Yemeni Political Parties, Scholars Condemn US-British Military Presence in Country’s South

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Multiple Yemeni political parties and scholars have come forward to condemn the US, British, and Zionist moves in southern Yemen, citing the threat they pose to Yemeni sovereignty and the country's people, according to Almasirah news network.

The Alliance of Political Parties and Forces against Aggression Executive Board issued a statement expressing its opposition to the US and British visits and movements in southern and eastern Yemeni territories.

The board described the visits as an embodiment of external aggression and occupation of Yemeni lands, and a betrayal of national sovereignty by mercenaries who recruit themselves in the service of the country's enemies.

The statement affirmed support for the position of Abdul Malik Badr al-Din al-Houthi and his call for the battle of liberation and comprehensive independence to continue.

Similarly, the Southern National Front for Confronting the Invasion and Occupation warned of the dangers of the US's repeated visits to Hadramout and Al-Mahra governorates. The group argued that the US's presence in Yemen violated international norms and was a continuation of American colonial moves in the southern governorates.

The Yemen Scholars Association also condemned the US Fifth Fleet Commander's visit to Al-Mahra and the Zionist presence on Abd al-Kuri Island. The Association called for Yemenis in both occupied and free areas to unite, close ranks, and fight against the invaders. The scholars affirmed the Yemeni people's right to target foreign presence and called on the international community to condemn the US military interventions that violated international laws.

The US's recent military moves in Al-Mahra and Hadramout have escalated significantly, and the US's efforts to thwart peace efforts and circumvent the demands of the Yemeni people and the requirements for a solution have only increased. The various Yemeni political parties and scholars who have condemned these movements have called for the complete departure of foreign forces from Yemen.

According to an article published in late February by Huffpost, the Yemeni people are facing multiple threats as Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) continue to interfere in Yemen's political affairs. In particular, the UAE has been accused of supporting separatist movements in southern Yemen, while Saudi Arabia has been criticized for its airstrikes and blockade that have contributed to the country's humanitarian crisis. Meanwhile, the presence of foreign troops, including American and British forces, in Yemen's eastern province of Al-Mahra has sparked concerns about potential violations of Yemeni sovereignty and the exploitation of the region's resources.

The article also notes that the situation in Yemen remains highly complex and fraught with tensions, with various factions and foreign powers vying for influence and control. Many Yemenis are calling for a peaceful resolution to the conflict and an end to foreign interference, but the prospects for such an outcome remain uncertain amidst ongoing violence and political instability.
