BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:30 P.M.) – A senior official from the Houthi Movement (var. Ansarallah Movement) warned on Sunday that a “major battle” is looming inside of Saudi Arabia.
The senior Houthi official, Mohammad Nasser Al-Bakhiti, tweeted on Sunday that it is time for his organization to expand its military operations inside of Saudi Arabia.
“It is the right of the Yemeni people to attack the enemy on its land and reciprocate the financial damage inflicted by the Saudi Coalition,” Al-Bahkiti tweeted.
Al-Bakhiti called on the Yemeni tribes to differentiate between state and private-owned assets and properties if the attacks start, noting that the tribal forces will surely coordinate their moves with freedom-seekers in Saudi Arabia.
“We are liberation forces and not occupiers,” he said.
In relevant remarks on Saturday Yemeni Air Force Spokesman Brigadier General Abdullah Al-Jefri pointed out that the arithmetic of war had changed as a result of his country’s missiles and drones, adding that the Saudi-UAE coalition would be forced to stop the war soon.
General Al–Jefri told the Arabic-language Mer’at al-Jazeera news website that after the recent attacks on Najran, Jizan, and Abha, Yemen will launch offensives against the airbases, in particular, the Khamis Mashit region in Asir.
“The Yemeni missiles and planes will reach Riyadh and regions farther than Riyadh as long as the coalition countries continue siege and aggression against Yemen,” he added.
General Al-Jefri said that Yemen is also in possession of newly-produced advanced missiles and drones which can reach Bab al-Mandab and the Suez Canal.
