The leader of Yemen’s Ansarullah movement has described the ongoing struggle of his fellow countrymen and women for liberty and dignity as the main reason behind the Riyadh regime’s devastating military aggression against their homeland, which has claimed the lives of thousands of people and left the country’s infrastructure in ruins.
“The Yemeni nation will never surrender, no matter how far the Saudi-led coalition would press its campaign of criminality and brutality. The problem of the Riyadh-based alliance with the Yemenis is rooted in the latter’s fight to live a free and dignified life,” Abdul-Malik al-Houthi addressed his supporters via a televised speech broadcast live from the Yemeni capital Sana’a on Thursday evening.
He added that the main responsibility of the Yemeni nation is to fight relentlessly against the enemies at every front.
Houthi then called on all freedom-loving people in Yemen to mobilize support for the battle in the country’s strategic western province of Hudaydah and along the border with Saudi Arabia.
Elsewhere in his remarks, the Ansarullah leader expressed support for the Palestinians’ resistance against the Israeli regime.
He also voiced solidarity with the Bahraini people, who have been facing the Aal-e Khalifah regime’s crackdown and repressive measures ever since a popular uprising swept the tiny Persian Gulf island State in mid-February 2011.
Some 15,000 Yemenis have been martyred and thousands more injured since the onset of the Saudi-led aggression.
