Ansarullah Leader: We welcomed UN supervision of Hodeidah port, but they are liars
SANAA, June 20 (Saba) – Leader of the Yemeni Revolution, Sayyed Abdulmalik al-Houthi, on Wednesday said he has offered the UN envoy Martin Griffiths in his recent visit to Sanaa to place Hodeidah port under the United Nations supervision.
"We welcomed a supervisory, technical and logistical role of the United Nations on the port of Hodeidah, but they are liars, they just made baseless justifications", Sayyed al-Houthi said in a speech to the nation aired by al-Masira satellite TV.
The leader vowed to resist the US-backed Saudi-led aggression coalition, affirming that "Britain, France and other European countries involving in support to the coalition's assault will be confronted too."
"The foreign military assault on the western coast has not begun six days ago as the coalition's media claims, but it has started more than two years ago."
The aggression forces have mobilized all their efforts, money and weapons for the western coast battle and the geographical factors have helped them to progress in the coastal strip, as an open area, Sayyed al-Houthi added.
Sayyed al-Houthi noted that the coalition forces have suffered heavy losses in the battle and lost military leaders, including senior Saudi, Emirati, American and Israeli officers, who were part of "Blackwater" troops.
"The battles have not stopped over 32 months in the western coast from Bab al-Mandab area until the recent period in Duraihmi and al-Dawar areas," al-Houthi said.
He confirmed that the coming battles will be more difficult and painful for the aggression forces.
"A large area of the coast is still free under the control of the people, the army and the popular committees," Sayyed al-Houthi said.
Sayyed al-Houthi said that "the aggression forces claim that Iran's missiles come through the port of Hodeidah, although all ships entering the port are strictly inspected by both the United Nations and the coalition in Djibouti."
"More than 400 items of essential goods have been banned by the aggression forces from entering the port without any fair justification," he added.
"We target battleships that threaten the Yemeni coast and back the coalition aggression on Hodeidah," Sayyed al-Houthi explained.
He underlined that the coalition's air bombing on headquarters of humanitarian and relief organizations is what poses a threat to relief work in Yemen.
Sayyed al-Houthi described the position of the coalition forces in the western coast as miserable, saying that they are "besieged and targeted at every moment."
"All the field penetrations will remain confrontable, and our will will never be broken," Sayyed said.
