Ansarolá rules out that the alleged deployment of British troops in Saudi Arabia could protect this regime against retaliatory attacks from Yemen.
“The deployment of UK forces in Saudi Arabia does not change anything”said Muhamad al-Bujaiti, a member of the Political Council of the Yemeni popular movement Ansarolá, in an interview with the Qatari network Al Jazeera, published on Saturday.
Al-Bujaiti made such a comment in reaction to a report published on Friday by the British newspaper. The Independent which reveals that the British Ministry of Defense, without notifying Parliament or the public, deployed soldiers from the 16th Royal Artillery Regiment on the territory of Saudi Arabia to provide support in the protection of oil fields from aircraft attacks unmanned (drones) from Yemen.
In fact, London and the Saudi Ministry of Defense and other international partners studied how to strengthen the defense of Riyadh’s economic infrastructure, after the oil facilities of the Saudi company Aramco were the target of an attack, with 10 Yemeni drones, on September 14, 2019, the report states.
For Al-Bujaiti, the United Kingdom, together with the United States, are basically members of the aggressor ‘coalition’, led by the Arab kingdom, against Yemen, which has plunged this country into a catastrophic humanitarian situation, leaving hundreds of thousands of dead and wounded.
Faced with this situation, Yemeni troops have promised to reinforce their military might and launched several attacks, with drones and domestically made missiles, against various Saudi targets, including its airports, bases and oil areas.
In this regard, the Yemeni official alerted the attackers to the continuation of retaliatory attacks by the Yemeni Army and Ansarolá. “All facilities [de los enemigos] they have become a legitimate target of the attacks, “he added.
For his part, the spokesman for the Yemeni popular movement Ansarolá, Mohamad Abdel Salam, warned, through a message on Twitter, that “Neither American and British weapons, nor any other force are capable of providing an umbrella to protect the aggressor Saudi regime”.
Abdel Salam emphasized that Riyadh will regain its security once it ends its bombing and blockade campaign against the poorest country in the Arab world.
