A senior leader of Ansarullah forces described the false news about the fall of Aden International airport as a product of Saudi’s psychological war against yemen and expressed that the airport is under the full control of Yemeni army, Al-Alam News Network reports.

Seyed Hossein al-Houthi told Al-Alam News Network that the news by the Saudi media claiming the fall of the Aden international airport is sheer lie.

"After heavy failures of Al Saudi in Aden battle, the Saudi forces have embarked on psychological war against the Yemenis to weaken their sprit," he further added.

"The images of a Saudi C-130 airplane in Aden airport, published by the Saudi media, are fake," Houthi said.

On Thursday, Mohammed al-Bukhaiti, a member of Ansarullah movement’s political bureau, rejected reports circulated through some media outlets claiming that forces loyal to fugitive former Yemeni president Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi have captured Aden.

Mohammed al-Bukhaiti said that pro-Hadi militants have not been able to take complete control of the strategic Southern Yemeni port city, which is situated 346 kilometers (214 miles) South of the capital, Sana’a, despite Saudi Arabia’s incessant airstrikes to help them gain the upper hand over Ansarullah fighters.

Bukhaiti further said that heavy clashes between fighters from his group and militants over the control of Aden are in full swing.

The senior Ansarullah official went on to say that key positions in Aden are still being controlled by Yemeni army troopers and fighters from allied Popular Committees, adding that they are pushing ahead to drive pro-Hadi gunmen out of Aden.

Bukhaiti also said Saudi Arabia has reaped nothing from its deadly aerial campaign against Yemen, and has instead suffered huge losses.
