Yemeni Army to Astound Aggressors in Coming Days: Spokesman
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The spokesman for the Yemeni Army warned the Saudi-led coalition that the forces of the Arabian Peninsula country will catch the aggressors unawares in the coming days.
“The Army and popular committees of Yemen have created the worst-case scenarios (for the aggressors) and as long as they want ground war, we are ready (to confront them),” Brigadier General Sharaf Luqman was quoted by the Arabic-language Al Mayadeen TV network as saying on Wednesday.
“We have many surprises (for them) which will be revealed in the coming days,” he said.
Saudi Arabia and its allies, who have been pounding the innocent people of Yemen for over five months, came under a rocket attack by Yemeni army forces and popular committees in al-Safer military airport in the central Yemeni province of Ma’rib last week.
In the retaliatory strike on Friday, Yemeni forces targeted an arms depot, where military forces were attending a ceremony in the barracks. Yemeni military sources announced on Sunday that the casualties of the retaliatory attack amounted to 300.
On March 26, Saudi Arabia and some of its Arab allies, including the UAE, began to launch deadly airstrikes against the Houthi Ansarullah movement in an attempt to restore power to the fugitive former President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.
More than 4500 people, many of them children and women, have been killed in the Saudi-led aggression against the Arab country so far.
