EXCLUSIVE: Ansarullah Foils Terrorists’ Plot to Bomb Sana’a Grand Mosque
TEHRAN (FNA)– A senior Ansarullah leader disclosed that the revolutionary movement has foiled the terrorists’ bombing plot to destroy Sana’a Grand Mosque by several bomb-laden cars parked in front of it.
“The Ansarullah fighters have defused several bombs planted in a number of cars parked in front of Sana’a Grand Mosque,” Qassem Ahmad told FNA on Monday.
He, meantime, noted that Ansarullah has intelligence which indicates that pro-Hadi militants had cooperated with the ISIL in the recent bombing of Qobe al-Mehdi mosque which left three people dead and several others wounded.
On Sunday, Ansarullah forces shot down a surveillance drone sent by the Saudi army to spy on the bordering areas.
According to Yemenpost newspaper, Ansarullah targeted and destroyed the drone at the bordering region of Sahar.
There are yet no images of the downed drone and the Saudis have yet to show reaction to the report.
Also early May, Yemen’s Ansarullah fighters captured a Saudi surveillance drone in the Northwestern Yemeni province of Sa’ada.
The Houthi fighters seized the drone which had parachute landed due to a technical fault while patrolling the area.
Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 89 days now to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.
Hadi stepped down in January and refused to reconsider the decision despite calls by Ansarullah revolutionaries of the Houthi movement.
Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi warplanes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
The Monarchy’s attacks have so far claimed the lives of at least 4,688 civilians, mostly women and children.
