A member of Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission said Saudi Arabia has lost the war in Yemen, given that the kingdom has not achieved the objectives of its strikes against the impoverished country.   

“Saudi Arabia intended to occupy Yemen in a couple of days,” Mohammad Reza Mohseni told reporters, adding not only it has not succeeded in doing so, on the contrary Ansarullah forces have taken control of most parts of the war-hit country, IRNA reported on Sunday.  

The lawmaker described the Saudi-led military campaign against Yemen as an “unwise” and “reckless” measure that has led to the killing of the innocent people of Yemen and destruction of its infrastructures.  

A coalition of Arab states has been bombarding Yemen since late March to reinstate power to the country’s former president Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi, who has fled to Riyadh.

“With the support and arms it received from the Zionists and arrogant powers, Saudi Arabia started a proxy war in the region,” Mohseni said, adding that the Saudis will severely suffer as a consequence of their hasty actions.   

He said the United States has decreased its provision of arms to Saudi Arabia after witnessing the recent developments, but the Arab country is still continuing to violate the ceasefire called by the warring parties.  

Fighting near the southern Yemeni city of Aden killed 35 people on Sunday, in breach of a temporary humanitarian truce brokered by the United Nations, according to Reuters.

A weeklong pause in the fighting was meant to have started on Saturday to allow aid deliveries to the country’s 21 million people, who have endured more than three months of bombing and civil war, but there was no sign of any abatement.

The lawmaker also noted that the wave of “Islamic awakening” in the Arab countries of the region keeps raising awareness among Muslim nations.  

Mohammad Saleh Jokar, another member of the parliamentary commission, said the commission will host a meeting with Yemeni combatants on Monday with the aim of discussing ways to improve the situation of the oppressed Yemeni nation.
