“The aggressive countries have violated all international laws and war redlines by targeting high-ranking politicians. Assassination of al-Sammad will leave no impact on Yemen but it will make us give a crushing response to the aggressive countries with all our power,” Abdolnasser al-Rashedi, a senior Ansarullah member, said on Wednesday.
“Yemen is fully ready to give a response to the aggression and it will fire its missiles at the palaces of those kings whose countries are members of the aggressive coalition. Based on the Yemeni defense ministry’s statement, there will be no more safe haven for the Saudi and UAE kings from now on and Yemen will reciprocate their action with a strong response,” he added.
Yemen’s Ansarullah movement has pledged a crushing response to Saudi Arabia following the assassination of al-Sammad.
The movement has declared three days of mourning for him who was killed in airstrikes on Hudaydah province on Thursday.
Saudi Arabia and its allies launched the war in March 2015 in support of Yemen’s former Riyadh-friendly government and against the Ansarullah movement, which is currently running state affairs.
The military campaign has killed and injured over 600,000 civilians, according to the latest figures released by the Yemeni Ministry of Human Rights.
Several Western countries, the US and the UK in particular, are accused of being complicit in the aggression as they supply the Riyadh regime with advanced weapons and military equipment.
