Spokesman for the Peaceful Sit-in Committee for the People of AlMahrah, Ali Mubarak Bin Mahamad, confirmed that, “The visit of US ambassador and the commander of the Fifth Fleet confirms all the warnings launched by the sit-in committee about the seriousness of the violation of sovereignty and the legitimacy of the occupation”.

It is working to expand its military presence in the occupied provinces, under the cover of the Saudi and American presence.”
