The formal condemnations that "everyone has accustomed to"hear at summits are like "cosmetic surgeries and cannot amount to a supporting stance," said Houthi leader on Thursday.

"Collusion with the Israeli enemy has recently occurred and developed into allying with the enemy against the resistance," Abdul Malik al-Houthi added to celebrate the international Quds Day.

"Except for the Palestinian and Lebanese resistance, the regional reality would have been different and the Israeli enemy's influence would have more dangerous," he claimed noting that resistance has been mainly supported by Iran and Syria.

The Ansarullah group is a political-religious armed movement, with the northern province of Sa'ada serving as its main center. It was called 'Houthi' after its founder Badraddeen al-Houthi whose son, Abdul Malik, is leading the group as successor to his brother Hussein who was killed in 2004 by the Yemeni army.

Yemen has been racked by a 4-year bloody conflictbetween the internationally-recognized Yemeni government's forces, backed by a Saudi-led coalition, and the Iranian-backed Houthi rebels who ousted the government in 2014, triggering hard humanitarian conditions and the world's worst humanitarian crisis,according to the UN.

Houthi new leader claimed that the "region today is seeing three courses; resistance, betrayal and collusion... The [Israeli] enemy is moving at all levels to dismantle the nation and knock it down from inside."

He dubbed the Palestine-Israel century peace accord as Trump's deal that "depends on roles by parties (mainly the Saudi regime) moving within the nation and serving the Israeli enemy."

"Enemies are exploiting the sacrednessof Mecca to divert the hostility compass and prepare for normalization with the Israeli enemy .. America and Israel are joint threat to the nation."

"Opposing the American hostile policies prevents the nation's fall into hypocrisy," he added. Therefore, Yemeni people's positions "will only be hostile to America and Israel.

Saudi Arabia hosted two Arab and GCC emergency summits Thursday, and the Islamic Cooperation Organization regular summit on Friday.

The Kingdom is trying, through the summits, to show that GCC, Arab and Muslim worlds are one block against Iran, its bitter rival in the region.

Prior to the summits, Saudi authorities have displayed (to Arab and Muslim delegates arriving) atKing Abdul Aziz airport a number of missiles, drones and other military equipment which they said Houthis in Yemen used to attack the kingdom.

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 shown 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.

Houthis sporadically fire ballistic missiles on Saudi territory "in reply to coalition airstrikes that target Yemeni civilians and infrastructure," while Saudi Arabia accuses Iran of providing Houthis with such missiles.

A Saudi-led coalition intervened militarily in the country in March 2015 to reinstate the government of President Hadi,leaving tens of thousands killed, hundreds of thousands injured, and 3 million displaced.

The 4-year conflict hastriggered what the UN calls the world's worst humanitarian crisis, with most of the population in need for a type of humanitarian aid and immediate protection, including 14 million people risking famine and some 1.8 million children suffering malnutrition.
