Iran-backed Houthis prevented on Monday UN teams from leaving Yemen’s capital, Sanaa.
Earlier on Monday, it was reported that fierce clashes erupted in Hadda district in Sanaa. Iran-backed Houthis heavily shelled al-Siyasi neighborhood in the Yemeni capital.
The past three days have witnessed deadly clashes between supporters of former Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh and his former Houthi militia allies.
This comes as Houthi terrorists have been bruised by the defection of their powerful ally, Saleh.
On Sunday, the Saudi-led coalition launched air strikes on Yemen’s capital, Sanaa, lending support to Saleh after he signaled he was abandoning his support of the Iran-aligned Houthis - a shift that could pave the way to end three years of war.
In a speech on Saturday, Saleh appeared to indicate the end of his loyalists’ alliance with Houthi terrorists. He said he was ready to turn a “new page” in ties with the Saudi-led coalition fighting the Houthis.
