Clashes between Yemeni former President's allies, Houthis in Sana'a

Yemen’s General People’s Congress (GPC) are holding Houthis responsible for "igniting war," a statement from the party founded by ousted Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh said on Saturday as fierce clashes erupted in the capital Sana'a, Al-Arabiya reported on Saturday.

Forces belonging to the GPC arrested a Houthi leader in Kaziz military camp south of the capital.

Sanaa has been under Houthi militia control since 2015, in a move described as a coup by the legitimate Yemeni government backed by Saudi Arabia and a coalition of Arab countries. 

On Saturday, fierce clashes were also reported near Saleh's home.

The Yemeni GPC called on armed forces and government employees to disobey Houthi orders.

The conflict has also directly affected the capital where traffic flow has come to a complete halt amid safety concerns.

 

Since March 2015, a Saudi-led military coalition has been fighting the Houthi terrorists in the Arab peninsula state of Yemen.
