Hezbollah Deputy Secretary General Sheikh Naim Qassem said that the Saudi declaration of halting the so-called “Decisive Strom” against Yemen is an official admission of its first defeat by the Yemeni people.
During a Hezbollah ceremony in Beirut Friday, Sheikh Qassem said that the “Restoring Hope” operation is an attempt by Riyadh to wage another sort of war against the Yemeni people.
“We have seen the heavy losses inflicted upon Saudi in Yemen, where Ansarullah (revolutionaries), the Yemeni army and the popular committees are controlling most of the territory in Yemen, as well as Aden…,” Sheikh Qassem said.
“As long as the battle lasts, the Saudi will suffer more losses,” Hezbollah’s deputy S.G. warned.
Meanwhile, Sheikh Qassem stressed that the political solution is the right path.
“Leave Yemen for its people, or else what is the difference between the Israeli aggression against Gaza civilians and the Saudi aggression against Yemen civilians.”
His eminence addressed the Arab states taking part in the attack on Yemen as saying: “Today, Israel threatens the entire Arab world. Where is your support? Where are your warplanes? Where is your dignity?”
Yemen has been since March 26 under brutal aggression by Saudi-US coalition. Riyadh launched the attack on Yemen in a bid to restore power to Yemen’s fugitive president Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi who is a close ally to Saudi Arabia.
On Tuesday night, Saudi Arabia declared the end of the aggression, dubbed “Decisive Strom,” and the start of another campaign called “Restoring Hope.” The Saudi-led warplanes are still conducting airstrikes on several areas across Yemen.
Thousands have been martyred and injured in the attack.
