Political Analyst: Saudi Arabia Fighting US Proxy War in Yemen


A senior political analyst underlined that the Riyadh government is fighting a war on behalf of Washington in Yemen.

“Saudi Arabia is implementing the US plans in the region,” Syrian Journalist and Political Analyst Nezal Naisseh told FNA on Wednesday.

Naisseh reiterated that Saudi Arabia is engaged in a proxy war in Yemen, and said, “Saudi Arabia cannot commit such crimes in Yemen without the US help.”

He, meantime, blasted the international bodies’ silence about the ongoing Saudi crimes in Yemen and Syria, and said, “It is the US that is committing the crimes in Yemen; how can it condemn itself or Saudi Arabia which is its staunch ally in the region.”

The Syrian analyst said that those who command and support terrorism in Syria are directing the terrorist acts in Yemen.

In May, a prominent Syrian analyst said that Saudi Arabia is troubling peace talks on Yemen through its continued attacks on the poor Arab country.

Speaking to FNA, Wael al-Hassan said the Saudi attacks on Yemen had grown more and more barbaric, and the Saudis had even blocked delivery of humanitarian aids to Yemen systematically in a bid to pressure the Yemeni people more.

Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 154 days now to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 5,529 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.

Hadi stepped down in January and refused to reconsider the decision despite calls by Ansarullah revolutionaries of the Houthi movement.

Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi warplanes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
