SANA’A -Yemeni army spokesman Brigadier Yahya Sare’e has on Tuesday said that Saudi-led coalition forces and mercenaries have committed 1,594 violations of the ceasefire during August and September, bringing the total number to 30,597 violations since the Stockholm Agreement was signed.
During a press conference held on Tuesday afternoon in Sana’a, Brigadier General Sare’e said: “the army forces and popular committees have carried out their obligations according to the Stockholm Agreement, and now the other party has to implement its obligations.”
He pointed out that the army forces and popular committees might be forced to respond to attacks on citizens of Hodeidah by targeting posts and sensitive positions of the enemy on the western coast.
“Any military escalation will respond to, and every attack will be met with the same level and size,” the spokesman declared.
He explained that the suffocating siege came at the head of hostilities and is considered as a military action. “We have the right to take the necessary steps to lift the siege, including military strikes in the depth of the enemy.”
“We reiterate that the talk on peace cannot be combined with the continuation of the siege, which causes the death of many of Yemeni people,” the spokesman concluded.
