Yemeni Defence Minister vows response with "incendiary fire" against invaders

Yemen’s Minister of Defence, Major General Mohammed Nasser al-Atefi, threatened on Thursday that the Saudi-led coalition will be faced with “incendiary fire.”

The minister affirmed that “the confrontation of the coalition forces is a strategic option that can never be reversed.”

Al-Atefi said, in an event organised by the Ministry of Defence and the Presidency of the General Staff on the anniversary of Martyr’s Day, that “a black fate will await the enemies, and burning and angry fires will devour their thrones.”

He stressed that the leadership of the ministry and the presidency of the General Staff will “take measures that will guarantee the families of the martyrs a dignified life, in gratitude and loyalty to the sacrifices made by their sons in defence of the homeland and the people.”

The minister pointed out that “the Yemeni people, throughout the ages, have rejected invaders and crushed the pride of tyrannical aggressors.”
