Yemen Deals Heavy Blow to the Forces of Aggression in Marib
Al-Ahed Exclusive** - Sanaa
All eyes today are on Marib, the battlefield where the Yemeni Army and Popular Committees have scored heroic gains and victories against the forces of aggression waging a brutal war against Yemen.
In comments on the developments, Dean of the Diplomatic Institution at the Yemeni Foreign Ministry, and Head of the National Team for Foreign Communication Ahmad Ali al-Imad told al-Ahed News in an exclusive interview that the successive announcements made by the new US administration regarding ending the war in Yemen are insufficient: “We need tangible and serious actions on the ground.”
In response to a question regarding US Secretary of State Antony Blinken’s calls on the Ansarullah revolutionary movement to stop its operations in Marib, al-Imad told al-Ahed News that “this American concern about the Army and Popular Committees’ advance in liberating Marib proves the losses inflicted upon the US scheme in the region.”
“We are serious in making progress to restore Marib,” the Yemeni official underscored.
Al-Imad also pointed to the historic importance of Marib Province for the Yemeni people, not to mention its economic importance since it is place for natural resources as petroleum and gas. “The coalition of aggression and its mercenaries are looting those resources and spending the revenues they are making to vandalize Yemen and harm its people.”
In the interview with al-Ahed, al-Imad drew attention to the fact that “the battle to liberate Marib is not like the previous battles,” insisting that its implications will reflect on Yemen and the entire region. “We will witness their retreat and the disappearance of the American-Saudi scheme in Yemen,” al-Imad said, emphasizing that “our victory in this battle is a victory of the entire Axis of Resistance.”
In response to a question regarding any international communications to start negotiating the end of war on Yemen, al-Imad said “Yes, we have witnessed recently international concerns and moves to end the war on Yemen; however, it is not for humanitarian reasons, but because the West has been aware of the Yemeni people’s steadfastness and the victories the Yemeni Army and Popular Committees have been scoring.
Elsewhere in his remarks, al-Imad thanked and praised all the free people and all the resistance movements in the world, atop of which he mentioned Hezbollah Secretary General His Eminence Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah. He also hailed that world free people’s support of the Yemeni Cause and unveiling the crimes committed by the coalition of the forces of American-Saudi aggression, not to mention the pressure they made against those hostile countries.
Al-Imad finally thanked al-Ahed News, greeting via our platform everybody who supported the Yemeni people with their free words and protests in several world capitals to denounce the American-Saudi aggression against the Yemeni soil and humans.
