SANAA, Oct 13 (Saba) – A military official on Thursday denied reports alleging that a US. warship was targeted off the Yemeni coasts from territories the army and popular forces control.
"These allegations are unfounded and the army as well popular forces have nothing to do with this action," the official said in a statement received by Saba.
"The U.S. allegations just came in the context of creating false justifications to pave the way for Saudi-led coalition to escalate their aggression attacks against Yemen and to cover for crimes continually committed by the aggression coalition against the Yemeni people and to continue an all-out blockade after refusal stances have been increasing against such heinous crimes on the Yemeni people," said the official.
He reaffirmed that the army and popular forces are in full readiness to confront any future aggression against the country under whatever justification.
