The leader of the Ansar Allah group (Houthis), Mohammad Al-Bokhaiti, accused Wednesday UK of participating in theory "aggression and siege imposed on Yemen" with the aim of ensuring a safe military site for it in the future.
Al-Bokhaiti tweeted: "Britain is a partner in the aggression and blockade impsed on Yemen, which has caused the death of hundreds of thousands."
Al-Bokhaiti pointed out that "when a British vessel was attacked, the world did not sit there and committed the UAE and Saudi Arabia to take a firm stand on the STC with the aim of delivering a message that the security and lives of the British are sacred and not like the lives of the Yemenis without value," he said.
The British vessel "Stolt Apal" was attacked in the Gulf of Aden, off the coast of the Yemeni port of Mukalla last Sunday, through an "RPG" missile.
Al-Bokhaiti considered that Britain "through this message secured for itself a secure military foothold in the future, according to rules of engagement that allow it to target Yemen in exchange for ensuring that its forces and interests are not compromised."
Al-Bokhaiti warned Britain that his group is capable of dealing with any foreign forces in Yemen "as occupying forces that must be uprooted."
