SANA’A (Dispatches) – The leader of Yemen’s Ansarullah resistance movement says the United States tried to ignite chaos in Yemen in order to take full control of the country, but the popular revolution of 2014 thwarted the plot.
Abdul-Malik al-Houthi made the remarks in a speech broadcast live from the Yemeni capital of Sana’a on Tuesday to commemorate the eighth anniversary of the September 21 revolution against a Saudi-backed regime in the country and its removal from power.
In 2014, the people of Yemen staged a popular uprising against the Saudi-backed unpopular regime of Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi. The Ansarullah movement took control of the Sana’a-based government on September 21 after widespread protests across the country, followed by Hadi’s escape to Riyadh.
“The September 21 revolution, from the religious, moral and national point of view, was and still is a requisite [for the country] and benefits our nation,” Houthi said. “The revolutionary movement was broad in its title, goals, and popular momentum, and it did not belong to a specific group but rather to all Yemeni people.”
Stressing that the Yemeni revolution took place at the time when American policies held sway in the country, the Ansarullah leader said such policies plunged Yemen into total destruction and the US tried to use the conflicts at the beginning of the revolution to its own advantage.
“Before the revolution, the American ambassador was the president of Yemen,” Houthi said, adding, “The Americans tried to exploit the independence of our nation and dominate our country indirectly and without war. The American plot was based on increasing the political divide in line with the internal disintegration of our country.”
He said the United States adopted a destructive policy for Yemen and did not care about the interests of the Yemeni people, adding, “Washington was working to escalate chaos in Yemen, and it was the movement of the Yemeni people that thwarted the plots of the United States and its allies.”
The Ansarullah leader said the U.S. was working to strip the Yemeni army of its military capabilities, and that Washington had turned its embassy in Sana’a into a headquarters for managing all sabotage activities in Yemen.
Houthi said the aggression against Yemen revealed the reality of those who want to continue their domination over it and that of their hostile policy.
Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates — the closest allies of the U.S. in the region after the Israeli regime — have been waging the war on Yemen since March 2015.
On the occasion of the anniversary of the 2014 revolution, the Yemeni army flexed its muscles to the Saudi aggressing coalition by unveiling new missiles.
According to local Yemeni media, Yemen’s new missiles were unveiled during a magnificent military parade in the presence of Mehdi al-Mashat, the Commander-in-Chief of the Yemeni Armed Forces and the head of the country’s Supreme Political Council.
