“The UAE capital Abu Dhabi is a direct military target for ballistic missiles of the Yemeni Missile Force,” he added.
The spokesman of Ansarullah stated that the coming days will witness an escalation in the pace of fighting along the border fronts and will reach the depth of Saudi Arabia in response to the arrogance of the Saudi regime and its continued war against Yemen.
He renewed the readiness of Ansarullah for dialogue, calling upon the parties internally and externally, and explaining that the UN envoy to Yemen Ismail Wildesh Shaikh (Ould Cheikh) did not provide the dialogue team in the capital Sana’a with any initiative on the political settlement.
