Spokesman of Sana’a forces, Brigadier General Yahya Sarie, in a press conference, on Sunday, revealed the relations between the former regime in Yemen and Israel.
“In 2007, the relationship between the Saleh government and the “Zionist entity” reached a high level of communication, coordination and exchange of visits at several levels,” Brigadier General Yahya Sarie said During a press conference held in Sana’a.
He stressed that “the battle today is a fatal battle, and standing in the face of Saudi-led coalition is meant to stand against Israeli plans and its mercenaries.”
The spokesman of Sana’a forces detailed the steps of the former regime’s relations with Israel and the conspiratorial scheme against the Yemeni country in which it had enabled the Israel to achieve all its goals and plans.
According to Sarie, Yemen had been, and continues to be, a target of Israeli policies and a field of Zionist activities and movements.
“Yemen is still present in the “US-Zionist” strategic mentality, and the current “aggression” is the latest clear evidence of such plots and conspiracies” Sarie said.
“Today, the armed forces reveal to the Yemeni people information for the first time that shows the plan to hand over Yemen to the “Israeli enemy”. This information confirms that today we are confronting an aggression that seeks by all means to achieve Israeli objectives in our country.”
“The most prominent facts that should be revealed today are the conspiratorial schemes against our country that enable the Israel to achieve all its objectives and plans through the secret relationship with the former President Ali Abdullah Saleh, as well as the meetings and the most prominent files on the table of meetings, discussions and correspondence either directly or through intermediaries,” he explained.
Yahya Sarie pointed out that the Israeli interest in Yemen is not limited to Bab al-Mandab, the Red Sea, the Yemeni islands or the west coast only, but also extends to the economic, cultural, agricultural, security and military aspects.
“All this confirms the growing relationship between the former President Ali Abdullah Saleh and the Israeli entity, leading to the exchange of visits at different levels, as well as the existence of continuous direct and indirect contacts between the two sides, and the continuation of the relationship until the post-Gulf initiative and its transition to the existing authority until the start of the war against Yemen march 26, 2015,” he said.
“After the war, the puppet government moved to implement advanced steps towards public normalization of relations with the Israeli enemy.” He concluded.
