Mohammad Ali Qudspour, the Iranian regime Supreme Leader’s representative in Semnan, said during the Friday prayers: “A lot of work is being done. It is true that only 30% of Yemen’s soil is taken by the Ansarullah [also known as the Houthis], but 70% of the Yemeni population lives in that area.”

According to the local Semnan TV, he added: “If we succeed to conquer Maarib, where they already have captured 12 of the 14 cities, then I will kiss the hands of the fathers of the martyrs here.

If Maarib is conquered in Yemen today, it is because of the efforts and the result of the sacrifices that you, the fathers of the martyrs and the mothers of the martyrs actually had made.”
