Exclusive – Al-Khabar Al-Yemeni:
Brigadier General Mohammed Ali Al-Qadri, commander of the Coastal Defense Brigade, was quoted by the Ministry of Defense’s website as saying that his forces constantly monitor all movements, emphasizing that all plots to control the Bab Al-Mandeb Strait and regional waters are exposed.
Al-Qadri emphasized that the “aggression countries,” as he referred to them, are cognizant of Yemen’s geographic significance and have been relentlessly working to control its maritime passages since the commencement of the war in 2015, beginning with the systematic targeting and destruction of naval forces.
He vowed not to permit the execution of what he called “malicious schemes,” considering the American, Israeli, and Gulf presences the primary threat to the security and safety of maritime navigation.
Al-Qadri highlighted that the naval forces’ training and military preparations have developed significantly over the past few years compared to before, reiterating their ability to handle any maritime threat.
Earlier, the US announced the reinforcement of its military presence in the Red Sea, of which Yemen overlooks large parts, as it deployed about 3,000 soldiers and two amphibious and assault ships to enhance the battleships already stationed in the Bab Al-Mandeb Strait and the Gulf of Aden.
