EXCLUSIVE: Ansarullah Foils Saudi Plot to Capture Sana’a
TEHRAN (FNA)– Ali Rasheed al-Zaidi, a senior Ansarullah leader, disclosed that the Yemeni revolutionary forces have defused Saudi Arabia’s plan for capturing Sana’a.
“Saudi Arabia had plotted for the fall of Sana’a, but Ansarullah movement foiled it,” Al-Zaidi told FNA on Monday.
He said the Saudis planned to kill a number of Yemeni army commanders to destabilize the country and push it into chaos in a bid to pave the way for the takeover of Sana’a and a subsequent military coup by the pro-Hadi militias.
Earlier today, the popular forces captured nearly a dozen fully-equipped military vehicles of the UAE units of the Saudi-led troops in Yemen’s Lahij province.
The Yemeni forces confiscated 11 Hummer vehicles from the Emirati troops in Lahij province, reports said, adding that the Saudi-led troops were due to transfer the vehicles to the militant forces loyal to the fugitive president, Mansour Hadi.
The media sources announced recently that the UAE has dispatched over 1,500 troops to Aden to fight alongside the Saudis against the Yemeni army and Ansarullah fighters.
The clashes between the Ansarullah fighters and the Saudi-backed al-Qaeda terrorists as well as the pro-Hadi militias continue in the Southern parts of the country as Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 138 days now to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 5,379 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.
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.
