Vital facilities in aggressor countries will be targeted if war continues, Defence Minister of Yemen warns

The Yemeni defence Minister, Major General Mohammad Nasser Al-Atifi warned on Thursday the countries involved in aggression against Yemen to target their vital and strategic facilities if they did not incline to a just peace.

“If the enemy does not seek a just peace, the world will hear the extent of our targeting of the vital and strategic installations that we monitored in the depths of the countries involved in aggression, which will have a clear impact,” Al-Atifi said during an event commemorating martyrdom of President Saleh Al-Sammad.

He added: “If the enemies do not seize the opportunities and initiatives of a honorable peace, then we have prepared our capabilities, and our capabilities will put an end to their games, and they must bear the consequences.”

The Minister of Defence affirmed that “our will is strong and steadfast, and our determination will not waver, and our stance towards our cause and the issues of our Nation, foremost of which is Palestine, will not change.”

“We are aware of the extent of the challenges and risks, and we are well aware of the evasion and procrastination of the enemies and their lackeys,” he stated.

Al-Atifi stressed that the Martyr President Al-Sammad was not changed by the authority and was not attracted by its gains, rather, he chose the curriculum of science, work and sound management, so he made the first features of building the modern Yemeni state with high efficiency and capacity.

On Thursday morning, an official event was held in the capital Sana’a, in the presence of the Grand Mufti of Yemen, Sheikh Shams al-Din Sharaf al-Din, Prime Minister Abdulaziz bin Habtoor, and political and military leaders, on the occasion of the anniversary of the Martyr Al-Sammad.

Al-Sammad was the first president of Yemen’s Supreme Political Council and an icon in the face of the US-Saudi war on Yemen. He played a key role in supporting the Yemeni Military industries that led to the capability of causing a heavy blow to the Saudi economy.

On the 19th of April 2018, Al-Sammad, was assassinated when a US-Saudi air raid targeted his vehicle near the besieged port city of Hodeidah.
