Al-Houthi: We accept peace, not surrender
The leader of the Ansar Allah movement confirms the continuation of confronting the Saudi coalition aggression against Yemen, and explains that the movement may accept peace if their conditions are met.
The leader of the Ansar Allah movement, Abdul-Malik al-Houthi, affirmed the legitimate right of Yemenis to defend themselves and to confront the Saudi coalition, its missiles, and its seven-year siege.
In his statements, he stressed the responsibility of the movement to continue resisting this aggression, describing the coalition's crimes as disgraceful in the eyes of the international community, continuing to say that "the aggression against Yemen is a catastrophic and tragic war that lacks the lowest standards of humanity, values, and morals.”
Regarding the massacres conducted by the coalition, he noted that the coalition "targeted people at times of happiness, sorrow and in their workplace," emphasizing that despite the siege they performed and the ongoing famine, the coalition failed to achieve any of its goals.
Al-Houthi concluded by saying that the "movement accepts peace, but not surrender," and that their condition is that the "Saudi coalition stops its aggression, lifts the siege, and ends the war on Yemen."
Al Mayadeen’s correspondent has reported that the Yemeni army and the popular committees had taken control of new sites in the southern and eastern surroundings of Al-Yatama region, the administrative center of the Khab and Al-Sha’af district border with Saudi Arabia’s Najran, northeast of Yemen.
This comes after the army and the committees made progress in a military operation they carried out in Jizan, southern Saudi Arabia, which led to the killing and wounding of more than 30 Sudanese soldiers, according to Yemeni sources.
The Saudi-led coalition’s war against Yemen has been ongoing since 2015. Air raids and rockets have targeted cities and villages, leading to countless massacres and displacement of Yemeni citizens from their homes.
The coalition, furthermore, exacerbated their war on Yemenis through air, land, and sea besiegement. The siege prevented humanitarian aid from providing basic needs to the Yemeni people, including oil derivatives, medicine, and other supplies.
