'Yemeni fighters capable of damaging Saudi security'
Retaliatory attacks by Yemeni fighters against positions in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) show Yemenis’ capability to damage security in the two countries, says an academic.
After three years of deadly Saudi-led airstrikes on Yemen, the Yemeni army, supported by popular Houthi Ansarullah movement, has launched rocket attacks on Saudi Arabia and the UAE.
Jamal Wakim, professor at the Lebanese International University, told Press TV on Wednesday that “the escalation and retaliation by the Yemeni side is a sign of their capacity to damage security of Saudi Arabia and of the UAE.”
“This is also a sign of their capacity to resist the Saudi and Emirati assault on Yemen,” and at the same time a sign of the “incapacity of Saudi” to impose their will on the Yemeni people, Wakim said.
