Army: Saudi Cities to Become Legitimate Targets for Yemeni Troops

The Saudi cities of Jeddah, Abha, and the capital Riyadh will turn into legitimate targets for the Yemeni forces in their retaliatory attacks against the kingdom, which is continuing military aggression against its impoverished Southern neighbor, a spokesman for the Yemeni army said. Brigadier General Sharaf Luqman made the remarks on Saturday, a day after attacks by Ansarullah fighters and their allied army units killed dozens of Saudi, Emirati, and Bahraini soldiers in Yemen’s Ma’rib province, press tv reported.

The Yemeni official also said the number of Emirati troopers killed in the raids goes beyond 75, contradicting the UAE’s official figure standing at 45. The Emirati troops as well as five Bahraini soldiers were killed on Friday in an arms depot blast in al-Safer airport in Ma’rib, 250 kilometers (150 miles) East of the capital Sana’a, a source at the scene said. The Ansarullah fighters said the blast was caused by a rocket attack. In a separate attack, at least 16 Saudi soldiers were killed in an ambush by Ansarullah fighters and their allied army units near the Mash’al base in Saudi Arabia’s Southwestern Jizan region. Riyadh has confirmed 10 of the fatalities. On Saturday, Yemeni forces launched missile attacks at several targets including a military camp in Jizan. Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 165 days now to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 5,670 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.
Source Rejects Media Reports on Detention of Iranian Military Adviser in Yemen

No Iranian military adviser has been arrested in Yemen, an informed source announced on Sunday. Such reports are fabricated and are no more than a worthless piece of news released for certain purposes, an informed source at the Iranian foreign ministry, speaking on condition of anonymity, said. Some pro-Saudi media outlets had claimed that Saudi forces and pro-Hadi militias had arrested an Iranian national who provided military counseling services to the Yemeni army and the Arab country’s revolutionary forces. In late August, Iran, once again, called on the world states and international bodies to utilize their entire diplomatic capacities to force the Saudi-led coalition to immediately halt their airstrikes on Yemen to pave the ground for national dialogue in the crisis-hit country. “The parties that are after creating unrest and civil war in Yemen fail to understand its undesirable repercussions on region’s security,” Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian pointed out. “Every influential domestic, regional and international party has to assist the UN Secretary General’s special envoy for Yemen to reach a fair political agreement,” he further added. Amir Abdollahian said collaboration in the crimes against humanity in Yemen or remaining silent vis-à-vis such crimes, will give rise to the dangerous growth of terrorism. Iran will continue dispatching its humanitarian assistance to Yemen through international organizations, he said. In mid-April, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif put forward details of a proposed peace plan according to which Tehran seeks to help end the ongoing conflict gripping Yemen. During his visit to the Spanish capital, Madrid, Zarif proposed a four-point plan, emphasizing the Yemeni nation’s right to decide its own future free from foreign interference. The proposal includes hammering out a ceasefire, sending humanitarian assistance to the people affected by violence, launching an intra-Yemeni dialog, and establishing a broad-based government participated by all Yemeni factions, according to Zarif.
