Ansarullah Warns to Give Crushing Response to Saudi Arabia’s Intensified Attacks

Yemen’s popular Ansarullah movement warned that it will soon start to retaliate Saudi Arabia’s intensified attacks will maximum power.

Ansarullah Spokesman Mohammed Abdulsalam said in a statement that if Riyadh increases the volume of its attacks against Yemen, it will face the resistance group’s crushing response.

He, meantime, underlined that Ansarullah is ready to find a fair political solution to the crisis in Yemen which doesn’t violate the country’s sovereignty.

Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 176 days now to restore power to Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.

The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 5,954 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.

Hadi stepped down in January and refused to reconsider the decision despite calls by Ansarullah revolutionaries of the Houthi movement.

Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi warplanes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.

Saudi Soldier Calls on Riyadh to Stop Aggression on Yemen

A Saudi soldiers captured by Yemeni forces urged his country to stop its bloody aggression against Yemen.

In a footage aired by Yemen’s al-Masirah TV, a soldier identifying himself as Ibrahim Mohammad Hakami can be seen calling on the kingdom’s armed forces to put down their guns and reject Saudi Arabia’s justification for the war on Yemen.

He then goes on to thank the Yemeni troops who captured him for their humane treatment of prisoners.

The Yemen Tragedy and the Ongoing Crisis of the Left in the United States

…………………..In Yemen, six months of relentless and seemingly indiscriminate bombing by the repressive Wahhabaist dictatorship of Saudi Arabia has cost the lives of over four thousands human beings, who according to the United Nations and major human rights organizations have been primarily civilians.

Along with this wanton murder, the Saudi government and its allies from the contemptuous gang of corrupt Arab monarchies known as the Gulf Cooperation Council benefit from the diplomatic cover and military support from the equally contemptuous U.S. state. Together, they have created a humanitarian catastrophe in one of the poorest nations on the planet.

Yet, for the majority of the people in the U.S., the carnage in Yemen simply does not exist because it has not been in the interests of the rulers to draw the attention of the American people to it.

Therefore, the U.S. public is unaware that the U.S. is participating in the naval blockade of a country that imports 80% of its food by sea. They don’t know that the bombing, blockade, and massive displacement has resulted in widespread famine with more than 78% of the population now in need of humanitarian assistance. They never read the report from Peter Maurer, the head of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), who said that “Yemen after five months looks like Syria after five years.”

And while U.S. propagandists are preparing the people for an even more direct intervention into Syria, using the absurd pretext that somehow the imposition of a “no fly zone” is an appropriate response to the humanitarian concerns of refugee flows from Syria to Europe, the humanitarian emergency created by the war in Yemen is largely uncovered and outside the bounds of polite conversation in the U.S.

This conspiracy of silence has translated into impunity for war crimes and crimes against humanity. It has meant that the central role played by the U.S. in this criminal assault occurred without any opposition from mainstream politicians or most radicals and leftists in the U.S.
