Mahrah protest leader: arrival of US ambassador means Saudi plans so far have failed

Spokesman for the Peaceful Sit-in Committee for the People of Mahrah, Ali Mubarak Bin Mahamad, confirmed that the arrival of the commander of the US Fifth Fleet to Mahrah came after the failure of the Saudi project in the governorate.

He denounced the visit of the US Ambassador, “Stephen Gavin” and the commander of the US Fifth Fleet, “Brad Cooper”, to Al-Ghaydah Airport, which Saudi Arabia has turned into a military base.

“The visit of the US ambassador and the commander of the Fifth Fleet confirms all the warnings launched by the sit-in committee about the seriousness of the violation of sovereignty and the legitimacy of the occupation,” Bin Mahamad said in tweets.

He affirmed Saudi Arabia’s failure in Mahrah, which led her to looking for an international supportive cover represented by the American forces.

The spokesman also held the presidential leadership council loyal to Saudi Arabia and the UAE responsible for this visit, which legitimizes the violation of the country’s national sovereignty.
