The leader of Yemen’s Houthi Ansarullah movement has said that Saudi Arabia is seeking to sow discord among the Muslim Ummah in order to turn them into indecisive people who can be “exploited”.
Abdul Malik Badreddin al-Houthi made the remarks on Saturday, addressing the Yemeni people, Yemen’s al-Ahd news agency reported.
In his message, Houthi felicitated the Yemeni people on the occasion of the start of the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan.
He noted that Riyadh was the leading regime among the “regional hypocrites, which only seek destruction and sedition to execute American and Zionist plots.”
It came after U.S. President Donald Trump’s visit to Saudi Arabia during which Trump signed an arms deal with the Saudis to sell Riyadh $110 billion worth of arms.
Houthi said the deal was also to the benefit of the Israeli regime, urging the Yemeni nation to empower their faith to confront the challenges facing them, especially the plots of the “Saudi-American invaders.”
Since 2015, Saudi Arabia has been waging a war on Yemen in order to reinstall the country’s former president who was Riyadh’s close ally.
Riyadh’s invasion has ever since killed thousands of Yemeni civilians and caused a widespread famine across the country.
