
The statement indicated that “the Saudi regime is waging a war against the Yemenis, the latest act of which was the expulsion of Yemeni expatriates in Saudi cities.”
Al-Harizi called on Great Britain to “be aware of all the experiences of struggle [of the people of Mahrah] against occupation and occupiers,” pointing out that in 2019, American soldiers left Mahrah and were replaced by British forces.
