Speaking to FNA, senior Ansarullah leader Habib Zuhair al-Muslim denied the recent claims of Ahmed al-Assiri, the spokesman of “Decisive Storm” military operation, about the destruction of 80% of the arms and ammunition of the movement during the Saudi-led air strikes.
Muslim stressed that the Saudi air strikes “targeted the Yemeni people not Ansarullah areas”.
He further said most of Ansarullah revolutionaries’ arms, armored vehicles and rockets are stored in secret and safe depots, adding that Persian Gulf kingdom may not find their whereabouts.
Meanwhile, Muslim reiterated that Ansarullah revolutionaries have regained control of most terrorists-held areas during the last week, adding that they targeted terrorists’ warehouses and rocket launchers in Aden city.
He also called on the international organizations and Human Rights Watch to investigate the situation in Yemen, saying Saudi Arabia has used toxic gases and chemicals in its air strikes on Sana’a and other governorates more than 20 times so far.
Muslim underlined that the international organizations should rely on the reports of Yemen residents, eye witnesses and medics, not on Saudi media reports if they really intend to find out the reality.
Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 27 days now to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed over 2,795 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children. The attacks have also left thousands of people injured.
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.
