Coalition decision to stop Hodeidah attack is recognition of defeat: Ansaruallah member

SANAA, Nov. 15 (YPA) – Member of the Political Bureau of Ansaruallah on Thursday said that Saudi-led coalition militias’ decision to stop their military operations in Yemen’s western port city of Hodeidah as a defeat declaration in a face-saving manner.

In a TV interview, Mohammed al-Bukhaiti explained that the militias’ decision came “after they alleged that they had entered the city and were engaged in a street war.”

Al-Bukhaiti added “this is a recognition proves the falsehood of their media and confirms the credibility of the Yemeni media.”

“Saudi aggression media seek to mislead the public opinion by announcing the cessation of fighting in Hodeidah, although the battles are still raging,” he said.

Al-Bukhaiti called on relatives of whom he called “mercenaries” of the coalition to pressure their sons to withdraw from the battle, promising to provide a safe route for them to return their homes with their personal weapons.
