"What is happening in Yemen is a warning to the Al Saud and the Al Khalif as it shows nations’ continued struggle against dictatorial governments and mercenaries of the global arrogance until victory," Jordanian political researcher Ali Abdollah said in an interview with FNA on Saturday.
He underlined that Saudi Arabia and its allies cannot suppress the revolutionary movement of Yemen because the Yemeni people have made their decisions with full information and are resolved to continue their path in defense of their revolution.
Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for nine days now to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. According to a report recently released by the United Nations, 10 days of Saudi-led aggression against Yemen has killed at least 539 people, including hundreds of women and children. Another 1,700 people have also been wounded over the past two weeks.
Hadi stepped down in January and refused to reconsider the decision despite calls by Ansarullah revolutionaries of the Houthi movement.
Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi warplanes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
Abdel Bari Atwan, the editor-in-chief of the Arabic-language Rai al-Youm newspaper, wrote in an article on Saturday that "Any ground aggression on Yemen by Saudi Arabia and its allies will be like a political suicide for them, because Ansarullah and the Yemeni army are fully prepared for a ground battle".
He noted that Ansarullah and the Yemeni army are waiting for Saudi Arabia’s ground invasion to give the Al Saud regime and its allies a crushing response.
Atwan said that Ansarullah fighters are very good at guerilla war and they know that if Riyadh launches a ground incursion into Yemen, it will definitely lose the war.
