Senior Politician: S. Arabia Relocating ISIL from Syria to Yemen
A senior Yemeni politician revealed that Saudi Arabia has transferred hundreds of ISIL members to Yemen to fight as Riyadh’s mercenaries in the war-hit country.

“Saudi Arabia, itself, is the supporter of al-Qaeda and ISIL and it is now transferring members of the two terrorist groups to Yemen,” Leader of Yemen’s Popular Congress Mohammad Mon’am told the Arabic website of Sputnik news agency on Wednesday.

“Last week, 400 ISIL members were transferred to Yemen from Syria on three ships; Saudi Arabia and the US obviously want the terrorists to take control of Bab al-Mandab Strait,” he added.

In relevant remarks in December, Chairman of Yemen’s public organization Alliance for Progress and Development said Saudi Arabia’s aggression against Yemen contributed to the development of such terrorist organizations as al-Qaeda and ISIL.

During the crisis in Yemen, the terrorist organizations managed to receive aid of several foreign banks, Yahya Mohamed Abdullah Saleh said. 

“Saudi aggression against Yemen served as a breeding ground for the development of extremist forces, such as al-Qaeda and ISIL and, in the situation when central authorities are weakened, when the country is in the state of war, these militant forces have an opportunity for spreading their influence, expanding the field of their actions,” Saleh added.

He also urged the international community to put pressure on Saudi Arabia, so that it withdraws troops and stops bloodshed in Yemen.
