The Yemeni Armed Forces have state-of-the-art military systems that will be unveiled soon, said the Yemeni Defence Minister of the National Salvation Government

Brigadier General Mohammad Al-Atefi said that the Yemeni Armed Forces have state-of-the-art military systems, some of which are defending Yemen and others will be unveiled in the near future. He added: "These systems will create great changes in the strategy of war and countering the aggressors."

Al-Atefi stressed that Yemen has made tremendous leaps in the manufacturing of light, medium and heavy weapons and surface-to-surface, ballistic, tactical and strategic missiles. 

Mohammad Al-Atefi added that the aggression against Yemen will not be stopped except by force (military power) and his country has this power to defend its nation.

Referring to the US decision to blacklist the Ansarullah movement as a terrorist, Al-Atefi said: "It is in no way permissible and worthy for someone who defends his country and nation to be called a terrorist."

Emphasizing that the Americans themselves are terrorists, the Yemeni Minister of National Defense said that the United States supports the invasion of Yemen, crimes against innocent people, and also the terrorist groups are created by the US.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced on January 11 that the ministry has notified Congress of its decision to place Ansarullah in the "foreign terrorist organization list."

Pompeo's remarks met with widespread reactions from Yemenis and non-Yemeni countries, figures and groups.

Saudi Arabia with the support of the United States, the United Arab Emirates, and several other countries, Saudi Arabia has launched a military invasion of Yemen in March 2015 and since then imposed a land, sea, and air blockade on innocent Yemeni people.

The military aggression has so far resulted in nothing but the killing and wounding of tens of thousands of Yemenis, as well as the displacement of millions of citizens, the destruction of infrastructure, famine and the spread of infectious diseases in the country. 219
