TEHRAN (Press Shia) – Yemen’s Army Spokesman Brigadier General Sharaf Luqman condemned recent attacks against the Arabian Peninsula country by the Saudi-led coalition, including the United Arab Emirates (UAE), and threatened to launch missiles against Abu Dhabi and Dubai.
Speaking to Saba news agency, Brigadier General Luqman pointed to the recent escalation of fighting in Yemen’s west coast region and said that Abu Dhabi will be no longer safe from now on.
The city is within the reach of the Yemeni missiles, he said, adding that investors in Dubai and Abu Dhabi should take his remarks seriously.
He further emphasized that the UAE measures in the west coast will face a more powerful and unpredictable response by the Yemeni army and Popular committees.
The threats came amid reported advances by UAE-backed militants on the crucial port city of Hodeidah in western Yemen.
Last week, the missile command of Yemen’s army and Popular Committees fired several ballistic missiles at the mercenaries’ positions in the west coast region.
The attacks against the Saudi forces came in retaliation for the continued massacre of civilians and destruction of Yemen’s infrastructure by the coalition led by the Riyadh regime.
Yemen’s defenseless people have been under massive attacks by the coalition for more than three years but Riyadh has reached none of its objectives in Yemen so far.
Since March 2015, Saudi Arabia and some of its Arab allies have been carrying out deadly airstrikes against the Houthi Ansarullah movement in an attempt to restore power to fugitive former president Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.
