Dozens of dead and wounded…and Hadi threatens the putschists to pay the price
Yesterday, the Houthi militia committed a massacre at the Al-Anad military base, north of Aden, which left dozens of victims dead and wounded.
According to identical Yemeni military and medical sources, more than 42 Yemeni government forces stationed at the military base, which is the largest in the country, were killed in the Houthi attack with missiles and drones. At Ibn Khaldoun Hospital in Lahj, to which some of the dead and wounded were taken, the director of the hospital, Mohsen Morshed, confirmed to AFP: “We summoned the entire staff, surgeons, and nursing staff.” “We learned that there are still bodies under the rubble,” he added.
An officer named Muhammad, one of the battalions’ trainers at the base, said: “We were gathered inside the hangar, and we saw a plane that they were shooting at to try to bring it down, but no one could hit it.” He continued, “I arrived directly over the hangar in which we were and fired the missiles.”
Yemeni President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi vowed that the terrorist Houthi militia would pay a heavy price, and be held accountable for every crime they commit against Yemenis.
Hadi sent a telegram of condolences and sympathy to the families of the officers, non-commissioned officers and soldiers who were martyred in the terrorist operation, which he described as a “cowardly”, which was carried out by the terrorist Houthi militia on the Al-Anad base.
Hadi stressed, according to the official Yemeni news agency (Saba), that the terrorist Houthi militia will pay a heavy price and will be held accountable for every crime it commits against Yemenis, and that the battle of the Yemeni people against the remnants of the Imamate and the Persian project in Yemen is continuing and will soon be crowned with victory.
In addition, Rajeh Badi, a spokesman for the Yemeni government, stressed that “the entire responsibility lies with the Iranian-backed Houthi militias, this bloody attack will have repercussions, and the Yemeni people will not stand by and watch the international condoning and flattering the Houthis, all lands will be liberated and the state will return with all its institutions.” ».
