Mohammed al-Houthi declares decisive victory over Saudi-led coalition

SANAA, Aug. 1 (YPA) – Mohammed Ali al-Houthi, a Member of Supreme Political Council announced that the pretext and justification that the Saudi-led invading coalition is using, is failing to catch on anymore, in what the deemed as “a decisive victory over Saudi-led coalition supported by the United States and Britain.”

“The U.S. escalation, even its incitement against Iran, has been used as a justification for continued support for the aggression against Yemen,” al-Houthi said in a tweet on Wednesday evening, adding: “We have won with the fall of this justification of their aggression.

“Trump’s aggression and slogan of fighting Iran in Yemen has become a burned-out sheet. This is a justification that the U.S.-British-Saudi-Emirati aggression and their allies cannot exploit [anymore],” Mohammed al-Houthi said.

Al-Houthi’s statements came in the context of al-Houthi’s comment on the resumption of coordination meetings between both UAE and Iran coast guard leaders, which marksthe first time in six years that the Emiraties and Iranians engage in such diplomacy, This decision took plac e during the visit of an Emirati military delegation to Iran on Wednesday.

The UAE and Iran declared “the need to strengthen diplomatic relations and ensure the security of Gulf waters” during a visit to Tehran on Wednesday by an Emirati military delegation, which was sent to discuss issues of border cooperation between the two countries.

Al-Houthi called this development a “positive message”, and said in his tweet: “This is an Emirati message that has exposed the falsity of their own [alleged ] objectives for this aggression, and their justification for killing Yemenis.”

Al-Houtihi pointed out that it is hypocritical that Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates are claiming that they are leading the war against Yemen as a way to fight “Iranian influence”, while at the same time increasing political, military and economic relations between Abu Dhabi and Tehran. This shows that the official reasons that the Saudis and Emiratis give for the war are false, Al-Houthi implied.

On the other hand, Mohammad Ali al-Houthi condemned Washington’s announcement of sanctions against the Iranian foreign minister Javad Zarif, saying in message on Wednesday that “The announcement of sanctions against the Foreign Minister of Iran is a sign of weakness and political lack of seriousness, and we condemn this.”
