BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:00 P.M.) – The Yemeni government forces on Tuesday strongly criticized the calls for the intervention of regional countries, especially Turkey, in the Gulf nation, describing it as “a great betrayal of the Arab alliance and the Yemeni people.”

The joint forces in the west coast (which includes the Giants Brigade, the Republican Guard and the brigades of the Thami resistance) indicated in a statement issued on Tuesday, that there are “political and media figures and activists from partisan currents hostile to the Arab alliance” calling for the intervention of regional states, especially Turkey, in Yemen along the lines of what is happening in Libya.

The statement described these calls as “dissonant voices”, stressing that they come under the guidance of “international terrorist organizations” in order to prevent the Saudi-led coalition from “achieving the goals for which it was announced.”

They continued: “The campaign to promote Turkish military intervention in Yemen, which started by influential activists, media and politicians who follow hostile party currents during the past few days, whose biggest goal of Turkey’s intervention in Yemen is to implement its agenda and its project supported by regional countries and put it forward on the Yemeni coast, to come to complete its purposeful project To expand their influence in the region. ”

The statement continued that those who call these calls “revealed their betrayal” and confirm that there are “communications, agreements and coordination” between them and the Ansarallah (Houthis) Movement, adding that these voices come with the aim of “shaking the people’s trust in the alliance and our confidence in themselves with plans and agreements prepared in advance to get us to, to allow The space for the Iranians and the Turks to be in the area is from the Yemeni gate. ”

The joint forces expressed their steadfast position to the absence of any alternative to the Arab coalition led by Saudi Arabia, stressing their rejection of any attempts to “find a new impact in Yemen by hiding behind the soft power.”
