Chief of Yemen’s Higher Revolutionary Committee Vows Retaliation against Saudi Arabia’s Hodeidah Battle
Chief of Yemen's higher revolutionary committee Mohammad Ali al-Houthi vowed retaliation against the Saudi coalition's aggression with a response that would change the military and political strategies.
On his twitter account, al-Houthi warned that "in case the American-Saudi and their allies' aggression continued preparing for the al-Hodeidah battle, according to what was declared by UN Yemen envoy, then what was announced by the Leader of the Revolution Sayyed Abdul Malik al-Houthi will be ready, and they have known our ability to retaliate, and by God's willing, all our military and political strategies will change."
Al-Houthi further mentioned the first statement by UN's Yemen envoy Martin Griffiths in front of the UN Security Council after his appointment, describing it as a "positive" statement, and showing reservation on some points, including the time-limit of negotiations, which al-Houthi considered "an opportunity for the continuing destructive impacts against the Yemeni, with the blockade, salary cuts, and the aggression's continued daily massacres."
The Yemeni chief, on the other hand, stressed that the Ansarullah revolutionary movement agrees to sit for negotiations, and "form a national reconciliation committee, and abide by voting in electing strong President and Parliament that represent all Yemeni political forces, in addition to international guarantees to start reconstruction and prevent any foreign attack against Yemen, in addition to announcing a general amnesty that provides releasing all detainees from all parties, and proposing a referendum about any argumentative issue."
