The official spokesman of the group of Houthis (Ansar Allah) Mohammed Abdulsalam to put the Yemeni President Abdrabbu Mansour Hadi next to exhibits in an exhibition held by the Saudi authorities Thursday at King Abdulaziz International Airport in Jeddah city, which is frequented by a large number of heads and leaders of Arab and Islamic countries to move later to Mecca, which holds three Islamic summits, Arab and Gulf.

Abdulsalam wrote two tweets on Twitter, Thursday night, Friday, seen by "Debriefer" news agency mocking President Hadi: ""For Hadi, he was supposed to be part of exhibits. He is a lesson for those who employed him."

The Houthis spokesman said to the Saudi-led Arab Coalition to support President Hadi's legitimacy in fighting his forces against the Houthis for more than four years: "

It is enough that you claimed that your aggression in order to return Hadi, now he is like any visitor, crying to him your failure."
Mohammed Abdulsalam vowed to avenge the Arab coalition, which is launching air strikes, in some of them civilians killed. He said: "Indeed We, from the criminals, will take retribution."

Abdulsalam pointed out that Saudi Arabia aimed through organizing such exhibition, on the sidelines of its conspiratorial conferences, “to divert attention from its brutal crimes, which it can not cover even by one thousand exhibits.”

The Houthi spokesman renewed his group's call to the coalition to stop what he called "aggression" as a condition to stop the Houthi attacks on Saudi Arabia.

"We thank the organizers of this exhibition, you have started the aggression on Yemen, stop your aggression and your crimes," he said.

Saudi authorities have displayed in King Abdul Aziz airport a number of missiles, drones and other military equipment which they said Houthis in Yemen use to attack the kingdom.

The Saudi defense and foreign ministries are showing these equipment to Arab and Muslim delegates arriving at the airport to participate in the Gulf, Arab and Islamic summits held in Mecca on Thursday and Friday.

These equipment and bombers "prove by evidence the Iranian regime's involvement in these criminal, terrorist acts," the Saudi official news agency reported.

Among the "Iranian-made weapons sh

wn at the exhibition are Qiam missile that was fired on Riyadh in March 2018, a similar missile fired on Mecca, Ababil / Qasef and Rasid drones, and RPG," SPA added.

Saudi Arabia has been leading a military coalition in Yemen since 26 March 2015, in support of forces loyal to President Hadi to retake areas controlled by Houthi (Ansar Allah) group seen as proxy for Iran in the Arab Peninsula country.

In the last weeks, Houthis have intensified drone attacks on Saudi targets, including two on oil pumping stations near Riyadh, with the rebels saying they are in retaliation to coalition strikes on its forces and civilian targets in Yemen.

The Houthis say they fire ballistic missiles and UAVs at Saudi lands in retaliation to coalition strikes on its forces and civilian targets in Yemen.

Yemen has been battered by a five-year armed conflict between the internationally recognised government backed by the Saudi-led coalition and the Iran-backed Houthis. The Houthis have been controlling the capital Sanaa and large parts of most densely populated northern, middle and western regions since they ousted the government in late 2014.

The conflict has caused what the United Nations calls the world's worst humanitarian crisis.

More than 24 million people, more than 80% of the country's population, are in need some form of humanitarian or protection assistance, including 8.4 million people who don't know where their next meal will come from, according to the UN.

And there are nearly 2 million children suffering from acute malnutrition, the UN said.
