Al-Houthi: Washington is directing the aggression on Yemen
The leader of Ansar Allah movement affirms that Yemeni military capabilities have greatly developed and accuses Washington of delaying the withdrawal of foreign forces from the country.
The leader of Ansar Allah movement, Sayyed Abdul-Malik Al-Houthi, confirmed today, Thursday, that the aggression on Yemen has systematically led to the killing of thousands of civilians and the destruction of the Yemeni infrastructure.
Speaking on the anniversary of martyr Saleh Al-Sammad, Al-Houthi said the movement conducted an investigation that led it to the decisive conclusion that the US is the one that set Al-Sammad as a primary target for Saudi Arabia, pointing out that "the Americans admit that they are the ones directing the bombing operations and behind the supervision over the aggression since its start."
"The Saudi and Emirati role in the aggression is execution, as they implement what Washington dictates to them,” he added.
The Yemeni leader stressed that “the coalition of aggression has significantly harmed the Yemeni people, through its killings, destruction, siege, and starvation, not to mention the grave issues at the health level."

Our military capabilities have evolved compared to the beginning of the aggression
Al-Houthi said, "One thing, which represents the country’s strategic depth, remains impenetrable for the Saudi occupation that stands unable to control,” adding that the offensive that we witnessed at this stage was the toughest in history, "given the size of the armies involved and the difficult conditions that our people suffer from."
"If we look at the situation today compared to the beginning of the aggression, and to previous years, we can notice a huge difference in the Yemeni military capabilities," Ansar Allah leader explained.
Al-Houthi added, "The [Yemeni] people’s solidarity and cohesion was a fundamental pillar for the development of these military capabilities," stressing that "we must uphold these capabilities and confront all attempts by enemies to break the will of the Yemeni people."
Americans obstructing the Omani efforts
The leader of Ansar Allah movement said, "The United States of America seeks to obstruct the Omani efforts by keeping the coalition of aggression away from any possible agreement or understanding, and this is totally unacceptable," adding that "the humanitarian file is a top priority in the negotiations."
He pointed out that "the US coalition cannot evade any obligations or agreements because it is the side aggressing Yemen."
"The Americans, the British, the Saudis, and the Emiratis should know that they must assume their responsibilities within the framework of any agreement,” Al-Houthi stressed, adding, "The sources of wealth are occupied by the coalition and under its control, depriving the [Yemeni] people of them for 8 years.”
The Yemeni leader accused the US of trying to postpone the withdrawal of foreign forces from Yemen for an indefinite period, stressing that “this matter is essential for us, and we do not accept it."
He further confirmed that "Yemen cannot accept the presence of any invading or occupying forces in any province or island, because that would be direct interference in our country’s affairs." He also pointed out that "the American and British presence in Yemen is aggression and occupation, and it cannot be accepted, and we deal with it as an occupying force."
In this context, Al-Houthi addressed Washington, saying, "You have to withdraw your forces from Yemen," stressing that "our aim is to defeat your forces, whether in the provinces or islands, and we will continue with all options to purify our country from any such presence."
A few days ago, a member of the political bureau of Ansar Allah movement, Ali Al-Qahoum, accused the United States of obstructing the implementation of the humanitarian file in Yemen, noting that it is procrastinating and blackmailing different sides in terms of the salaries and detainees’ files.
This month, the US aggression intensified its military presence off the Yemeni coast, in an effort to continue the war in Yemen.
One of the biggest lies is considering Iran the enemy, “Israel” the friend
The Yemeni Ansar Allah leader said that the act of some directing enmity and hostilities at Iran is a great fallacy because "Israel" is the aggressor against the Palestinians and the Lebanese.
He stressed that "Iran's positions are honorable, and the Islamic Republic is the biggest supporter of the Palestinian cause and the Resistance in Lebanon, which is what worries Israel."
Yesterday, Ansar Allah movement condemned the Israeli occupation forces' storming of Nablus and the bloody massacre that resulted in the death and injury of dozens of Palestinians.

He stressed that “the role of normalizers is no longer to let people down, but rather to support the occupation in its oppression of the Palestinian people,” pointing out that one of the biggest blatant lies is considering Iran the enemy and "Israel" the friend.
He further pointed out that "the UAE today is being exploited by Israel for economic reasons, and it now houses the largest Israeli mafias."
Martyr Al-Sammad played a role in preserving national ranks
Regarding the role of martyr Al-Sammad, Al-Houthi explained that "he bore responsibility in dire circumstances that needed huge efforts to preserve the Yemeni national ranks."
He continued, "Al-Sammad made every effort to activate official authorities, popular mobilization, and continued backup by the army and popular committees at the time,” adding that "officials, people, and the fronts remained coherent even after the assassination of martyr Al-Sammad.”
Sayyed Al-Houthi ended his speech, saying, "The movement of martyr Al-Sammad made them imagine that by targeting him, they would leave a vacuum that would enable them to achieve their goals, but they failed at all levels."
