Coalition in Yemen's spokesperson: Time favors the coalition forces
Sunday, 16 April 2017
General Ahmed Asiri told Al Arabiya "Saudi forces stationed on the border amount to 100,000 soldiers, and will be able to occupy Yemen in few days. But we want to support political legitimacy in Yemen with the least possible losses on both sides and the preservation of the Yemeni citizenry. We are like a technical team in a hostage situation. Coalition forces preferred to go with the “long breath” approach because it puts the militias under pressure. Today, they are deprived of material supplies and weapons. They have lost a large number of their trained fighters and their leaders. They are eroding day after day. Time is in favor of the coalition forces."
