Sana’a has threatened to take appropriate military measures against the Saudi-led coalition’s hostile movements, which are aimed at harming the security and stability of Yemen’s southern and eastern governorates.
A member of Ansarullah’s political bureau, Mohammed Nasser al-Bukhaiti, said on Twitter: “We believe in unity on a voluntary basis. So, we do not need to raise the slogan of unity or death nor to raise weapons to impose unity by force.”
نحن نؤمن بالوحدة الطوعية وبالتالي لسنا بحاجة لرفع شعار الوحدة او الموت ولا لرفع السلاح لفرض الوحدة بالقوة لان الوحدة محمية بإرادة الشعب من صعدة إلى المهرة، ولكن التحركات العسكرية الخارجية لاحتلال اليمن وتفكيكه من قبل دول العدوان سيرد عليها حتما بالسلاح في الداخل والخارج.

“The unity is protected by the will of the people from Saada to Mahrah,” he said, noting that the external military movements to occupy Yemen and dismantle it by the coalition’s countries will inevitably be responded to with weapons at home and abroad.
This comes after escalating calls to divide Yemen’s southern and eastern provinces into mini-states that serve the foreign agendas and projects of the UAE and Saudi Arabia, amid widespread popular rejection of what is happening in Riyadh and Abu Dhabi.
Saudi Arabia seeks to separate Hadhramaut and make it independent from the UAE’s proxy in Yemen, the Southern Transitional Council (STC) militia, which calls for secession and a return of southern Yemen to the pre-national unity borders of May 22, 1990.
