Sayyed Abdulmalik made the remarks in a speech broadcast live from the Yemeni capital of Sana’a on Tuesday to commemorate the eighth anniversary of the September 21 revolution against a Saudi-backed regime in the country and its removal from power.
“The September 21 Revolution, from the religious, moral and national point of view, was and still is a requisite [for the country] and benefits our nation,” he said. “The revolutionary movement was broad in its title, goals, and popular momentum, and it did not belong to a specific group but rather to all Yemeni people.”
Stressing that the Yemeni revolution took place at the time when American policies held sway in the country, the Leader said such policies plunged Yemen into total destruction and the US tried to use the conflicts at the beginning of the revolution to its own advantage.
“Before the revolution, the American ambassador was the president of Yemen,” he said, adding, “The Americans tried to exploit the independence of our nation and dominate our country indirectly and without war. The American plot was based on increasing the political divide in line with the internal disintegration of our country.”
Sayyed Abdulmalik said the United States adopted a destructive policy for Yemen and did not care about the interests of the Yemeni people, adding, “Washington was working to escalate chaos in Yemen, and it was the movement of the Yemeni people that thwarted the plots of the United States and its allies.”
The Leader said the US was working to strip the Yemeni army of its military capabilities, and that Washington had turned its embassy in Sana’a into a headquarters for managing all sabotage activities in Yemen.
“All Yemeni parties were sure that what the American ambassador in Sana’a was doing represented a clear violation of the country’s sovereignty and independence,” Sayyed Abdulmalik said. “There were Yemeni political parties that were responding to American demands, but the movement of the Yemeni people left the Americans confused.”
He said the aggression against Yemen revealed the reality of those who want to continue their domination over it and that of their hostile policy.
“The aggression targeted government facilities and service facilities, which shows the American intentions to destroy everything in our country,” he said. “The coalition of aggression destroyed all infrastructure, and targeted even courts, prisons, cemeteries, schools and others.”
Elsewhere in his speech, the Leader of the Revolution lashed out at a move by a few Arab countries to normalize their relations with the Israeli regime, saying Yemen stood against such a US-inspired move.
“Washington and its allies are seeking to bring about change in the region, under the title of normalization and the loyalty of Arab regimes to Israel," he said. “Yemen stood against the path of normalization and stood by the Palestinian cause and the free people of the nation against its enemies.”
In 2014, the people of Yemen led a popular uprising against the Saudi-backed unpopular regime of Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi.
As protests gripped the country, Ansarallah on September 21 took control of the capital Sana’a following a rapid advance south from their northern stronghold of Sa'adah.
The massively popular protests were against the incompetent and corrupt regime in Sana’a backed by Riyadh.
In a bid to crush the resistance and reinstall the Hadi regime, a Saudi-led coalition launched a ferocious bombing campaign on the neighboring Arab country barely six months later.
