He pointed out that the fierce battles waged by the heroes of the Armed Forces on various fronts has no parallel in contemporary history.
He said, “The Yemeni fighter faced the most modern equipment and means of warfare and advanced capabilities of the enemy with his personal weapon, his strongest weapon will remain his trust in God and the justice of his cause which is fighting for.” He pointed out that the unity of leadership and position of the leader of the revolution, Sayyed Abdulmalik Al-Houthi and political leadership represented by the President, Field Marshal Mahdi Al-Mashat, one of the reasons for victory for the country and the people.

“What happened by the enemy (targeting its mercenaries) should be a lesson for those deceived, who are still standing by the aggression,” he said, calling on the families of those deceived to look for the fate of their children “who are still fighting in the line of the enemy, which pushes them to incinerators to get rid of them.”
