Yemeni army spokesman Col. Sharaf Luqman vows that more surprises are awaiting the Saudi aggressors and their allies.
In an interview with al-Manar Website, Luqman called on the aggressors to lay out the women and the children out of the battle, stressing that the Yemeni army and the popular committees welcome man-to-man fight.
“We have defense systems which they had not experienced,” The Yemeni colonel said, stressing that the army and the committees will use such systems in the coming days.
Asked about the situation in Mareb, Luqman dismissed the “fake victories” announced by the Saudi-led media.
“They said they will enter Mareb and then will move to Sanaa within 48 hours. Up till now 40 days have passed and they did not control but a town near their camp there,” the Yemeni colonel said.
Meanwhile, Luqman noted that the Saudi-led coalition have been using internationally banned weapons in last days, stressing that such weapons are war crimes against the Yemeni people.
Yemen has been since March 26 under brutal aggression by Saudi-led coalition. Thousands have been martyred and injured in the attack, with the vast majority of them are civilians.
Riyadh launched the attack on Yemen in a bid to restore power to fugitive president Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi who is a close ally to Saudi Arabia.
However, Yemeni army, backed by popular committees and tribal fighter has been responding to the aggression by targeting several Saudi border military posts and cleansing several areas across the country, especially the country’s south, from Hadi and al-Qaeda-linked militias.
