The Houthi minister in the militia’s government in Sanaa, Hassan Zayd, expressed his opinion about the reasons behind the Iranian support for Qatar. He confirmed that defending Qatar is directly related to defending Iran.
Zayd said that “Qatar signed a joint defense agreement with Iran a few months ago, and highlighted that there are common maritime borders between the two countries.”
He praised Iran’s intelligence in encouraging Turkey to be on the military front, widening the gap and disagreement between the countries rallying against Iran.
According to the Houthi minister, Turkey is also targeted by the attack on Qatar because they want to weaken Turkey’s position on the regional level by turning all the allies of Qatar into enemies.
Hassan Zayd is known to be close to the Hezbollah secretary-general, Hassan Nasrallah, who is also a prominent supporter of Khomeini’s revolution in Iran and its expansionist project at the expense of Arab countries.
According to confirmed sources, Zayd plays an important role in the relations between Houthis and Tehran. He has advocated fiercely the Houthi ideology in the Yemeni society.
Yemeni media revealed that Zayd is supervising several women’s training camps in Sanaa, commissioned by the leader of the Houthi leader Abdulmalik al-Houthi.
