Saree warns Saudi and UAE not to take any 'foolish' actions in Yemen
In his address at the closing ceremony of a military course in Sanaa on Saturday, Brigadier General Saree issued a warning to coalition forces and urged their Yemeni collaborators to return to their homes.
The spokesperson of the Yemeni Armed Forces, Brigadier General Yahya Saree, warned Saudi Arabia and the UAE from committing any foolish acts, threatening them with counter-attacks that would affect the entire region.
In a statement at the closing ceremony of a military course in Sanaa on Saturday, Saree took the opportunity to address Yemenis fighting for the Saudi-led coalition, urging them to surrender their arms and return to their homes. He explained that the colluding Yemenis should seize the opportunity before the window to return closes.

"The deceived should defect because the Saudis and the Emiratis will not remain the occupiers of Yemen … The aggression is coming to an end and the armed forces are determined to expel every occupier from the country... Our message to the invaders is that what you did not achieve over the past eight years, you will not in the future."
What was expected to be a quick military operation aimed at crushing the Ansar Allah, turned into an 8-year war that the coalition members have been struggling to exit. The Saudi-led coalition depended on their western allies to supply their unjust war on the Yemeni people.
The coalition forces have also repeatedly plundered Yemeni oil and natural resources over the past eight years.

The Yemeni Armed Forces have been successful in fighting off the Saudi-led aggression, and have developed their military strategies and capabilities throughout the war, Saree said earlier in March. He pointed out that the aerial raids launched by the aggression against Yemen amounted to more than 274,302 raids over the eight years of war, with only 59 taking place last year.
