FM Zarif’s Message of Condolence to Leader of Yemen’s Ansarullah
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has offered condolences to Abdul-Malik Badreddin al-Houthi, the leader of Yemen’s Ansarullah Movement, on the martyrdom of his brother Ibrahim.
In the Name of God
Among the believers are men true to what they promised Allah. Among them is he who has fulfilled his vow [to the death], and among them is he who awaits [his chance]. And they did not alter [the terms of their commitment] by any alteration.
Mr Seyyed Abdul-Malik Badreddin al-Houthi,
The respected Leader of Ansarullah Movement,
May the peace, mercy, and blessings of Allah be with you.
I condole with you, your respected family, and the resilient and patient nation of Yemen on the martyrdom of your struggling brother Ibrahim Badreddin al-Houthi. I beseech merciful God to have mercy and bestow highest divine rewards on the honourable martyr, and give great patience and reward to you and your respectable family.
There is no doubt that this great crime, along with other crimes committed so far in the unsuccessful war against the Yemeni nation, indicates the weakness and desperation of hawkish aggressors and mercenaries in confrontation with Yemeni forces. The crime will not only fail to weaken the resolve and morale of the patient and resilient nation of Yemen, but will further put on show the rightfulness of this brave nation.
I wish God would give health to you and divine victory to the struggling nation of Yemen.
Mohammad Javad Zarif
Foreign Minister of the Islamic Republic of Iran
