Al-Mashat: We will not hesitate to carry out painful strikes
The head of the Supreme Political Council in Yemen says US defensive weapons will not protect the Saudi and Emirati regimes from Yemeni strikes.
The head of the Supreme Political Council in Yemen, Mahdi Al-Mashat, considered that the US presence that was announced in Hadramawt is clear proof of what we said about the enemies' greedy ambitions in the country.
Al-Mashat stressed that American defensive weapons will not protect the Saudi and Emirati regimes from the strikes of the Yemeni missile and drone forces.
He considered that all the measures taken by the occupation in the areas under its control are null and void, affirming that the capital of the Republic of Yemen, Sanaa, disclaims responsibility for all these measures, which it considers illegal.
The Yemeni leader vowed that the so-called US and Saudi "Native Fury 22" that are taking place in Yanbu will turn into "The Long Escape."

Al-Mashat pointed out that the US is manipulating the Saudi and Emirati regimes, adding that Washington wants to raise these countries' worn-out morale through these maneuvers.
Addressing the Saudi and Emirati regimes, Al-Mashat stressed that the Yemeni missiles and drones are "designed to reach you if you act stubbornly and insist on continuing your aggression and siege on our Yemeni people," underlining that "neither your maneuvers nor the noise of those fleets in the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden" will have any impact on the Yemenis.
It is noteworthy that in early August, US President Joe Biden's administration approved a possible multibillion-dollar weapons sale for both Saudi Arabia and the UAE.
"I promise you that in upcoming days, you will hear about sudden changes," the head of the Supreme Political Council said during his speech, affirming that Yemenis will not hesitate to carry out painful strikes or pursue anything that would achieve their right to live in dignity.
Al-Mashat reiterated Yemen's clear and firm stance on the Palestinian cause and saluted the steadfastness of Palestinians.
Earlier, the Prime Minister of the Sanaa government, Abdul Aziz Saleh bin Habtoor, commented on the visit of the US Ambassador to Hadhramawt and Al-Mahra governorates and considered that it falls under the US' continuous endeavor to control the oil fields and ports along the southern strip of Yemen and part of the western coast.
