Saudi-Led War on Yemen Doomed to Failure: Lebanese Military Analyst
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – A senior Lebanese expert in military and strategic affairs underlined that the Saudi regime will surely face defeat in the war it has waged against Yemen.
"If we consider military and strategic rules in the current Saudi aggression against Yemen, we will come to believe that defeat definitely awaits the Saudi regime (in Yemen)," retired Lebanese army Brigadier General Amin Hotait told the Tasnim News Agency.
Although Riyadh can slaughter Yemeni people and destroy the country, it will never reach its objectives in this war, the analyst added.
He emphasized that Saudi Arabia will be caught in the flames it has ignited in Yemen, adding that in the coming weeks the Al Saud will regret its "stupid decision and criminal act of aggression".
On March 26, Saudi Arabia and some of its Arab allies began to militarily interfere in Yemen's internal affairs by launching deadly air strikes against the Houthi movement in an attempt to restore power to fugitive Yemeni President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.
Iran has slammed the offensive as a violation of Yemen's territorial integrity and called for a halt to the assaults against Yemen, which have killed hundreds of civilians and injured thousands more.
