Saudi Ambassador to Washington Prince Khalid bin Salman bin Abdulaziz has said that the Kingdom will not allow the Houthi insurgents to become another “Hezbollah.”
“Among the much ignored realities in Yemen is not only the direct assistance the Houthi militia receives from the Iranian regime, but also the existence of Hezbollah commanders on the ground,” he said in a tweet.
“Their presence in Yemen confirms the Iranian regime has subcontracted the Houthi militia to another one of its proxies; Hezbollah. It proves the regime’s proxies work in tandem to undermine regional stability and prolong the suffering of countries they are involved in,” said the diplomat.
A previous raid on a Houthi site by Arab Coalition Special Forces uncovered a cache of evidence against Houthis. It revealed a ‘Hezbollah’ operative training and advising them on asymmetric warfare, and showed background portrait of Iran’s Supreme Leader on the computer, he said in another tweet.
The video shows the ‘Hezbollah’ operative in Yemen advising the insurgents to use deception tactics such as water tanks to store weapons, and smuggling fighters in civilian vehicles, endangering the lives of Yemeni civilians, Prince Khalid said.
“This cache of evidence (among others) confirms the ideological and military connection the Houthis and Hezbollah have to the Iranian regime. The militants can be heard at the end chanting their hateful slogans of death,” the ambassador added.
