This week’s guest is Brigadier General Ahmad Assiri, the Saudi military spokesperson. Assiri clarifies that the operation Renewal of Hope does not include any ground presence of the alliance’s forces in Yemen. He says he sometimes had to contact some western media outlets to correct some information. He adds that he did not mention the identity of the warplanes participating in the airstrikes because he was speaking in the name of the entire alliance.
