Saudi war on Yemen a failure: Nasrallah

Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah, the secretary general of Lebanon’s Hezbollah resistance movement, says the Al Saud regime has failed to achieve its goals in the brutal military aggression against the Yemeni nation.

"Tell me about a single objective that has been achieved. Has Saudi Arabia restored the so-called legitimacy in Yemen? Has it managed to prevent the expansion of the Yemeni army and popular committees? Has it confiscated the arms of Ansarullah? Has it been able to return Mansour Hadi to his country?" Nasrallah asked in a televised address on the latest developments in the region on Tuesday.

The Hezbollah chief rejected as lies the Riyadh regime’s claims of victory in the war on Yemen, asking, "Do Arab citizens accept such deception and misinformation? As an Arab citizen I want information about the objectives that were allegedly realized."

He further said the Saudi kingdom seeks to gain dominance over Yemen by launching a bloody war on the neighboring nation, saying, "Have they managed to achieve their real objective by restoring their hegemony over Yemen?"

"We are before a clear and obvious Saudi failure and a clear Yemeni victory. This is the result of the firmness and steadfastness of the Yemenis," the Hezbollah chief said.

On April 21, Riyadh announced the end of the first phase of its military operation, but airstrikes have continued with Saudi bombers targeting different areas across the country in a new phase.

The Saudis claim the airstrikes only target military positions. However, reports show civilians and infrastructure in civilian areas are being attacked. Recent reports also show Saudis have used cluster munitions in the northern province of Sa’ada.

The attacks have so far killed over 1,200 Yemenis, including many women and children, and injured thousands of others.
