Iranian conference calls Yemeni resistance a role model for the Islamic world

The Iranian capital of Tehran has hosted a conference on Yemen titled “Yemen; the axis of change and self-confidence in the Islamic world.”

The participants underlined that the war on Yemen is a “plot hatched by the US and the apartheid “Israeli” entity against the impoverished nation of Yemen.”

Addressing the conference, the Yemeni ambassador to Tehran said the war in Yemen is “an American war against the Yemeni people, because Saudi Arabia and the UAE are the puppets of the US in this prolonged war.”

Meanwhile, Iran’s Vice President for Parliamentary Affairs, Sayyid Mohammad Hosseini said that the popular forces have the spirit of resistance (…) and such a spirit has spread across the region.”

Since March 2015, Saudi Arabia and some of its Arab allies have been carrying out deadly airstrikes,, ground invasion and blockades against Yemen in a bid to bring fugitive former president Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh, back to power.

The war has already killed tens of thousands of people, mostly civilians.

Analysts say that “the resistance of the Yemeni people in the war has changed the balance of power in their favor, which caused the nation to become a role model for other Muslim nations.”
