(MENAFN - Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) RIYADH, June 18 (KUNA) -- The Spokesman of forces for Arab Coalition for the Support of Legitimacy in Yemen Colonel Turki Al-Malki confirmed on Monday that military operations carried out by the Yemeni army and the resistance forces supported by the command of the coalition forces continue to achieve successes and victories on many fronts inside Yemen.
In a press conference, Al-Malki said the continued progress was made in a thoughtful way, in various axes and sites in Hodeidah, Saada, Medi, Hajjah and Nhm, which contributed to the imposition of control on these fronts, referring to the heavy losses suffered by the Iran-backed Houthi terrorist coup militia, which led to the decline and tearing up of its ranks, which made them unable to withstand, or deal with this very critical situation.
Al-Malki added, in a letter from the command of the coalition forces to the Yemeni people, that the Yemeni citizen should be alerted to the lies propagated by this Iran-backed sectarian terrorist militia, and its claim that it controls the military position.
On the progress achieved by the coalition forces and the Yemeni army and the resistance forces in both Hodeidah and Saada, the spokesman of said that the control of Hodeidah airport is very imminent, especially after the control of the main ways of the city, stressing that the port of Hodeidah is a strategic military target through which these terrorist militias receive the weapons provided to them from Iran to deliberately provoke chaos and corruption in Yemen, and continue tampering through the acts of terrorism and threatening maritime navigation in the Straits of Bab Al-Mandab.
Al-Malki referred to the process and the political efforts in Yemen, the most recent of which was the visit of Martin Griffith to Yemen in early June, during which he met with the Yemeni President Abd Rabbo Mansour Hadi and some representatives of the countries of the region, before moving to Sana'a.
His efforts and various initiatives within the general framework for finding a political solution in Yemen were rejected by the Houthi militias, which is similar to the efforts of the former UN envoy Ismail Ould Sheikh Ahmed, which were unable to find a solution to the Yemeni crisis because of the rejection of Huthi militias and lack of care or interest in finding solutions on the ground to get out of the Yemeni crisis, by prioritizing the interest of the Yemeni people.
Al-Malki added that all this was stated in the recent briefing of the Security Council from the former UN envoy Ismail Ould Sheikh Ahmed, in which he explicitly stated the rejection of the Houthi militias of all political efforts and deliberately obstructed the political solution, referring to Resolution 2140 on obstructers of the political process in Yemen and the existence of some names of the Houthi militias on the list of those responsible for disrupting and obstructing the political solution.
