The war in Yemen was aimed at protecting citizens of that country and defending the Kingdom from external threats, said Sheikh Saleh Al-Talib, imam and khateeb at the Grand Mosque in Makkah, on Friday.

Al-Talib said the Saudi government did not want a war. “The Kingdom has never called for a war. It has never been hostile throughout its history …”

The Kingdom led the campaign to “defend the holy places, protect Muslims and help Yemenis.” Hope has now returned to Yemen, he said.

Al-Talib said citizens should be wary of reports in the media that have been fabricated by the enemy to undermine the unity of Muslims.

He urged Saudis to remain united and support the government. Disputes among citizens would not benefit the country and “lead to failure.” It was a time for rising “above all differences.”

He said the coalition had achieved its goals. He praised the soldiers of the alliance for carrying out their duty. Those who died on the front lines were martyrs because they were defending truth and justice in the cause of Allah, he said. He said the Yemenis living here with us, and those in their country, are our brothers. “We have a common enemy and common interests.”
