A senior member of Ansarullah resistance group's political council said that the US and Israel are attempting to prevent termination of war in Yemen for the sake of their own interests.

RNA - "The US and Israel benefit from continued aggression against Yemen, each of them in their own way," Hizam al-Assad said on Monday.

He explained that the US is benefiting from the Yemen war by selling its weapons and military equipment to the aggressive Saudi-led coalition.

"Israel is also attempting to rally Saudi Arabia and the UAE's support for the Deal of Century plot by supporting their aggression against Yemen in return," al-Assad said.

Saudi Arabia and some of its allies, including the United Arab Emirates, Morocco, and Sudan, launched a brutal war against Yemen in March 2015 in an attempt to reinstall Yemen’s former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi.

The aggression initially consisted of a bombing campaign but was later coupled with a naval blockade and the deployment of ground forces to Yemen. Around 20,000 people have died since the war began, says Yemen’s Health Ministry.

The Saudi-led war has also taken a heavy toll on the country’s infrastructure, destroying hospitals, schools, and factories. The United Nations (UN) has said that a record 22.2 million Yemenis are in dire need of food, including 8.4 million threatened by severe hunger.

Despite Riyadh's claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi bombers are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.

According to several reports, the Saudi-led air campaign against Yemen has driven the impoverished country towards humanitarian disaster, as Saudi Arabia's deadly campaign prevented the patients from travelling abroad for treatment and blocked the entry of medicine into the war-torn country.
