Saree unveils tally of 7 years of confrontations in Yemen
Yemeni Armed Forces spokesperson Yahya Saree reveals the figures behind the seven years of the Saudi-led coalition's war on Yemen.
The Yemeni Armed Forces unveiled the figures related to the military confrontations between the Sanaa forces and the Saudi-led coalition during Riyadh and its allies' war on Yemen.
In detail, Yemeni Armed Forces spokesperson Yahya Saree said Sanaa's forces had conducted 13,208 military operations to counter the aggression, and he underlined that the results of said operations lead to many captured military equipment, which was one of the best sources of armament for Yemen and its military industry.
"The missile force now counts 100% on the Yemeni expertise," he said, highlighting that Sanaa also possesses a strategic supply that it is working on enhancing.
"Our reconnaissance operations included the Arab and the Red Sea, the Gulf of Aden, and Bab el-Mandeb," Saree announced, adding that the scope of the Yemeni operations will expand further in the near future.
Experimental operations for new weapons
"In light of the aggression and blockade, the armed forces have become better in terms of national development [of arms]," Saree said. "They are about to conduct experimental operations on new arms that will go onto the battlefield during the upcoming stage."
Saree also warned the Saudi-led coalition in light of their escalations and aggressions in Yemen, telling them to "expect more operations from us, and they could include new targets [in the countries of aggression], including the capital cities and their most prominent vital facilities."
"The Yemeni Armed Forces will not stand idle while watching the repercussions of the crime of blockade on the lives of the Yemeni people," Saree stressed, revealing that Sanaa had prepared various military operations related to breaking the siege imposed on Yemen.
A historic accomplishment
"The enemy that is talking today about caring for Yemen and calling for peace has been working for the past seven years to divide Yemen and tear it apart," the Brigadier-General said.
With the eighth year of Yemeni steadfastness against the coalition's siege, Saree asserted, "steadfastness makes for a historic achievement made by the people of Yemen who will keep defending their land, sovereignty, and independence no matter the cost."
The spokesperson highlighted the role of the Yemeni Armed Forces in countering the aggression, as he said they were maintaining the achievements already attained. "We cannot go backward."
Internationally prohibited weapons
Saree recalled that dozens of thousands of various projectiles rained down upon the Yemeni cities and towns throughout the aggressions, killing and injuring dozens of thousands of civilians.
"The number of air raids that the armed forces have tallied for is 274,243," Saree revealed, pointing out that the Saudi-led coalition "used internationally prohibited weapons throughout the past seven years, which has been documented by relevant authorities."
