The spokesman stressed that the Yemeni forces will firmly confront the Saudi-led aggression in a bid to defend their country against the Saudi invaders.
Yemen has been since March 2015 under a brutal aggression by Saudi-led coalition, in a bid to restore power to fugitive former president Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi.
