The United Nations says a record 22.2 million Yemenis are in need of food aid, including 8.4 million threatened by severe hunger. The Saudi regime in its 16-month aggression on Yemen has proved that it follows the same war patterns and conducts that the Israeli regime has been adopting in its assaults against Gaza within the course of past decade, particularly 51-day war in 2014 on Gaza strip that since 2007 is suffering from an all-out besiege by the regime.
TEHRAN (FNA)– A captured commander of Saudi-sponsored militiamen loyal to resigned Yemeni president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi revealed that the United Arab Emirates (UAE) has hatched plots aimed at the assassination of the high-profile figures of Ansarullah and the Yemeni Congregation for Reform, frequently called al-Islah, in a bid to advance its policies in the Arab country.
Ali al-Azani, in confessions broadcast on Al-Masirah television network, said the UAE has set up numerous terror cells in conflict-plagued Yemen, which are led by a militant called Ammar Afash.
Azani added that all activities of the outfits are being organized at the al-Safwah Hotel in the Western Yemeni coastal city of Hudaydah.
“I was initially on a committee run by Anwar al-Amiri in the southern city of Aden, and then forged an alliance with top-brass militants, including Ayman Hajar and Adnan al-Zuqri, in Hudaydah,” he pointed out.
Azani further noted that Zuqri was the head of assassination squads in Sana’a and the Southwestern province of Ta’izz.
“He has recruited a large number of people and tasked them with gunning down leaders of al-Islah and Ansarullah movements. All these would-be assassins have to obey commands being issued by Afash,” the captured militia commander disclosed.
