Missiles will rain down on you if siege drags on: Yemen tells Saudi-led coalition

The head of Yemen’s Supreme Political Council warned the Saudi-led coalition that a volley of missiles and drones will rain down on them should they continue the war and siege against the Yemeni people.

“Our missiles and drones will rain down on you if you insist on continuing your aggression and siege against the Yemeni people,” Mahdi al-Mashat said, Yemen’s Arabic-language al-Masirah television network reported.

He said the weaponry the US is selling to the Saudis and Emiratis is of no use against attacks by the Yemeni armed forces. “They will not protect you from our strikes,” Mashat told the two countries, according to Press TV.

The top Yemeni official also said that the so-called “Anger Maneuvers” conducted by American and Saudi forces in the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden are ineffective, adding that the Yemeni forces will make them “Escape Maneuvers.”

Neither the maneuvers nor the noise of those fleets in the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden can “shake a hair on us,” he stated.

He further said that all the measures taken by the occupiers are “in vain” and “baseless,” as the Yemeni people have become irrepressible under their wise leadership.

“We do not hesitate to strike the enemy with the hardest blows and will take all [necessary] measures to stand up for our people’s right to a free, independent, and honorable life,” Mashat asserted.

Enjoying arms and logistics support from the US and other Western states, Saudi Arabia led its regional allies, including the United Arab Emirates, into a catastrophic war on Yemen beginning in March 2015.

The invasion has been seeking to change Yemen’s ruling structure in favor of the impoverished country’s former Riyadh-friendly rulers and crush the popular Ansarullah resistance movement. The Saudi-led coalition, however, has failed to meet the two main objectives.

In April, a UN-brokered truce between the coalition and Ansarullah came into effect. The truce has since been extended twice, while Sana’a has accused Riyadh and its allies of breaching the ceasefire on countless occasions.
