Vastavam web: Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said today that Yemenis would make those attacking their country regret their actions as a Saudi-led coalition pounded the rebel-held capital with heavy air strikes.”The people of Yemen will make their aggressors regret their actions,” Rouhani said in a televised speech.Saleh had recently broken his uneasy three-year-old alliance with the Huthis and said he was open to talks with the Saudis.
“The traitor Saudis are seeking to create insecurity in the region under orders from the United States and working alongside Israel We witnessed their attempt to launch a coup against (the Huthis), which was strangled at birth,” Jafari said, according to the Fars news agency.Saudi Arabia, Iran’s main regional rival, has been leading a coalition against the Huthis in a war that has cost thousands of lives and become the world’s worst humanitarian crisis according to the United Nations.
“Some Islamic countries have shamelessly revealed their closeness to the Zionist regime,” Rouhani said.”If some of these countries in the previous years were engaged in negotiations, interaction and cooperation in secret with the enemies of Islam in the region, at least they would deny it in public. Such relations were considered ugly, detestable, sinister and indecent.
Israel’s armed forces chief said last month that his country and Saudi Arabia were in “total agreement” that Iran was the greatest threat to the Middle East.Lieutenant General Gadi Eisenkot added that the Jewish state was “ready to exchange experience with the moderate Arab countries and exchange intelligence information to face Iran.”
