“Daesh and al-Qaeda are present in [the southwestern Yemeni port city of] Aden. They might imminently take control of the city, “said Abdolrahman Mokhtar in an interview.
He noted that Israel also backs the Daesh Takfiri terror group in Yemen.
“Israel also supports Daesh and extremist groups just the way it backs them in Syria and provides them with weapons and medical aid.”
The Ansarullah official termed Saudi Arabia “an equivalent of” and “the mother of” Daesh, saying Riyadh and Tel Aviv are working in tandem to strike targets in Yemen.
“Israel and Saudi Arabia are more than ordinary partners. They conduct joint reconnaissance missions in Yemen and their jets bomb many cities.”
Yemen has been under military strikes on a daily basis since Saudi forces launched their aggression against their southern neighbor on March 26 in a bid to undermine Ansarullah and restore power to the fugitive former president, Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, a staunch ally of Riyadh.
About 6,400 people have reportedly lost their lives in the Saudi air assaults, and a total of nearly 14,000 people have been injured since March. According to the United Nations Children’s Fund, 505 children are among the fatalities.
The UN reported on October 6 that some 114,000 people have also been forced to flee the war-stricken country due to the Saudi aggression.
