He continued: Any sanctions you impose do not affect us and have no value, and the Yemeni people (meaning the Houthis) are indifferent to the American screams and are consistent in their positions; description limit; In underestimating the US sanctions imposed on military leaders affiliated with the militia.
And he added: Saudi Arabia cannot even manufacture kites, let alone manufacture F-15 and F-16 aircraft; In an indirect mockery of the kingdom, in exchange for a boom that is proud of the Houthi militia’s ability to manufacture drones.
He accused “America of being behind the evil in our country, and it is the one that kills and destroys in Yemen. It is our enemy, and it will always remain our enemy, and we see it only as straw.” as he put it.
