US Shedding Crocodile Tears for Yemen, Says Ansarullah

US approach towards Yemen is like a crocodile shedding tears while devouring its prey, a member of Yemen's Ansarullah political council said on Wednesday.

In an exclusive interview with the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA), Abdul Wahab al-Mahbashi said US request from the aggressors to end the war in Yemen has fanned the flames of the conflict.

The request put forward by the US Secretary of Defense aimed at diverting public attention from the role of the United States in the aggression against Yemen, he added.

 Ansarullah official said Jim Mattis threatened the Yemeni people and the aggressors to accept Washington's conditions and to end the conflict within one month or else the United States will do everything in its power to get rid of the war in Yemen; an action which stoke the conflict.

Al-Mahbashi went on to say in case the aggressors fail to achieve success over a predetermined time, the US will jump out of Saudi Arabia's sinking ship.

He said the enemy is disappointed with military achievement and one month is a chance offered by Washington to replace the war with a deadly siege which will only be completed through occupation of al-Hudaydah, Yemen's lifeline port city.

In a bid to disrupt humanitarian flows through the port city in western Yemen and to bring Yemenis to their knees, Riyadh launches horrible attacks on al-Hudaydah, hence pushing innocent people to the brink of famine.

Over the past three and a half years, a coalition of several Arab countries led by Saudi Arabia have turned a deaf ear to the warnings about the deteriorating humanitarian situation and have launched assaults on the impoverished Yemen under the pretext of restoring power to the ousted Riyadh-friendly president Mansour Hadi.

 The incursion has claimed the lives of thousands of innocent people, displacing million others and razing the Arab nation to the ground..
