The chief commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) hails the Yemeni people’s successful resistance and defense of their country in the face invaders and their supporters, most prominently the US and Saudi Arabia.

“Today, what we can see is no longer a dangerous America, but a defeated, fleeing, and despondent America,” Major General Hossein Salami said on Sunday.

“Neither can the Saudi regime be no longer seen as a regime that is still capable of attacking a defenseless nation such as Yemen in all possible ways,” he added.

“The voices of these powers are dying,” Salami said.

The IRGC chief was speaking of the way the Yemeni nation and their defenders have been neutralizing a now-seven-year-old invasion by Saudi Arabia and its allies.

The war has unsuccessfully been trying to restore power in Yemen to the Saudi kingdom and the US’s favorite officials. Washington has been backing up the war efforts with generous arms, logistical, and political support.

Yemen’s army and Popular Committees, the country’s combined defense forces, have, however, been retaliating resolutely in the face of the aggression.

A countless number of Yemeni rockets and missiles have been passing right through Saudi Arabia’s US-procured missile systems, flying as far as the Saudi capital Riyadh and the United Arab Emirates, a fellow invader.

Last Sunday, and amid the American-made equipment’s continued failure in the face of the Yemeni projectiles, the Associated Press reported that the United States had surprisingly removed the Terminal High Altitude Air Defense (THAAD), called the most advanced American projectile interception system, and its Patriot missile batteries from the Saudi capital Riyadh’s outskirts.

Salami separately expressed delight that the Iranian nation’s resistance too had helped them weather all pressures.

“Inside our own country, despite all natural or imposed pressures, the Iranian nation have been engaged in resistance [too]. And now, these obstacles are being removed, the adversities are giving way to easier times, and the roads are being paved,” he said.

The entire world is now envying this nation that has been successfully standing up to great powers for more than four decades, the commander said.

“Iran’s name is identified with grandeur, compassion, advancement, integrity, and unity,” he stated, and also hailed the Iranian people’s strong emotional bond with Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei.
