The member of Yemen’s Ansarullah politburo Hazzam Al-Assad highlighted the results of the massive military operation which destroyed several Saudi-led brigades.
In an interview with ILNA on Sunday, The Houthi official said “Ansarullah's Peace Initiative which proposed by President of Yemen’s Supreme Political Council Mahdi al-Mashat, is still on the table and if the Saudi authorities turn down an offer for truce and continue to bomb, aerial strikes on targets deep inside the Saudi territories will continue and even increase.
“A large-scale operation codenamed “Nasr Min Allah” that inflicted heavy losses on the Saudi forces in Najran, comes after weeks of planning to deceive enemy forces,” he said. Adding that during the operation Ansarullah forces destroyed several Saudi-led brigades and marked the largest operation by Ansarullah over the past five years.
Al-Assad explained that during the operation, thousands of them, most of them traitors, were captured, including Saudi commanders, soldiers and officers.
He also referred to the recent release of coalition prisoners by Ansarullah and said the prisoners are more than 30000 people, including some wounded, who were taken to hospital; noting that the brigades were mostly made up of Takfiri fighters.
And also, the head of Yemen’s National Committee for Prisoners Affairs (NCPA) stated the Ansarullah movement released 350 prisoners, including three Saudi nationals, in its latest goodwill gesture. According to the report, the prisoners were released under the supervision of the United Nations and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC).
The Ansarullah official said “The Americans are the ones who are leading the aggression behind the scenes and Saudis are a puppet in their hands.” Adding that if US government was serious about peace would certainly have done it.
Saudi Arabia and a number of its regional allies launched a devastating campaign against Yemen in March 2015, with the goal of bringing the government of fugitive former president Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi back to power and crushing the Houthi Ansarullah movement.
The war has also taken a heavy toll on the country’s infrastructure, destroying hospitals, schools, and factories. The UN says over 24 million Yemenis are in dire need of humanitarian aid, including 10 million suffering from extreme levels of hunger.
