Riyadh- Yemeni ambassador to Lebanon Ali Al-Dulaimi revealed that Hezbollah terrorist militias persistently support the insurgency comprising Houtis and pro –Saleh forces (armed forces supporting the ousted Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh).

A year after the Arab coalition formed and launched operations against the insurgency, incitement against the legitimate Yemeni government has been arranged within Beirut for the purposes of compromising security and stability of Yemen.

The Arab coalition has restored Yemeni authority into a place of efficient practicing of duties and fulfilling constitutional roles.

Ali Al-Dulaimi told Asharq Al- Awsat newspaper that the Yemeni embassy has contacted the Lebanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs in hopes of putting an end to the vandalizing role being played by militias located in Beirut, which is helping tear Yemen apart.

The embassy stressed the negative role played by media outlets like “al-Masseera (the march)” and “Yemen Today” , which are Beirut-based broadcasting channels.

Al-Dulaimi emphasized that the embassy has also demanded curbing activities of Yahya Mohamed Abdullah Saleh- nephew of ousted Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh – who continuously offends Gulf countries.

The ambassador, however, stated that none of the requests had received appropriate response.

The Sana’a embassy in Beirut has recently been closed down after granting Lebanese citizens visas to visit Yemen despite the ongoing war.

Embassy doors were closed down in a measure against the threat of Hezbollah militants slipping into Yemeni grounds to back Houthi militants and get involved in upcoming battles against pro-legitimacy forces.

Many insurgent Yemeni figureheads reside in Lebanon, and they continue holding political meetings with Lebanese figures, despite them not bearing any official or legitimate post, which is considered unacceptable by the Yemeni government.
