Qasim affirmed in statements published on his official account on the (X) platform that the region “will witness very important changes in the Russian position towards Sana’a, following what Yemen and the region have witnessed in recent days.”
He explained, “The shift may be extraordinary for the Russian position, especially if it presents itself as a mediator to resolve some of the pending issues between Sana’a and neighboring countries.”
In another post, he continued by saying, “The control of the Israeli vessel by the Yemeni naval forces will turn the battle completely upside down, and its repercussions will become apparent in the next few days.”
He added, “I will record it for history if there is any retreat in the American and Israeli positions and acceptance of a truce, prisoner exchange, or ceasefire, the credit goes to the Yemenis and Sana’a.”
He emphasized that “this does not diminish the significance of the resistance in Gaza or southern Lebanon, but in the strategic sense, Yemen has altered the equations, and its intervention has made the battle go beyond the control and capacity of the Americans and Israelis to bear it, so it wants to get out with the least losses possible.”
Earlier, Sana’a forces announced the detention of the “Galaxy Leader” ship owned by an Israeli businessman on Sunday, confirming that they will continue their operations against the entity and its ships until the aggression on Gaza ceases.
Earlier, the military spokesman for Sana’a forces, Brigadier General Yahya Saree, announced that Yemeni forces will target all types of ships carrying the Israeli flag or operated by or owned by enemy companies, in support of the people of Gaza.
