Yemeni Ansarullah fighters are determined to carry out retaliatory strikes against Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates in response to their continued aggression against Yemen, says a commentator.

Yemen's Joint Operations Command Center has released footage verifying a retaliatory attack in July 2018 on the Abu Dhabi International Airport. The UAE is Saudi Arabia’s key ally in its deadly war against Yemen, a devastating military campaign that has killed thousands of Yemeni people since it began March 2015.

In an interview with Press TV on Thursday night, Yemeni journalist and political analyst Yousef Mawry said that Yemen will continue to do what it takes to stop the aggression and an ongoing aerial and maritime blockade, which threaten lives of millions of the Yemeni people.

“Chaos and instability is what awaits these nations (Saudi Arabia and the UAE) if they continue this aggression on Yemen,” Mawry warned.

The analyst also emphasized that the Yemeni fighters “do have a capability to conduct a number of military operations.”

Yemeni armed forces launched another retaliatory drone strike against an airport in Saudi Arabia’s southwestern Najran region on Wednesday morning.

A day earlier, the Yemeni resistance launched a counterattack on an arms depot inside the same airport, using a Qasef-2K combat drone. The strike caused a fire at the airport.

In mid-May, the Yemeni army launched drone raids on a major oil pipeline deep inside the Saudi kingdom in retaliation for the regime’s war crimes against Yemen, forcing state crude giant Aramco to temporarily stop pumping oil on the pipeline.

The Ansarullah movement warned on Sunday that those strikes were the start of operations against 300 vital targets in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates — a key member of the Saudi-led coalition waging war on Yemen — as well as positions inside Yemen, where the foreign aggressors and their allied Yemeni militants hold bases.
