Monday’s massive rallies in Sana’a chanting "death to the Saudis” and urging the authorities to respond to Riyadh’s crimes with whatever means of defence the country’s well-stocked arsenal possesses, once again demonstrated the resolve of the people of Yemen to counter the state terrorism of the Wahhabi clique.
The courage of the poverty-stricken, famine-ravished and epidemic-afflicted Yemenis to continue the fight and take it to the nerve-centres of the cowardly enemy is admirable.
It speaks of their resilience against an ignorantly arrogant invader which had planned to crush them within a couple of weeks, but hasn’t been able to do so in spite of almost three years of relentless aerial bombardment with the lethal bombs supplied by the US and the UK.
The Saudis may sadistically gloat at their killing of fourteen thousand men, women, and children, destruction of the infrastructure, and displacement of millions of people, but they have clearly failed in their goal of dampening the spirit of the Yemenis to resist and fight back.
This was evident by the ballistic missile the defenders lobbed at military targets at Riyadh’s King Khaled International Airport recently – a distance of more than a thousand kilometers – which means no part is safe of the spurious entity created in 1932 by Britain for its agent, Abdul-Aziz Ibn Saud, the desert brigand of Najd, some seven years after he had committed a series of gruesome massacres in the Land of Revelation, Hijaz, to seize the holy cities of Mecca and Medina, the port city of Jeddah and the mountainous resort of Ta’ef.
It is worth recalling that Abdul-Aziz, after occupying with British help in 1934 the regions of Asir, Jizan and Najran from the Zaydi Imam of Yemen, had told his sons to keep Yemen always weak, or risk disintegration of their Wahhabi fiefdom.
It is also worth noting that the government of Yemen has never considered the three said regions as part of the Saudi entity and has always called for their return to Yemen’s jurisdiction.
It is for this reason the Yemeni army and the Ansarallah Movement frequently target Saudi installations in Najran, Asir, and Jizan, where the people have sympathy towards them. It is this very fact that prevents Riyadh from starting land invasion of Yemen from these areas, because of the dangers of being bogged down in fight with the locals.
In view of these undeniable realities, it is still not too late for Saudi Arabia, whose nefarious designs have miserably failed in Syria and Iraq, and are all set for the suicidal plunge in Lebanon (following the undiplomatic detention and forced resignation of Sa’d al-Hariri – Premier of a sovereign independent country), to end its self-defeatist aggression on Yemen so that the different Yemeni political and religious groups could sit together at the negotiating table to resolve, without outside meddling, whatever problems they have.
If not, the coup leader in Riyadh – self-imposed Heir Apparent Mohammad bin Salman, the 5th son of King Salman, who in turn is the 25th son of Abdul-Aziz – will be in for the shock of his life, which neither the US or Britain nor the Zionist entity will be able to avert.
Meanwhile, the tightening of the illegal air, sea and land blockade by the Saudis in a sinister move to starve the Yemeni people and speed up their genocide, gives every right to the leadership of the popular Ansarallah Movement to target enemy ships in the Red Sea and to rain down missiles on key military, industrial, oil, and administrative installations of the so-called coalition forces.
This means, from Jeddah and Yanbu on the Red Sea coast to Dharan, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and Manama on the Persian Gulf are all within reach of Yemeni missiles in response to the crimes being committed in Yemen by regimes of the said places.
The free world, however, should take note of safe navigation through Bab al-Mandeb Straits and the Red Sea, as assured by Ansarallah Leader Seyyed Abdel-Malek al-Houthi in his latest message that "only those who attack our country will be targeted.”
And as Brigadier-General Sharaf Ghalib Luqman has warned "systematic crimes of aggression” and the "closure of ports” compel the Yemeni forces "to target all sources of funding of the aggressors”, and the country is ready to "respond to the escalation of the Saudi-US aggression promptly.”
