Yemen's Vice President General Ali Mohsen al-Ahmar said the Houthis are suffering a setback, noting that the legitimacy and the Saudi-led Arab Coalition have plans to liberate every inch of Yemeni territories from the armed militias.

Ahmar stated that Iran exported its revolution and destruction to Yemen and its people, noting that Tehran tore apart the Yemeni community, the region and the Arab countries confessionally.

Iran has also a plan to shake security and stability, in addition to having hostile intentions to establish a Persian state.

On the sidelines of his visit to King Salman Center for Relief and Humanitarian Work (KSRelief) on Thursday, he said that history will remember the humanitarian work of the Saudi leadership, government, people and the center.

On the battlefield, Ahmar said: “The enemy is defeated.

He lauded efforts of the center in sheltering the displaced and treating the wounded as well as contributing to combating cholera. 

KSRelief General Supervisor Dr. Abdullah al-Rabiah, in his turn, presented a detailed explanation of the center’s efforts in Yemen. He said following the directives of Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the center prioritizes humanitarian aid and relief work in Yemen.

The biggest evidence in that regard is that 85 percent of the center’s projects are focused on alleviating the suffering of the Yemeni people.

Saudi Arabia has so far allocated more than USD10.9 billion to Yemen in various aspects, Rabiah stated.
