SANA’A – Brigadier General Amir Hatami, the Minister of Defence of the Islamic Republic of Iran, has praised the Yemeni resistance against Saudi-led invasion in a recent speech. The minister furthermore stressed that Iran gives moral support to the Yemeni struggle, but plays no active role in the conflict.
“Iran’s support for the Yemeni People is moral support only. It is the steadfastness of the Yemeni people that has led to the defeat of the Saudi-American war in Yemen,” Hatami said on Saturday.
“Yemen is now a thorn in the eyes of the Americans, and stands in front of a big conspiracy,” the General continued.
“The Saudi regime, a killer of children, waged a war on Yemen through the formation of a coalition, but the Yemeni tactical fighting led to Yemen’s ability to stand in front of the enemy. It came to the Americans to accuse Iran by lies, saying that it is Iran who prevented them from winning in Yemen. They believe that the reason for the steadfastness of the Yemeni People is Iran’s support, but our support is only moral support. The real resistance is that one of the people, who are not willing to submit to American injustice. That is what leads to victory.”
