Houthi Military Spokesman Brigadier Yahya Saree Threatens the "Glass Towers" of Abu Dhabi and Dubai, Adds: We Have Dozens of Targets in the UAE

Houthi military spokesman Brigadier Yahya Saree said in a September 18, 2019 press conference that aired on the Houthi Al-Masirah TV (Yemen) that the Yemeni armed forces are "determined to carry out widespread and large-scale operations" against the "coalition of aggression and the forces of evil" that are led by Saudi Arabia and the UAE. He emphasized that Houthi forces will not hesitate to "deal an immediate and exceptional" response against these countries if they do not stop their "aggression" against Yemen. He declared that the Houthis' target bank includes dozens of targets in the UAE, including Abu Dhabi and Dubai, and he warned that the UAE leadership will regret it if they order a retaliation attack against Yemen in the coming days and weeks. Brigadier Saree added: "If you want peace and security for your installations and glass towers, which cannot withstand an attack by even a single drone, then you should leave Yemen to its own devices. You should take this warning seriously."

Following are excerpts:

 

Brigadier Yahya Saree: Today, the Yemeni armed forces stand glorious, powerful, and resolute against the coalition of aggression and the forces of evil. We emphasize that we will not hesitate to deal an immediate and exception response to the countries of aggression, headed by Saudi Arabia and the UAE, if they do not stop this aggression and lift the siege. To the UAE regime we say: One single operation would cost you dearly. The [UAE] leadership will regret it if they order their armed forces to carry out a retaliation attack in the coming days and weeks. Indeed, this would cost them dearly. Today, we declare for the first time that our target bank includes dozens of targets in the UAE, including in Abu Dhabi and Dubai. These locations may be targeted at any time.

You should take this warning seriously, now more than ever. Today, we are more determined to carry out widespread and large-scale operations in order to end the aggression.
