Yemeni Minister of Defence threatens Saudi-UAE coalition with "fires of hell" if war continues

The Yemeni Minister of Defence, Major General Mohammed Nasser al-Atifi, has on Thursday threatened Saudi Arabia and the UAE with the “fires of Yemeni hell.”

Major General al-Atifi confirmed in a statement during an event organised by the Medical Services Department on the National Day of Steadfastness, that “the 8th year of Steadfastness would be the year of Yemen’s hurricanes, and a renewed springboard for more excellence and success in the quality military industries in all fields.”

“The countries of the Saudi-Emirati coalition on Yemen will not be immune from the missile and air forces,” he said.

The minister pointed out that the coalition and its tools would be “on a date with the Yemeni fires of hell in the depths of its countries, and on various fronts at the hands of the heroes of the army and Popular Committees.”

Al-Atifi affirmed that “Yemen has not been the aggressor and has a legitimate right for defending of land, honour, dignity and sovereignty.”

“Saudi Arabia did not stop the bitter gains of defeats in every fronts that the coalition tried to escalate, until the situation in the coalition has now reached the stage of stagnation and collapse in all interior fronts, at the border and in the Saudi and Emirati depths,” the minister explained.

He stressed that despite the coalition’s failures, “it did not have the courage to announce its defeat and withdraw from the Republic of Yemen, but it recently has gone to maneuver in the economic and political front, by tightening the siege on all outlets in failed attempt to make a new conspiracy against Yemen, which they called a dialogue in Riyadh.”

“What the coalition is doing by imposing a suffocating land, sea and air blockade on our Yemeni people, is the work of pirates and a flagrant violation and international norms, human values and human rights. It is a moral responsibility that the United Nations and its organisations that have been held hostage by dirty petrodollars have breached,” al-Atifi added.
