Sana’a (AMA) – While the US-Saudi aggression has intensified its massacres, the great Yemeni People stand strong and the Yemeni Army and Committees continue to develop their military capabilities.
Yemenis, led by the leader of the revolution, Sayyed Abdul Malik Al-Houthi, undoubtedly realized the magnitude of the challenge imposed on Yemen by the barbaric and illegal aggression, which came to occupy Yemen and enslave Yemenis under the pretext of supporting pro-government and fighting Iranian influence.
This US-Saudi-British-UAE aggression against Yemen started four years ago during the collapse of the Arab official system and national security led to this colonization and the loss of the minimum solidarity among their people in various issues and crises.
Sayyed Abdul-Malik Al-Houthi, a few hours after the start of the US-Saudi aggression, outlined the main tracks for the steadfastness of the Yemeni People in a long-term battle. Directing a message to the aggressors who dream to invade Yemen.
“Whatever were the size of their forces and the US support, their battle will not be easy and that the Yemeni defending his independence will prove once again that Yemen is a cemetery for the invaders as it was proved in the past.”
Developing missiles system comes as a deterrent after nearly four years of persistent attacks on civilians. Sayyed Abdulmalik Al-Houthi vowed in September 2017 to fire more missiles into Saudi Arabia unless it stops bombing the country.
“We could target Saudi oil tankers and we could do anything,” he said, adding that Yemen’s ballistic missiles were capable of reaching the United Arab Emirates’ capital of Abu Dhabi and anywhere inside Saudi Arabia.
In his speech on March 26, 2019, Sayyed Abdulmalik announced that the “fifth” year is the year of development of military capabilities and that “Yemen possesses important technologies at the level of military manufacturing that are not owned by Saudi Arabia and the UAE, considering that this year will be a year of victories and fortifying the internal arena.”

The Rocketry Force of the Army and Popular Committees unveiled a new Ballistic Missile, Badr F, on April 16, which is simulated of the Russian Toshka missile. Brigadier General Yahia Sare’e said in a press conference that “the Rocketry Force succeeded in developing and manufacturing a new ballistic missile. The missile carries the specifications of the Russian Toshka missile.”
The missile, which is part of the Badr ballistic missile system, has a range of 160 km, explodes at a height of 20 meters above ground, and spreads 14 thousand fragments in a beam of 350 meters.
The Borkan 2 long-range ballistic missiles reached Aramco oil facility in Jizan as well as other undisclosed targets inside Saudi territory. The smart missile Badr P-1, the missile that announced prior to the Badr F, is one of the triumphs of the Yemeni military industry with quality specifications and precise ability to hit the target accurately.
In the fourth anniversary of steadfastness against aggression, the spokesman of the Armed Forces, Brigadier Yahya Sare’e, announced that Yemen is capable of launching dozens of domestically-designed ballistic missiles simultaneously on aggression targets and that the military manufacturing unit is constantly evolving the domestic industry.
“We have ballistic missile systems able to hit targets accurately without being intercepted by enemy systems” He confirmed.

The curse of Yemeni ballistic missiles continues to haunt the enemies.
The US-Saudi-UAE aggression stands helpless trying to destroy or limit the missiles launch and development capabilities. Even Washington’s most advanced Patriot missile defense system was neutralized and no longer effective in the face of the updated Yemeni ballistic missiles. In turn, such missiles have changed the military equation and made them stand at the top of the list of the enemies targeting list.
Although the forces of the US-Saudi aggression sought to weaken the Yemeni military defense system, the Yemeni Army and Popular Committees were able to withstand, turning the equation of confrontation in their favor by relying on modern defense and offensive systems.
Brigadier Yahya Sare’e said that the Air Defenses have succeeded in downing over 19 Apache helicopters in the four years while more than 86 missions were successfully dealt. The Coastal Defense forces have managed to achieve 19 qualitative operations against warships and battleships over the past years.
In the last speech of Sayyed Abdulmalik Al-Houthi, the UAE and Saudi Arabia were warned, saying that “as the Aggression escalates in Hodiedah, the depth of the aggression countries in return will be targeted.”
The facts on the field during the four years reflected important transformations in these simple capabilities that were able to reverse the confrontation equation a few months after the war began from defense to attack. Hence, the US-Saudi aggression failed to achieve any important field result or achieve any of its objectives set at the beginning of the war for more than four years to no avail.
The aggression on Yemen has no choice but to give up or, at least, concede a political settlement which the Yemeni national side (the Army and Popular Committees) has always called for and supported.
The countries of this aggression — first and foremost the US and Saudi Arabia — must stop the perseverance and think with logic and positiveness. It must go towards sincere negotiations and a political settlement today before tomorrow. The US-Saudi Aggression still believes that if they exert a little more military pressure, Yemen will collapse and then they will be able to end the war but we have four years of evidence to refute that.
