Yemen will be Saudi Arabia’s quagmire: Iranian MP

Mansour Haghighat Pour

Undoubtedly, the Saudis launched the attacks on Yemen in coordination with America, Haghighatpour said.

Deputy Chairman of parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Committee Mansour Haghighatpour Thursday denounced Saudi airstrikes on Yemen and said, “The Yemeni people will turn their country into a quagmire for aggressors. Riyadh has taken a huge gamble which will definitely result in a loss and the consequences of such action will come back to haunt the Saudis.”

The official was quoted by Mehr News Agency as saying, “The Saudi airstrikes in Yemen are a mischievous move that cannot sustain, because Saudi forces won’t dare set foot on Yemeni soil.”

He went on to say, “Today, you will bear witness to a show of might by the Yemeni nation in Sana’a and Riyadh must be ready to pay the price for its abominable acts.”

Haghighatpour added Saudi Arabia took this abhorrent action with the backing of the US. “Undoubtedly, the Saudis launched attacks on Yemen in coordination with America, but they should know that gone are the times of such aggressive measures, because Washington and Riyadh have already had the experience of Syria and Iraq, and in the end regional nations will emerge victorious.”
