Houthi: We won’t stand idly against continued Saudi-led attacks

The Houthi Ansarullah movement announced that Yemeni army forces and allied fighters from Popular Committees will not sit idly in the face of continued crimes and acts of aggression by the Saudi-led military coalition against Yemeni people, despite the former’s cessation of missile and drone strikes at the kingdom.

Ansarullah politburo member Ali al-Qahoum told Lebanon-based Arabic-language al-Mayadeen television news network on Tuesday that Yemeni soldiers and their allies are fairly committed to the truce, but will not stand idly by while the Saudi-led alliance continues to perpetrate crimes against Yemenis.

He added that whilst the Saudi-led coalition of aggression is pressing ahead with its crimes in Yemen, the international community behaves as if Yemeni people’s blood is worth nothing.

Qahoum noted that the opportunity is ripe for the Saudi-led coalition and the United States to review their calculations as Yemen is not a sitting duck for them.

An Ansarullah official on Friday stated that the movement would stop targeting Saudi territories with drones and ballistic missiles, hoping Riyadh would reciprocate the gesture. The United Nations welcomed the proposal by Yemen’s Ansarullah movement, but Saudi Arabia has so far refused to accept the offer.
