BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:15 P.M.) – The Ansarallah Movement (Houthis) of Yemen vowed to target very sensitive targets in Israel, and responded to the threats of the Israeli army about Tel Aviv monitoring the situation in Yemen.
A member of the political bureau of Ansarallah Movement in Yemen, Fadl Abu Talib, said in statements to the Iran’s Fars News Agency that “if the Israeli enemy is involved in any foolishness against our people, our people will not hesitate to declare jihad in the cause of God against this enemy, and we will not hesitate in directing the harshest possible strikes against the very sensitive targets of the Israeli enemy.”
Abu Talib continued: “The statements of the Zionist war criminals have been repeated, which talk about Yemen as a threat to the Zionist entity, so we would like to recall here what Mr. Abdul-Malik Badreddine Al-Houthi said, that our position regarding hostility to Israel as a usurper and hostile entity to our Islamic nation is a principled humanitarian and moral stance, and a religious commitment. In it, we meet with the free and honorable of our Islamic nation.”
In regards to the possibility of the Arab coalition led by Saudi Arabia requesting a truce or a peace agreement with Yemen, Abu Talib said:
“The aggression countries view Yemen with the spirit of the arrogant and over confident self. Therefore they strive to achieve a crushing defeat for the Yemeni people to satisfy their vanity and pride and satisfy their lust for killing and destruction. Therefore, they do not think seriously in the political solution at this stage, especially as they live in a state of failure, helplessness, frustration and defeat, and every day they become weaker, their lust for hatred and the unbridled desire for killing and revenge increases.”
The Yemeni conflict has recently entered a critical phase, as the Ansarallah Movement moved to capture the Yemeni government’s de-facto capital, Marib, in the northern part of the country.
