“The free Yemeni people with all its tribes, popular committees and army refuse the presence of foreign forces on its territory, as it consider the US presence a clear colonization,” the statement said.

The revolutionary committee also held the international community responsible for the repercussions of such move due to its silence.

“At a time political efforts are exerted in a bid to put an end to the aggression and the blockade, we stand before a dangerous move represented by the arrival of US invasion forces in the country’s south,” the statement read, according to Yemeni media.

The committee meanwhile, stressed that the Yemeni people are capable of confronting the danger of al-Qaeda and ISIL Takfiri terrorists, which are backed by the Saudi-led aggression.

“We are capable of doing so without any foreign interference.”

“Once again we affirm that the presence of US, UAE and other forces is an occupation aimed at spoiling our country and wealth,” the statement added, stressing that this occupation will be met with resistance by all means.

Yemen has been since March 26, 2015 under brutal aggression by Saudi-led coalition.

Thousands have been martyred and injured in the attack, with the vast majority of them are civilians.

Riyadh launched the attack on Yemen in a bid to restore power to fugitive Hadi who is a close ally to Saudi Arabia.
