the leader of the Houthi Ansarullah movement
of Yemen, says the Israeli regime, the
United States and some of the their allies
seek to enslave the Muslim Ummah.
It is unfortunate that the rulers of
certain Muslim countries act against the
rules of Islam, the Houthi leader stated.
He made the remarks during an address
to the Yemeni nation on Wednesday.
Houthi said the enemies of the Ummah
are seeking to see Yemen and the whole
region fragmented and divided so as to have
the Arab resources at their service.
The policies of Saudi Arabia, he said,
are the same as those of the United States
and the Israeli regime that seek to crush
the Muslim Ummah without paying any price.
Saudis, Emiratis and others are
soldiers that are serving the interests of
the US and Israel, Houthi said.
Saudi Arabia started its campaign
against Yemen on March 26 in a bid to
undermine the Houthi Ansarullah movement and
bring the fugitive former Yemeni president,
Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, back to power.
To curb the increasing violence, a
renewable seven-day ceasefire under the
auspices of the United Nations was agreed
between warring sides in Yemen and went into
effect on December 15, but it has been
repeatedly violated, mainly by the Saudi
Blackwater mercenaries in Yemen
Referring to Blackwater mercenaries in
Yemen, Houthi said the activities of the
private security firm and the presence of
its forces in Yemen indicate how Washington
really defines human rights, freedom and
Earlier this month, scores of
Blackwater mercenaries were killed in an
attack by Yemeni forces in Bab-el-Mandeb
area, western Yemen.
The US security services training
company of Blackwater Worldwide, now known
as Academi, is one the most notorious
private security firms in the world and is
responsible for the killing of scores of
civilians in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Yemen.
The Houthi leader also commented on
the presence of Takfiri terrorist groups in
the region, saying the terrorists stand with
Washington, Tel Aviv and their allies,
paving the way for their presence and
control in the region while tarnishing the
image of Islam.
Rights groups have censured the US,
Britain and other Western countries for
providing the Saudi forces with arms, which
have been used in the war on Yemen.
The rising death toll and dire
humanitarian situation in Yemen has raised
concerns among human rights groups as Yemeni
sources say more than 7,500 people have been
killed and over 14,000 others injured since
the start of the Saudi campaign.
The US wants the bloodshed in Yemen to
continue, Houthi stated, adding that
Washington is after occupying Yemen and
enslaving its people. The war in Yemen is
the “battle of dignity,” he said.
