The Saudi defense ministry has hired a number of Israeli military experts to supervise and advise the coalition troops in the war against Yemen, sources close to the Saudi monarchy revealed on Tuesday.
“The Zionist experts supervise the Saudi-led coalition’s operations against Yemen directly in addition to intelligence and military coordination between the two sides,” the sources told FNA on Tuesday.
They also disclosed that another delegation from Israel has traveled to Saudi Arabia in the past few days to supervise construction of a defense ministry site.
“The military site is located 20km Northwest of Hay al-Yasmin in Riyadh,” the sources said.
In relevant remarks on Thursday, Head of Yemen’s High Revolutionary Council Mohammad Al-Houthi underlined that the Saudi regime’s attack on Yemen was meant to save Israel, and said that the Al Saud’s aggression took place at the order of Tel Aviv and Washington.
“Saudi Arabia attacked us because we had become a cause of concern for Israel and it was meant to soothe Israel’s concerns… ,” al-Houthi said.
He reiterated that the Saudi-led aggression against Yemen is taking place upon the direct orders of the US and Israel.
Saudi Arabia launched its bombing campaign against Yemen on March 26 in an attempt to restore power to fugitive President Mansour Hadi, a staunch ally of Riyadh.
Hadi stepped down in January and refused to reconsider the decision despite calls by Ansarullah revolutionaries of the Houthi movement.
Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi warplanes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
The Monarchy’s attacks have so far claimed the lives of at least 3,815 civilians, mostly women and children, according to FNA’s independent tally.
