Saudi Arabia’s aggression against Yemen is strengthening terrorist groups such as the Daesh Takfiri militants, says Yemeni Ansarullah Houthi movement.

According to a statement released by the movement on Saturday, Riyadh and its supporters are also responsible for the recent execution of 25 Ansarullah fighters, recently carried out by Takfiri terrorists of Daesh in southwestern Yemen.

Saudi Arabia and its allies in Yemen have taken measures to sabotage attempts to release the Houthi fighters before their grisly executions, the statement further read.

The terrorist group released a video on Friday, showing the brutal execution of the fighters in different ways.

This screen grab from a video released by Daesh Takfiris on December 4, 2015, purportedly shows the terrorists moments before beheading a number of Yemen’s Ansarullah fighters.

Houthi fighters, along with allied army units, are fighting the Takfiris and resisting against the unabated Saudi aggression against Yemen, which began on March 26 in a bid to undermine the Houthi Ansarullah movement and restore power to fugitive former President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, a staunch ally of Riyadh.

Exploiting the chaos in Yemen, Daesh, which is mainly operating in Syria and Iraq, has been able to infiltrate the country.

Meanwhile, Yemeni forces carried out a retaliatory attack against a warship in waters close to the southwestern province of Ta’izz. The ship was tasked with carrying out multiple attacks against residential areas in the province.

This was the sixth naval ship, belonging to the aggressors, that was destroyed by the Yemenis. According to Saudi military sources, the ship belonged to United Arab Emirates’ Navy.
