General Says Turning Point in Yemen Conflict is Close at Hand

Jan , 23 \NewNewss

The armed forces of the Yemeni Revolutionary Government in the Yemeni capital Sana’a have boosted their air defenses to a point where they no longer need to fear airstrikes by Saudi-led coalition forces, army spokesman Sharaf Luqman said, in an interview with Sputnik News.

Brigadier-General Luqman said that the army now has all it needs to repel “enemy aggression” at sea, on the ground and in the air.
“The Yemeni army has taken over many enemy strongholds, which has changed the situation on the battlefield,” the general said.

“These are depots with arms for the Air Force, night-vision cameras, ballistic missiles and launchers. This answers questions about where we are getting weapons amid the current blockade; who who is helping us; and whether Iran is supplying us with ballistic missiles and military advisors,” he added.

He said that in the next few days, the Sana’a army would “greatly surprise” coalition forces.

“This will be commensurate with the attack on the Saudi’s Al-Dabaa military base [in the southern Najran province killing all Saudi military personnel stationed there], and the Panavia Tornado and F-16 planes we shot down,” General Luqman warned.

He said that the “information war” unleashed by the Saudi-led coalition is giving a distorted picture of what is really going on  in Yemen.

“They are trumpeting their imaginary victories. If such victories really had happened and they could prove it, then all global media would have learned about them and reported them,” Sharaf Luqman emphasized.

He said that a peaceful settlement was the only way to end the long-running crisis in Yemen.

“We need a two-pronged negotiating process: on the international track, we need to negotiate with the Arab coalition, and we also need to talk to all forces and movements inside this country,” the Brigadier-General concluded.
