The US-British-Zionist movements in the occupied southern regions, including the public appearance of the US occupier in Al-Mahra governorate and his meeting with mercenaries, showed the great danger that threatens Yemen and its people, and the plans of the arrogant and colonial countries to occupy it and plunder its wealth.
These moves, which come with the blessing of the Saudi-backed government, met with massive popular indignation.
The Executive Board of the Alliance of Political Parties and Forces against Aggression condemned the US and British moves in the southern and eastern regions of the occupied Yemeni territories.
In a statement, the Executive Board considered that these visits and movements are a practical embodiment of the occupation and external aggression of Yemeni lands and a betrayal of national sovereignty by the mercenaries for decades, who recruit themselves in the service of the enemies of Yemen to achieve their narrow interests.
The Executive Board affirmed its support for the position of Sayyed Abdulmalik Badr al-Din al-Houthi, who clarified and revealed the plans of the forces of aggression from the first day. In his last speech, he affirmed the need to complete the battle of liberation and comprehensive independence, and to purify the Yemeni lands from the filth of the invaders of their various affiliations.
The statement of the Executive Board held the tools of aggression from the agents and traitors, who support the projects of hegemony over Yemen and the plundering of the people’s wealth, fully responsible for any agreements affecting the wealth and strategic sites. It considered all agreements and treaties, which are carried out by those, null and void and have no legal effect in light of the aggression and siege.
For its part, the Southern National Front for Confronting the Invasion and Occupation warned of the dangers of repeated US visits to the governorates of Hadramout and Al-Mahra.
The Front considered the visits of the US ambassador and military leaders in the Central Command of the US Navy to Al-Mahrah as a flagrant violation of Yemeni sovereignty and an act condemned by international norms and ancestors.
“The visit of the US delegation to the city of Al-Ghaydah comes as a continuation of the American colonial moves to the southern governorates, and confirms that the American project in Yemen is colonial, not a peace project,” it said.
It held the countries involved in aggression and their mercenaries, responsible for any new foreign military presence on the Yemeni islands in the Arabian Sea. It emphasized the right of the national forces to prosecute the mercenaries who provided cover for that presence that harms the independence and sovereignty of Yemen.
The statement called on the United Nations to condemn the US military interventions that violate international laws and push towards disturbing peace and returning to the war square.
“The US visits require preparation for the battle of sovereignty and independence, on whose side all the free Yemeni people will stand,” it added. It stressed that America’s ambitions in the southern provinces and its colonial projects will be met by force if it does not leave and raise its military presence from all Yemeni lands.
The National Front called on the free people of the southern governorates to reject the American presence in Hadramout, Al-Mahra and Socotra, warning against the consequences of establishing any military bases on the eastern coasts of the country.
For its part, the Yemen Scholars Association announced its condemnation and rejection of the American presence and action in the occupied southern governorate.
In a statement, the Association condemned the visit of the US Fifth Fleet Commander to Mahra and the Zionist presence on Abd al-Kuri Island. It called on all Yemenis in the occupied and free areas to unite, close ranks and fight against the invaders.
Yemen scholars affirmed the right of the Yemeni People, represented by their leadership, national army, Roktery and Air Forces, to target a foreign presence.
The US military moves in the governorates of Al-Mahra and Hadramout have escalated significantly and provocatively during the recent period, in parallel with the efforts of US to thwart peace efforts and circumvent the demands of the Yemeni People and the requirements for a solution, including the complete departure of foreign forces from Yemen.
