The number of attacks by aggressor fighter jets has been more than 274,302 attacks, including 59 attacks last year.
The invasion and siege of our country was carried out under the leadership and supervision of the US and with the participation of Westerners. In the past years, we have monitored the participation of each country in the aggressor coalition. We ask the educational, media and cultural institutions of our country to document all the crimes of the aggressors and the resistance of our people.
Our forces performed more than 13,229 military operations during the battle against the enemy’s brutal attack. Among these operations, we can mention 6702 offensive operations, 6527 defensive operations, neutralizing offensive efforts and enemy advances.
The missile force has carried out 1,828 military operations, including 1,237 operations targeting enemy gatherings inside Yemeni territory. 589 missile operations against the enemy were targeted outside of our geography, which included operations in the depth of the Saudi and Emirati enemies.
We continue to multiply our strategic missile stockpile as a deterrent that has proven effective over the years.

48 US Air Force drones were shot down and 123 other spy drones were shot down.
The Navy and Coastal Defense have carried out 38 special operations in the last 8 years, targeting Saudi and UAE naval vessels was a part of it.

During the eighth year, more than 1,000 vehicles, armored vehicles and military equipment were destroyed or damaged.
Continued aggression and blockade means that the aggressor countries and their followers will suffer more losses.
Continuing the battle will only lead to more conflict and work on other legal options to defend our country.
The regimes that started the aggression should learn lessons from the strengthening of Yemen and what happened in these years.
We emphasize on redoubled efforts to prepare for future developments and increase combat readiness to deal with aggressor and enemy forces.
We reject any presence of foreign forces inside our territory and emphasize that the presence of foreigners is illegal and in line with the attempt to occupy our country. We emphasize that any foreign military presence inside the territory of Yemen is a legitimate goal for our forces and for all Yemeni people.
We send greetings to all the free people of our country and among them the proud tribes who rose up for defense.
We renew our agreement with our beloved people that the armed forces remain loyal to their duties and responsibilities, the most important of which is the liberation war.
We tell our Seyed leader that your people are more determined today to see the battle through to its end.
We emphasize our readiness to implement any order against foreign military presence in Yemen. We are ready to deal decisively with any scenario and neutralize any movement of the aggressors and their mercenaries.
We will continue to develop our military capabilities and increase our combat expertise. We will continue to monitor and deal appropriately with all attempts to loot the national wealth within the framework of our duties and responsibilities.”
