Emirati regime too weak to start war against even one Yemeni village: Ansarullah

The spokesman for Yemen’s Houthi Ansarullah movement has dismissed the recent belligerent remarks by the United Arab Emirates (UAE) Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Anwar Mohammed Gargash, saying the Abu Dhabi regime is too feeble to fight in a battle against the residents of a single village in Yemen let alone the entire Yemeni nation.

“The Emirati regime is notoriously too weak to wage an armed assault on a Yemeni village. Therefore, there are serious questions about their capability to launch a war against the entire Yemeni people,” Yemen’s Arabic-language al-Masirah television network quoted Mohammed Abdul-Salam as saying.

He added, “The United States dragged the UAE into the Yemeni quagmire. The ongoing military aggression on Yemen fully exposed the type of relationship between a colonial power and one of its pawns. This war plainly showed that the Emirati regime is nothing without the support of the US.”

On Thursday, Gargash denounced Houthis after an attack on Saudi oil tankers, asserting that Yemen’s strategic western coastal city of Hudaydah must be taken from members of the Ansarullah movement.

إستهداف ناقلتی النفط السعودیتین فی البحر الأحمر یؤکد ضرورة تحریر الحدیدة من ملیشیات الحوثی، الإعتداء الممنهج على الملاحة البحریة تصرف إرهابی أهوج و یعبر عن طبیعة الحوثی وعدوانه.

“The attack on the two Saudi oil tankers in the Red Sea reinforces the need to free Hudaydah from the Houthi … forces. The systematic attack on maritime traffic is a terrorist act, which is an expression of the uncontrollable, aggressive nature of Houthis,” he wrote on his official Twitter page.


Qarqash was apparently alluding to an incident in which fighters from Yemen’s Houthi Ansarullah movement targeted a Saudi warship off the country’s western coast in retaliation for the Riyadh regime’s deadly military campaign on the impoverished nation.

Following the attack, Riyadh announced that it was temporarily suspending all oil shipments through the Bab el-Mandeb Strait.


Recently, Yemeni army soldiers, backed by allied fighters from Popular Committees, launched an airstrike against a strategic economic target in the United Arab Emirates in retaliation for the devastating military aggression against their impoverished homeland by the so-called Saudi-led military coalition to which the UAE is an important member.

A Yemeni military source, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Yemeni soldiers and their allies attacked Abu Dhabi International Airport using a domestically-built long-endurance Sammad-3 (Invincible-3) unmanned aerial vehicle.


The Yemeni Ministry of Human Rights announced in a statement on March 25 that the Saudi-led war had left some 600,000 civilians dead and injured since March 2015.


The United Nations says a record 22.2 million Yemenis are in need of food aid, including 8.4 million threatened by severe hunger.

A high-ranking UN aid official has warned against the “catastrophic” living conditions in Yemen, stating that there is a growing risk of famine and cholera there.

“The conflict has escalated since November, driving an estimated 100,000 people from their homes,” John Ging, UN director of aid operations, told the UN Security Council on February 27.
